comment building muscle and fat at same time? bulking/cutting phases?
As a beginner, you probably CAN lose fat and gain muscle at the same time. Consider barbell training (squats, deadlifts, presses) to replace some of the isolation exercise I infer that you're doing - and I would do the weights before cardio (else you're too tired out to really build strength). Good luck!

comment How many pounds of water retention will be caused by 2300 mg of sodium?
I suspect there are way, way too many confounding factors to answer this in vivo. What is your current electrolyte balance (not just sodium, but all of them)? How hydrated were you? How quickly is that sodium digested, and in what form? How hot is it outside? How much will you sweat? I think you get the idea...

comment Losing weight by fasting every other day?
@JohnP I don't think it has to be about "exercise" per se to be on topic. Body re-composition is fair game.
