So I know that we should limit our salt intake because that can cause water retention and + on the scale. And we don't want to eat too many carbs because it will make us hungry sooner than it should. What are some other types of calories that could resulti in stuff like that? Also are their any types of calories that can actually result in faster loss? For example, I think apple are dieuretics (sp?) I'm just curious.
