If someone were to drink a couple of fresh, young coconuts a day (or more) and
therefore get a fair bit of sodium from them, would the need for greens come
down a bit?

I know micromanagement of nutrition is futile of course, but I'm sure you agree
that it's still an interesting thing to do simply for comparison! I see that when I
eat a day of only fruit (mangoes, bananas, lychees on a 2500 calorie diet) the
only two things that are fairly low compared to when I eat a pound of greens as
well, is sodium and perhaps calcium a little bit. If I were to eat 200 grams of
greens plus 600g coconut water, it sort of looks the same as if I didn't drink the
coconut but had the pound of greens! My question is sort of this; is the 2-6 % of
calories from greens especially wide to accomodate sodium needs, and would
drinking some coconut water essentially reduce the need for greens a little? I'm
looking for a hypothetical answer!

Thanks for clarifying Doug!
