Sodium and Wine - really a change!
I was wondering if anyone else had noticed a difference with your body's tolerance of sodium or alcohol (wine, beer, etc.) since you have lost weight. I was used to EASILY drinking three or four glasses of wine before noticing that funny numb feeling in the nose that told me it was time to SLOW DOWN or to eat something to counteract the effects of the alcohol. Now after just 1/2 of a glass, I am starting to feel that numb feeling in my nose!
Also, I usually add no salt to anything. At restaurants I never noticed before that I felt more bloated or thirsty after eating there, but NOW I seem to be REALLY affected by even the smallest amount of salt, and restaurant food seems to be out of control when it comes to salt!
Have any of you ever requested that NO SALT be used in the cooking at reataurants? I'm REALLY NEW to asking for special treatment -dressings on the side, sauces on the side, no cheese on salads, no croutons on salads, etc.!!! Of course when I cook at home it is all very easy because I can control everything.
