best low sodium meals

Best low sodium meals

A good "low sodium meal" is a lot more than simply one that avoids salt. Grocery store shelves are lined with all kinds of junk foods that proudly tout the fact that they are "low sodium". Many people mistaken think that "low sodium" is a synonym for "healthy" - far from it. In fact, for most people sodium is not a problem - please discuss this with your doctor. The real problem is the junk foods that the salt is found IN. Yes, deep fried pork rinds are really salty and really horrible for your health but its not the salt that is the problem. If you are concerned with gaining muscle, losing fat, and being healthy there is a lot that goes in to determining what constitutes the "best low sodium meal". If you are trying to gain muscle then the protein content of the meal is very important. If you are trying to lose fat then its important to pack a maximum of protein, vitamins, anti-oxidants, fiber, and omega 3 fatty acids into a minimum of calories.

The mistake most people make when googling "best low sodium meals" is that they are only getting a dangerous half answer. You cannot simply say that "baked chicken and broccoli" is a good low sodium meal because its NOT unless you eat just the right amount. Eat too much and you will GAIN fat, not lose it. Eat too little and you cause your body to burn off muscle. Not only do you need to know what meals to eat but what the proper portion size is!
