    Mindy F., From: Ontario, Canada :

    I'm wondering what affect sugar and salt have on my diet and how I should use them along with my excercise and diet plan to successfully lose weight.

    Salt is found in many foods naturally, so very little extra is needed to be added. An excess of salt in our diet causes water retention and even potential high blood pressure. So, as you can see, keeping sodium at relatively low levels (around 2500mg. a day) is both a good health choice as well as a good diet choice. Sugar should be avoided in processed form, that is, white table sugar. However, also realize that processed sugar is in most of our sweet confections from doughnuts to root beer. Sugar is high in calories even though it has no fat. Therefore, don't be fooled that low fat claims on dessert items means that they are not fattening. Calories are calories and the body has to burn them no matter where they come from. If you need some sweetness in your diet to keep yourself sane try fresh fruit in moderation. You'll be surprised at how satisfying it can be. Good luck.


    That's it for this time,
