Avoiding Excessive Sugar and Salt

Written by  Dr. Ashish Kapoor    |   Created on:  Friday, 10 January 2014 00:00
Discover how you can reap the benefits of cutting back on sugar and salt without sacrificing taste, flavor, or enjoyment!

Your body needs less than 1,000 milligrams of sodium a day. That's under half a teaspoon of table salt. But if you are like most Americans, you consume up to four times that amount. The result? Increased risk of high blood pressure, heart disease, and stroke.

As for added sugar, most of us consume more than twice the recommended daily amount, increasing the risk of obesity, diabetes, and even depression.
