Low Sodium and weight Loss

People often neglect to think about the sodium content of foods, even if their food may be very high in sodium, which can cause health problems. High blood pressures are most frequently occurs as a result of high levels of sodium in the body. So, while we obviously need to look at fat and carbs, we need to check sodium levels as well.
Not only to maintain our health, because low sodium also plays an important role in terms of weight Loss.

New research shows that excess sodium intake promotes excess white fat mass. The higher your salt intake, the fatter you look because the fat cells themselves enlarged. High sodium intake seems to cause fat cells to store more glucose in the cell, making those cells larger.

Sodium is often interpreted as salt, because salt is a major source of sodium for us. Consuming low sodium table salt or sea salt will be very helpful in this regard. FIND IT. The American Heart Association recommends that for every 1,000 Calories of food consumed, the sodium intake should be 1,000 mg and should not exceed the 3,000 mg limit.

Actually, sea salt in the salt shaker at the dinner table is only about one-third of our daily intake. The rest comes from processed food. But we can control the use of salt sea in the salt shaker, while we can not know the concentration of sodium in processed foods. Especially when we buy foods such as cakes, biscuits and 'take-away' foods. I think the chef of the famous Chinese restaurant does not even know how much sodium content of a plate of food that they cooked and presented to us.

Try to check food labels for sodium because you may not realize how much sodium is in food, especially canned food. Reduce consumption of sports drinks, lemonade, iced tea because they are known to contain high sodium.

For people interested in weight loss, cutting excess sodium is important.
