Following one healthy practice in the new year

Filed under: Healthy diet — admin @ 12:20 am

One healthy practice that I will follow during the new year is to cut down the intake of salt and sugar. I am actually following the advice given in Harvard Medical School newsletter.

“Your body needs less than one gram of sodium a day. That’s under half a teaspoon of table salt. But if you are like most Americans, you consume up to four times that amount. The result? Increased risk of high blood pressure, heart disease, and stroke.

As for added sugar, most of us consume more than twice the recommended daily amount, increasing the risk of obesity, diabetes, and even depression.”

The last one is a bit surprise, as I used to think sugar lifts people up spiritually. Maybe not so.
