Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This all-new health guide from the American Heart Association, the most trusted source on cardiovascular health, makes living a low-sodium lifestyle more achievable than ever before.

Given the association's recommendation that Americans should reduce their daily sodium intake by half to 1,500 milligrams, going low-sodium can seem daunting at best, but this user-friendly book makes it both possible and practical. With up-to-date health information, real-life strategies, and 60 low-sodium recipes for popular high-sodium foods, American Heart Association Eat Less Salt provides a complete toolkit for adopting a low-sodium lifestyle one step at a time.

Everyone can benefit from eating less salt: Millions of Americans (including 97 percent of children) consume far more sodium than they need, averaging about 3,400 milligrams of sodium a day, or seven times what the body needs to function. Current statistics say that nine out of ten Americans will develop high blood pressure at some time in their lives. The higher the sodium intake, the greater the risk for high blood pressure and its potentially deadly effects, including heart attack and stroke.

To address that risk, here is guidance on how to cut back on sodium and make the lifestyle adjustments that can prevent or reduce high blood pressure.  In American Heart Association Eat Less Salt, you will find realistic strategies and approaches for achieving your low-sodium goals.

Features include:

-An action plan for small incremental changes

-Easy-to-understand charts for targeting high-sodium foods both at home and when eating out

-Tips for staying focused on eating well

-Information on deciphering food labels

-60 recipes for low-sodium favorites.

American Heart Association Eat Less Salt shows you how to gradually reduce your dietary sodium without feeling deprived.

Synopsis:

Knock down that sodium--but not the flavor--to decrease your blood pressure and risks for heart attack and stroke. This toolkit, sodium tracker, and cookbook in one gives you solid health information and 60 low-sodium recipes for favorite comfort foods. With the book's step-by-step approach, eating less salt has never been more achievable.

Everyone can benefit from a lower sodium diet: Millions of Americans (including 97 percent of children) consume far more sodium than they need, averaging about 3,400 milligrams of sodium a day, or seven times what the body needs to function. To help you achieve the association's recommended daily sodium intake of 1,500 milligrams, Eat Less Salt gives you realistic strategies for cutting back on sodium gradually.

With this book, you’ll learn how to:

-Monitor your current sodium intake

-Reduce the high-sodium products in your pantry, refrigerator, and freezer

-Read and understand food labels

-Know which popular foods are “salt traps”

-Keep sodium in check while eating out

-Plan healthy, lower-sodium weekly menus without sacrificing flavor
