We know that carbs are not the enemy. So what is the enemy?
I hate salt more then I hate wheat.
This processed crap is killing you!
Before we talk about how cutting salt could help you EAT THE CAKE AND NOT GAT FAT I want to talk about how cutting it from your diet can affect your health.
I’m not trying to put you on a diet; I’m trying to make you healthy, and salt does not make you healthy!
These are some of the health risks that come with eating too much salt (I’ll explain how much salt is too much, don’t worry): high blood pressure, heart disease, strokes, osteoporosis and stomach cancer.
That’s pretty scary, but how much is too much? Well, do you add salt to your food?
Then you are eating too much salt and you at risk of getting one or more of these “fun” symptoms.
There is salt in pretty much everything we eat.
From dark leafy green to the oat you eat.
You do not need to add salt to your food – it is already there:
1 cup of Chard Swiss – 76mg
1 cup of Carrot – 38mg
0.75 cup of Oat – 320mg
2 tblsp ketchup – 334mg
1 whole egg – 60mg
And that’s just some of the food that you eat on a daily base.
That not even one meal on you almost reach the recommend daily allowance of salt.
The recommend daily allowance is 6 grams per day for adult = 1 teaspoon of table salt per day.
Be honest: do you eat more than one teaspoon of salt a day?
You probably eat a lot of table salt and then of course there’s all the salt that you get from your food anyway to add. So the actual amount of salt in your diet is out of control!!!!
You’re not healthy.
Stop adding salt to your food!
I’m not saying “do not have sodium in your diet”; what I’m saying is that if YOU won’t add salt to your diet you would be able to EAT THE CAKE AND NOT GET FAT.
Sodium is a mineral and your body needs it.
There’s sodium in salt but salt is not sodium and those two shouldn't be confused.
Rule #11 – don’t add salt to your food.
I think it’s simple and you’ll be surprise as to how fast your taste buds get used to it.
Don’t add it when you sit and eat don’t add it when you cook or bake, don’t add it at all.
