Sodium Vs. Calories
Wednesday, June 13, 2012
My question for today is: how much does sodium really matter in terms of weight loss?
I'm well aware that too much sodium is bad for you in many respects and I'm trying to control it. I find this part VERY difficult. However, if I'm eating within my calorie range and I have a high sodium content, will that cause me not to lose weight?
For instance, king crab legs. I don't use butter or anything but just the crab legs alone have a TON of sodium but they're low in calories. Don't get me wrong, I do not eat crab every day (what do you think I am, The Donald?) but I like to have it once in a while and it doesn't bust my calories...but the sodium is a whole different story.
Any thoughts would be appreciated....
