Potassium and Dieting
Potassium is a mineral that our bodies do not naturally produce; therefore, we must get it through our foods and/or supplements. Sometimes, especially when dieting, one may experience leg cramps or achy muscles. Low levels of potassium may be the cause. Here are some foods which are high in potassium and are also on our approved list of foods for the diet:
If you are experiencing achy or cramping muscles and you are already eating these high potassium foods, it may mean you need to also add a supplement. Many times it can also be as simple as not getting enough water, so make sure you are drinking the right amount of water daily (half your body weight in ounces of water, with a minimum of 64 ounces).
