    Re: How much salt is too much ?

    salt is a necessary electrolyte found in our food

    hypothetically if you were to water fast prolonged and do physical activity, you would need to actually supplement some salt along the way along with other electrolytes or you would get an imbalance

    so salt is not our enemy. my view is a lot of foods that HAVE SALT are the enemy. processed meats, packaged foods, frozen foods, etc. so when doctors tell people to avoid salt they are simply being lazy. what they SHOULD say is avoid processed and frozen foods and eat whole foods.

    No you should not cut it out completely. Unfortunately, many people eat a lot.of processed foods which contain extraordinary amounts of it.

    Of course anything of too much will become an issue but salt is vital in our hydration and cells being able to hold water in the body is because of salt.

    Salt is required. And I even saw an article recently that said ....guess what “salt may not be as bad for us as we have always thought” which I have always said because I eat salt like it’s oxygen. Do not cut out salt.

    Do not cut out salt. We need more salt than the average person because of activity. You also dont wamt to consume too much either. Just keep it balanced

    It you're eating clean whole foods you don't need to worry about it.

    If you're eating processed foods or eating out that's a different story.
