Constipation issues
Congratulations on your weight loss success , and
with just a small adjustment to your diet, you can say goodbye to
any weakness, fatigue and constipation. The solution is salt. . .a bit more salt to
be specific. This may sound like we're crazy when many experts
argue that we should all eat less salt, however these are the same
experts who tell us that eating lots of carbohydrates and sugar is
OK. But what they don't tell you is that your body functions very
differently when you are keto-adapted. When you restrict carbs
for a week or two, your kidneys switch from retaining salt to
rapidly excreting it, along with a fair amount of stored water. This
salt and water loss explains why many people experience rapid
weight loss in the first couple of weeks on a low carbohydrate
Ridding your body of this excess salt and water is a good
thing, but only up to a point. After that, if you don't replace some
of the ongoing sodium excretion, the associated water loss can
compromise your circulation The end result is lightheadedness
when you stand up quickly or fatigue if you exercise enough to
get 'warmed up' . Other common side effects of carbohydrate
restriction that go away with a pinch of added salt include
headache and constipation; and over the long term it also helps the
body maintain its muscles . The best solution is to include 1 or 2
cups of bouillon or broth in your daily schedule. This adds only
1 - 2 grams of sodium to your daily intake, and your ketoadapted
metabolism insures that you pass it right on through within a
matter of hours (allaying any fears you might have of salt buildup
in your system) . This rapid clearance also means that on days that
you exercise, take one dose of broth or bouillon within the hour
before you start.

Practically speaking, the easiest way to get this sodium is to
buy standard bouillon cubes and consume 2 per day. They are
cheap , compact, last months without refrigeration, and hot water
is easily found. A more traditional path is to make your own meat
or vegetable broth containing 1 teaspoon of salt per quart.

precise number of calories
You often have to do a bit of calculation. If the serving size is 100 grams, type in 1/2 (half) or if there is a drop down box, choose g and type in 50. Hope this helps
