A member asked:

Is it ok to eat high sodium 1x per week? i have altered my diet to lower bp. i average 1000-1200 mg of sodium per day, but 1 day per week i will indulge and eat 3000-4000 mg. will the 1 high sodium day prevent my bp from lowering on this diet?

It is preferred that you do not indulge and stay in moderation constantly. However the body has a way of regulating your cravings based on needs. I mean when the body feels a need for anything it could through your brain make you want to take such things like being thirsty when you should drink water. It is important to take your well being over selfindulgence.
