How Cutting Back on Sodium Helps With Weight Loss
Cutting back on sodium is good for your overall health, especially for your heart and kidneys. But it can also help shrink your waistline, too.
"Eating too much salt can cause the body to retain excess fluid, which can give you a bloated appearance," Jillian explained. "Plus, frequently eating high-salt processed foods like chips, fast food, and frozen dinners could lead to weight gain simply because these foods are typically high in calories and unhealthy fats."
To cut back on salt intake and eat healthier, overall which may result in weight loss, she recommends people focus on eating whole, natural foods and avoid processed food. Even better, eat at home and cook your own meals as much as possible so you know what you're ingesting.
