When you go and look at our habits of fast-food....just one episode of eating out is an entire day’s worth of sodium. If you really wanted to change your life while in your forties...limit yourself to one fast-food episode a month....manage at least one piece a fruit a day....and cut out all sodas. You’d probably add five more years onto your life.
Not just fast food. Seems to me that all restaurants add too much salt and high sodium ingredients to their meals. Olive Garden, for example. Last I looked, there was nothing on the menu under 800 mg. of sodium. If you ask at these restaurants to have the chef not add salt to your food, you are told the meals are prepared according to a set recipe from which no deviation is permitted.
I guess some folks react badly to salt and eggs, but a good many of us could thrive on a daily dose of salted hard boiled eggs for breakfast. If they want to improve our health, cut back on most of the "healthy" low-fat, artificial sweetener, over-loaded soy products that they tout as health foods and exercise. The prepackaged "convenience" foods also add a lot of extra things that most of us do not need and many cannot tolerate. Many folks of the times consider nuking a TV dinner to be cooking...
Add 5 years to your life? Why the hate? Lol. I seriously find the last 5 I could have lived without.
