Obesity is not caused by over-eating. - You know you see lots of slim people eating like there's no tomorrow and they don't put weight on so clearly eating too much is not the cause of the 'obesity epidemic'.
Obesity is caused by a combination of salt sensitivity and salt intake. - Only people who are sensitive to salt become fat/overweight/obese. This happens because for them, salt is very harmful: it holds excess water in their bodies. This is often called fluid retention or oedema. The veins swell and the skin gets thinner as it stretches to accommodate the swollen veins.
Reducing calories does not help with these problems. It is irrelevant to them. - Reducing salt is what helps. - By eating less salt and salty food you can easily and swiftly lose some of the excess water and thus lose weight - a lot of weight, since water is heavy. - Remember the mnemonic:
'A pint of pure water
Weighs a pound and a quarter.'
Lose weight by eating less salt! Go on! - Try it! - You will feel so much better!
