  1. so how can we fit this into the human evolutionary idea of diet? I mean. if some of our ancestors were keto adapted (not by choice), how could they have survived with no added salt intake?

  2. What is not mentioned is the fact that table salt has been highly processed.  It has been stripped of the natural trace & micro-trace minerals normally present in sea salt and ancient sea bed salt deposits on land.  It is super-heated to ~1,200 F, which reportedly changes the salt in ways that are not beneficial.  Then, chemicals are added as anti-caking agents.  See Dr. Mercola's website for more info (no affiliation ).

  3. Here it is high summer so very humid, sweating it out when exercising at high heart rate during the daytime. No issues now I have increased my salt on foods. Considerably so. I sense how much I need and just follow this instinct.
