Cut back on salt to strip away fat

Men's Fitness - - Updates | Nutrition -

Too much salt isn’t good for your health – it’s linked to an in­creased risk of high blood pres­sure and strokes – but it might also be bad for your waist­line, ac­cord­ing to a new study from Van­der­bilt Univer­sity in the US. Re­searchers found that, in con­tra­dic­tion of the wide­spread as­sump­tion that salty foods make you thirsty, sub­jects given a high-salt diet didn’t in­crease their wa­ter in­take, re­tained more wa­ter and had higher en­ergy re­quire­ments, mak­ing them feel hun­grier. This was likely to lead to greater calo­rie con­sump­tion and fat stor­age.
