I hear from so many about salt intake and worrying that they are taking in too much. Recent studies recommend that you should be sticking to around 2,300 mg a day. You shouldn’t be eating salt without restraint— focus on limiting salty processed or restaurant food. Also reduce use or stop your use of the salt shaker. Be sure to eat plenty of potassium-rich fruits and vegetables to balance sodium in the body—but you also shouldn’t be obsessing about keeping your salt intake super low. Your body needs salt to function.
