Small Tweaks Transform Your Diet

Monday, 22 March 2010 07:40 AM EDT


Forget draconian diets and obsessive calorie counting. A new study shows that it takes only very slight changes to your eating habits to dramatically improve your long-term health. British nutritionist Nicole Berberian reveals how:

1. Cut back on the number of times you shake the salt cellar or grind your salt mill. One shake delivers around one-half gram of salt every time. So if you shake once less at every evening meal, you'll save three-and-a-half a week. Most of us consume 9 grams of salt a day.

A healthy adult intake is 6 grams, so even the smallest reduction has an impact on your health. Research shows that dropping your salt intake by as much as 3 grams a day would be enough to trigger a measurable fall in blood pressure, reducing your risk of stroke by 13 percent and heart disease by 10 percent.
