Janet in intense physical training and appropriate diet

 

Janet said “I cannot give up the meat,” but will eat only lean cuts, as she gives up all additional salt on her food intake, drinks plenty of water and is using a lower carbohydrate (meaning no sweats) intake that is appropriate to her workout regimen.

 

There is a method to the madness, salt is like a sponge and holds water and by cutting off the additional salt intake and drinking plenty of water you actually reduce the amount of water your body holds; which will reduce your weight quickly and safely!  This is accomplished by flushing out the salt from your body, which is a bad thing at high levels and can lead to high blood pressure.

 

Janet realizes that the constant ups and downs on the weight is not healthy and her goal is this time is not to be underweight as in the past, but to maintain a normal body mass index, which will allow her at 5 ft and 4 inches tall to weigh as much as 130 lbs and 140 lbs depending on the muscle content.  I think if she tones her body at these weights she will as beautiful as ever, be able to perform at a professional level and will disappoint nobody by her new appearance.  And most of all it is a realistic goal.

  2. Salt: Too Much of a Good Thing

    Americans eat too much salt. Eating too much salt can cause high blood pressure. High blood pressure can cause heart disease and other health problems. The Dietary Guidelines for Americans suggest reducing salt/sodium in your daily diet.

    Table salt is made up of sodium and chloride. Salt and other sodium containing ingredients are often found in processed or packaged foods. Most of the sodium in our meals comes from processed foods.

    Sodium is the part of salt that increases blood pressure. There is more sodium in salt than any other food that we eat. We eat salt because it makes food taste better. It enhances the flavor of almost everything we eat. Yet eating too much salt is dangerous.

    The body needs sodium to hold water in the blood vessels. Sodium also regulates water balance in all parts of the body. If too much water is held in the body, the amount of blood increases. If it increases too much, problems will arise.

    The increase in blood makes the heart work harder. The result can be high blood pressure. Other conditions, such as diabetes, can cause high blood pressure. The most common cause is eating too much salt/sodium. When high blood pressure is not controlled, it can lead to a heart attack, stroke or kidney disease.

    How much sodium is too much?

    Health experts recommend 1,100 – 3,300 mg of sodium per day for healthy adults. Most people eat 2,300 to 6,900 mg per day. This is too much sodium. Some people are salt/sodium sensitive. African Americans, Hispanics, and obese individuals are especially sensitive to salt.

    Controlling the salt in your daily diet can reduce the risk of high blood pressure. Check your blood pressure often. If it is high, see a doctor. High blood pressure is a reading of more than 140/85. If your blood pressure is normal, keep it that way. Exercising, eating less salt and fat, and keeping your weight down will help your blood pressure stay normal.

    Salt/sodium can hide in many foods. One teaspoon of salt contains 2,000 mg of sodium. The following suggestions can help lower salt intakes:

    Eat fewer salty snacks such as potato chips, nuts, cheese and pretzels.
    Read the “Nutrition Facts” panel on food labels to see how much sodium you are eating.

    Read the label. Look for the words, low-salt or reduced-sodium on products to replace those with high salt.
    Use fresh or frozen vegetables instead of high sodium canned
    Avoid pickled products like sauerkraut, deli meats, sausages and canned fish.

    Use herbs and spices like garlic powder, thyme, oregano, and basil to flavor food and use less salt. Season meat with lemon juice, bay leaf, crushed red pepper and rosemary. Season chicken with sage, seasoned vinegar and ginger.

    Limit the use of high-salt soy sauce, meat tenderizers, seasoned salt, and Worcestershire. Look for salt-free herb blends for cooking.
    Many people have learned to reduce salt in their diets without missing the salty taste. You can too. Cut back on salt slowly, allowing time for your tastebuds to adjust. Replace the salty taste with another flavor.
