Hot water w/ lemon to flush out sodium
A friend told me that a good way to get excess sodium out, if you just ate something salty, is to mix a cup of hot water with lemon juice. I read about this on a bodybuilding site and I guess it is just a diuretic.
I really love organic Ramen noodles (at health food stores) but they have lots of sodium so I always follow w/ the hot water. It really works. I haven't put on weight the day after like I usually would - even if I ate the noodles in the evening.
anyone heard about this?

Nope, haven't heard about this effect. I've only heard from various sources that hot water with lemon first thing in the morning is really good for your intestines/colon, but that's about it. Not saying your wrong (in fact, I'd love to discover that you're right!)...I'm just surprised that I haven't heard it before as an argument for drinking hot water with lemon.

Do you think drinking hot tea with lemon has the same effect? I may like that a bit more than hot water alone.

Yeah maybe that would work.

I wouldn't say that black tea would have the same effect due to the caffeine. Perhaps a light herbal one. Interestingly, I've been living in Europe for a while, and after a big restaurant meal everyone orders a hot tea with lemon. I thought it was just a cultural thing, but perhaps they're onto something and I just didn't think of it in that way.

Interesting. I drink hot water with lemon and honey when I'm sick. Sometimes, I'll have at least 6 glasses in a day. I feel almost "cured" when I drink it. I wonder if it's flushing out the toxins as well.
