Change Your Salty Ways

By | source: Jul 27th, 2014

You know how most people have an undeniable sweet tooth that sends them hurling towards cupcakes, candy, and sodas?  I kind of wish I had that, but I have a salty tooth. Too many sweets or something too sweet will give me a tummy ache, along with a throbbing headache. Most people with a sweet tooth can revel in their sugary afterglow, known as a sugar high. In contrast, whenever I indulge in a salty treat, I get puffy, thirsty and bloated. If I have a salty snack any time after 5 p.m., I wake up parched with swollen fingers.

Todayâ??s infographic challenges us to change our salty ways in less than a month. In three weeks you can change your sodium palate, which will lead to your enjoyment of less salty food, and ultimately less bloating. Learning to read and understand food labels, as well as looking for the American Heart Associationâ??s Heart-Check mark on food products can keep your sodium intake at bay. Check out the three week step guide laid out below to help you change your salty ways in only 21 days! [via]
