Tips For Lowering Salt Intake

Restaurants (fine dining, chain, and fast food) are notorious for pouring on the salt. A single restaurant entrée can easily dish out more than 4,000 mg sodium (that’s almost triple what someone with hypertension should have!). Dining at home more often will make a significant dent in your sodium intake, and, in all likelihood, cut back on your calories, refined carb and saturated fat too. Make dining out a special treat; your blood pressure, waistline — and wallet — will thank you.
