If you're addicted to salty foods, you should know that eating too much salt may make you retain water, which adds extra pounds to the scale. Studies also show that excess sodium is linked to high blood pressure, which puts you at a higher risk for heart disease. So it's a good idea to watch your daily sodium intake carefully -- just one teaspoon of salt contains 2,300mg of sodium, more than 95 percent of your daily allowance (2,400mg). Diet-friendly snacks like popcorn and pretzels can be loaded with sodium. On your next trip to the grocery store, select low-sodium foods and cooking ingredients to help you keep your daily intake lower. And replace that salt shaker on the table with your favorite herbs and spices instead!
