How much sodium is bad?

I am trying to get a six pack and I would like to know if sodium may impede my goal.

i dont know exactly at what level sodium becomes bad, however I have heard that too much of it can cause retention of water.

If anyone else knows much about it, I am also interested to read.

Well here's the thing. It only causes water retention. Therefore, until your bodyfat levels are super low it doesn't relaly matter because you have nothing to show anything. Once you get lower bodyfat levels then start to worry about it because it can cause water retention and therfore make you appear fatter.

Also consider that your body will regulate itself to your sodium level as long as you are consistent. So if you always eat high sodium, your body will get used to it.

Best bet is to try and stay away from processed/canned foods...
