    Wouldn't like to encourage you to try it, even the smallest amount. Don't think I've ever come across anyone saying you can get away with X amount of salt so I would say until you speak to your CDC don't try it.

    Not sure about ketosis I'm afraid, do you have any ketostiks? I'd lay off the salt, at least for a couple of weeks purely to see if your weight losses go up.

    Salt is a definate no no! It ultimatley slows down kidney function, which means that the liver is busy processing all that urine instead of burning fat.

    Good luck with the no salt, I was a terrible salt addict pre-CD. Could you try some herbs maybe instead or a little grinding of black pepper?

    Erm, no! I would seriously consult your CDC before attmpting to try anything than those items suggested in the CD books.

    Pre-packaged foods mean additives, which usually means salt...

    Stick to the guidelines in your Cambridge booklets or you risk slower weight losses & dropping out of ketosis.....it's not worth trying things if you risk undoing all your hard work.
    Sounds boring, but ask anyone, it's the best way for the diet to work properly !

    Salt definately makes you retain water (which adds weight on the scales in many cases !), so avoid it at all costs !

    Good luck with your weight loss journey !!!
