Miso is a fermented grain product, usually fermented rice or barley. Miso is available in most health food stores and in many grocery stores. There’s no magic to miso, but it is a good way to help make sure you are getting enough salt on a weight loss diet, especially if you don’t like bouillon. Miso comes in a paste, that you mix into hot water – usually 1 tablespoon of miso per cup of hot water. Miso does not readily dissolve in water, so you have to grind the paste into the hot water, usually with a spoon against the bottom of your cup. If you want to be fancy, you can use a mortar and pestal to dissolve the miso into the water. On most low calorie, low carbohydrate quick weight loss diets, you need 4 bouillon cubes a day to prevent severe muscle cramps from salt loss. If you hate bouillon, try miso. Or get miso soup from a Japanese restaurant, and drink several cups a day.
Use miso instead of bouillon
