Don't Be a Fast Food Junkie

Here’s another reason to stop being a fast food junkie. There’s way too much salt in all that fast food.

According to a new report from the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, better known as the CDC, about 70 percent of American adults would benefit from a low-sodium diet.

But even though we should be getting about 1,500 milligrams of salt, the report says many of us are gobbling up 3,500 milligrams of salt. Too much salt can equal high blood pressure and heart problems.

So where’s all that extra salt coming from? According to the CDC, most of it’s coming from processed and fast foods – the same stuff that can make you fat. Take it from a former fatty! I once weighed more than 200 pounds, and fast food was a great way to feed my addiction!

So read the labels on your food. Stay away from fast food, period! If you fall off the wagon, just don’t do it again.

You, and only you, have a say about what goes in your mouth. But everybody else will know if you’re putting all the wrong things in your mouth, because you will look so unhealthy (and fat!).

I broke my addiction to overeating, and you can, too.
