Is salt a demon?
I think not. Salt improves the flavor of food, and if the intake of salt is reduced too much, there can be unintended and possibly adverse consequences.
So, what’s the right answer?
There’s alot of debating going on right now in the medical community about salt, and while the talks continue, consider this:
Keep it simple–stop eating processed foods (a HUGE source of sodium) and start eating whole foods (fruit, vegetables, small amounts of animal protein, nuts, beans, whole grains) . . . all of which have low or no sodium, except what you add while preparing. And, when you do add salt, try sea salt. Its flavor is more intense, so a little goes a long way.
If you follow the eating plan suggested by the experts in my book, you’ll naturally lower your intake of sodium.
