I can literally feel my blood pressure rise when I eat too much salt. I get what I call a sodium (salt) induced headache. I'm an avid label reader too, you'd be amazed at how much of your USDA allowance of sodium is in a single serving in processed food! I nearly have a stroke reading it! Amazingly enough, even in your Lean Cusine and other so-called diet foods, they have a LOAD of sodium in them! SCARY!

Great topic Briansbutterfly!

Salt makes the body retain water. It is very easy to have an extra 10 pounds of water weight just due to eating foods that are high in sodium. I have to monitor my blood pressure daily and I do take a water pill daily just to rid my body of retained water.
