There’s so much media hype about “no sugar” but what about salt?

Salt matters – find out why by clicking here!

Hi..it’s me!  Yes, sorry I have been MIA for so long – with life getting in the way it’s been tough to find time to blog.  Anyhoo – this one is just going to be quick.

I’m currently doing some Saturday study [on a side note I have been accepted into a bachelor of exercise science and a bachelor in human nutrition to start this August!  WOO HOO!  Totally pumped!] and my current chapter is all about vitamins and minerals.

I’ve come to the end of the chapter and am reading about sodium.  In a nutshell diets high in sodium are not good.  But why do we hear so much media hype about no sugar and/or no fat and not so much about no sodium?

Personally, my problem has always been more of the sugar than the sodium as I’m much more of a sweet tooth – but for those of you who love their savouries, maybe check to see just how much sodium you are taking in.

I ask you to have a read of the link above and if you want to read more also check out:

It’s amazing just how much sodium can be found in our diets without even realising it.  Make sure you are also aware that salt and sodium are not the same thing.  Yes salt is made up of sodium, but they are not interchangeable.  For example one gram of salt equates to around 400mg of sodium.

Anyway have a read and let me know your thoughts – are you a salt lover?
