    I have been drinking sparkling water. Most say they have 1% sodium. Is there a reason that I shouldn't drink it. I drink 2 litres of plain water while working out. I also never use salt and eat pretty clean.
    Thoughts??

    I think it's probably OK. Personally, I don't like all the fizzling.

    Keep on drinking it as you wish. I do! If you're concerned about the sodium, don't be! 1% is so low, it's heavily diluted and almost non-existent.

    Isn't seltzer made without sodium?

    Check label.

    I drink these daily. There is nothing in them but water, bubbles and a tiny bit of flavoring. No sodium. No calories. No artificial sweeteners. They're a real treat when you want a soft drink without any of the guilt.

    I love to pop one in the freezer about 20 minutes before I'm ready to drink it. It gets all slushy n' shit.

    You know you do need salt, right? I hope you're getting salt somewhere. Also, 2 liters of water while working out is kind of a lot of water. You lose salt through sweat and urination. The more water you drink, the more salt you lose. You can develop hyponatremia, which is quite serious.

    As I understand it, the calcium issues with carbonated drinks is only a problem with soft drinks containing phosphoric acid.

    My aunt recently had that. She's been avoiding salt because of her blood pressure but due to the lack of salt she started fainting and fell and hurt herself. In the ER they'd done some blood tests and saw how low her sodium level was and had her start drinking gatoraid.

    venue35 saidI think Perrier is naturally carbonated. No carbon. It is fizzy right from the spring. Might be too expensive o drink all the time though.



    the bottled perrier is too expensive but it comes in cans too and they're relatively cheap

    Sodium is ok, especially during the warmer weather.

    I drank fizzy water throughout a workout once. After an incident on the decline situp bench I resolved to stick to plain water in future. I like having some San Pellegrino with a strong coffee though.

    Indeed it is. One of our guys in Iraq died from hyponatremia, having followed the usual advice to drink lots of water while acclimatising there.

    Unintended saidSodium content is not the only concern. Any carbonated beverage can cause acid flux.
