Friday morning weigh in 220.2. Can't even blame water retention because I managed a very low sodium day yesterday after the salt lick I ate on Wednesday...

    When I eat a 'salt lick' it stays around for 3-4 days. So stick with it - you are almost there!

    What were you hoping for? What are your goals? Water weight can fluctuate for a number of different reasons. Sodium intake is one possible reason, but not the only one. Sometimes high sodium intake won't affect your weight until several days after. There is no real way to predict it, so no real reason to get hung up on one particular weigh in. Just keep up with your goals and trying to hit your calories and the weight will come off.

    What is a salt lick?

    A salt lick is a deposit of mineral salts used by animals to supplement their nutrition, ensuring that they get enough minerals in their diets. A wide assortment of animals, primarily herbivores, use salt licks to get essential nutrients like calcium, magnesium, sodium, and zinc. When a salt lick appears, animals may travel to reach it, so the salt lick becomes a sort of rally point where lots of wildlife can be observed.

    Farmers have historically provided salt licks for their cattle, horses, and other herbivores to encourage healthy growth and development. Typically a salt lick in the form of a block is used in these circumstances, and the block may be mounted on a platform so that domesticated animals do not consume dirt from the ground along with the necessary salt. Salt blocks for farm animals can also be treated with medications, which may be convenient when someone needs to medicate shy animals, or a large group of animals.
