Shake off the salt in your weight loss program whereas retaining meals flavorful

The FDA’s goal is to help people gradually lower their salt intake closer to the federal recommendation of 2,300 milligrams per day for most teenagers and adults.

Kowalski’s Markets nutritionist Sue Moores says there are certain food groups that can make a huge contribution to daily salt intake, especially highly processed foods. Some of the more common foods that are high in salt include bread, soups, pizza, sandwiches, and charcuterie and cold cuts.

Moores says a high-sodium diet can have several potential health consequences, including higher blood pressure and an increased risk of heart problems and certain types of cancer. Diets high in salt have also been linked to weakened bones.

However, there are several simple ways to reduce your sodium intake. Moores suggests finding low-sodium food choices while increasing your potassium intake, which can help lower blood pressure.
