Tip: Reduce Sodium for Great Health and Weight Loss

saltshakerAmericans currently eat 9 to 12 grams of salt per day, which is far in excess of the 5 to 6 grams per day that is recommended by most health organizations, according to Dr. Kirsten Bibbins-Domingo. The salt shaker and processed and prepared foods accounts for 80% of the salt in the US—and other Western nations’ diets. People can lose weight and improve their health (reduce heart disease, lower high blood pressure) by reducing salt intake by 3 g per day. How to do this? Check the label on foods and look for low sodium. Instead of using the salt shaker replace that with seasonings like Mrs. Dash Herb Blend, McCormick’s Roasted Garlic and Bell Pepper. Also, add rosemary, thyme, oregano, lemon, and other herbs, spices and seasonings to your food.
