"IF" you use wild Alaskan salmon and sardines for to supply your meat protein and have this early in the day, you may find that it may not take very much to keep you satisfied, as far as your Protein needs!
The kelp contains sodium and potassium as well as many other Alkaline Minerals!
If you take the Kelp with the Blackstrap Molasses drink, then you should not have any problem with too much fluid retention, because the Blackstrap Molasses contains a higher level of Potassium than it does of Sodium and if you increase your Calcium usage, then this may also help solve some of the problem of carrying too much water!!
Smile Tis your choice.
