Thoughts on Salt and Sodium

Posted by Trainer Aaron on September 17, 2010


As a Trainer and Nutritionist I get this question a lot: “how much sodium should I be taking in each day?” While I admire people’s curiosity and their attempts to do things right, my answer is often that I don’t count sodium, nor do I recommend that my clients watch their sodium intake. My honest opinion is that there’s no point. It’s not to say that eating a ton of salt is a good thing, but I believe this is a case of not being able to see the forest for the trees. It’s looking too closely at something, that simply is one of the symptoms of a crapy diet. A good diet, is not one that is low in sodium, but one in which sodium is not an issue. 10,000 years ago people didn’t go around watching their sodium intake. In fact, many people couldn’t even get enough salt.

Drink More Water, Lose More Weight

Posted by Trainer Aaron on August 30, 2010


Most people are walking around in a perpetual state of dehydration. Today we are told by marketing that when we’re thirsty, we should have a soda, or a “sports drink” or some type of vitamin-water drink. All of these are options that merely 100 years ago would have been almost impossible to find. In some cases we are told that these are even better for us than water. Guess what, that’s not possible.

Water is what our bodies are designed to drink. 5000 years ago water, and maybe a little wine every now and again, would have been our only real options. Our bodies aren’t meant to consume these sugary imposters. When is the last time that you drank real, pure water? How often do you consume soda, lemonaide, ice tea, coffee, or some other sweetened beverage, including the “diet” ones?

Water serves a number of purposes within the body. It helps Read the rest of this entry »
