Are you overweight and apple-shaped? You could reduce this problem by reducing salt intake.

Are you overweight and apple-shaped? You could reduce the problem by cutting down on salt and salty food. Everyone who is overweight has a higher than normal blood volume because of excess water/fluid retention, and would benefit from eating less salt/sodium. 

(Steroid victims in particular are at risk of huge weight gain and the dangerous condition of being obese and apple-shaped, because they are so seldom informed that they need seriously to reduce their salt intake while taking the steroid meds.)

Lose weight, reduce your risk of most cancers, high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes, stroke, heart disease, angina, vascular dementia, osteopenia, osteoporosis, hypercholesterolaemia, depression, liver and kidney problems, and improve your health in many other ways without drugs or expense by eating less salt! - Try it! - You will feel so much better!


  1. I love how you believe you can loose weight by cutting out the salt. I have never added salt to my dinner and i dont had salt to my cooking. The only salt intake i do have is that what is hidden in foods. I have been told in the last ciuple of years that I am diabetic and doctors cant figure out why. I have a slightly higher then normal blood pressure, lost lots of weight and have bad dental problems all due to a condition that the doctors cant figure out why i have it.

  2. It is the salt that "is hidden in foods" that accounts for well over half of most people's salt intake, because food manufacturers add such a lot of salt to their products. To improve your health it is best to cut down on processed foods or to avoid them completely. Reducing salt intake in this way would also lower your slightly high blood pressure.

  3. I am really careful about what salt I add at home. I will now be checking salt levels more carefully on food packaging.
