Winner “Linda G” Selected 4/1/11

The Salt Solution Book CoverSodium is necessary to many bodily functions, but most Americans eat two to three times more than the recommended daily allowance. Unless you suffer from low blood pressure, your weight loss plan would probably benefit from a reduction in salt. The Salt Solution by Heather K. Jones is a six week plan that will help you reset your taste buds. By lowering your sodium, you can also lose weight and boost your metabolism.

The program begins with a two week cleanse, which removes all artificial ingredients from your diet. The next four weeks increases your caloric intake somewhat, and you will eat four 300 calorie meals each day. The book will also help you understand how sodium affects the body, so that you can continue to eat a low sodium diet after the six week program is over.

The Salt Solution mostly focuses on diet, however the book also discusses the befits of exercise. Jones recommends a walking workout, which is ideal for people who are starting with a low level of physical fitness. However, those who are more active will need a more intense exercise regimen.

I actually don't care for salt and am trying to reduce my high blood pressure. I've cut back on eating out and began cooking more at home. I substitute pepper and other spices on meats and I try to eat fresh vegetables without adding anything to it, to enjoy their natural flavor.

***WINNER*** I am guilty of salting food before I taste I have started tasting it first. I have also gone heavier on the pepper and other fresh spices and not the salt. I have also left the salt shaker off the dinner table.

i love cutting out salt by supplementing in extra spices (even premade ones like Mrs. Dash) w/my meals & snacks or extra veggies for added flavor :)

I love salt and suffered from low blood pressure as a kid which resulted in me getting used to WAY too much sodium. Now I'm trying to DECREASE my intake and it's not easy. Thanks for the recommendation.
