THIS WEEK’S “ASK GILAD” BLOG

Question: Why should we limit the amount of salt we consume?

Answer: Too much salt in your diet increases the risk of high blood pressure, heart disease, and stroke.  Most of the sodium in our diet comes from salt that has been added to processed food we eat.  Most Americans consume more than twice the recommended daily amount of salt.

You can keep your salt intake in check by following these simple, common sense guidelines. 
  1. Avoid processed foods.
  2. Never add salt to your food while you are cooking it.  If you must add salt the only time to do that is when it is on your plate.
  3. Never salt your food without tasting it first.
  4. Try using one of the 'lite' salt products which are half sodium and half potassium chloride.
