    Over the years I haved stopped using salt on food. No shaker on the table, don't add it when cooking.

    I still eat food that comes with salt, but I have decided that it's not needed to prepare tasty food.

    Salt rules. I never used to ever use salt until I started riding a lot. During the summer I sweat so much I need to add more salt to my diet and crave it. I use sea salt as it has other vital electrolytes other than sodium.

    A roadie I work with eats the stuff constantly and a downhiller buddy carries a little bottle with him and does the same.

    We have lunch from local restaurants brought into the office everyday, so I figure I get enough.

    i LOVE it, but doesnt it raise your blood pressure? probably only in mass quantities, but with how much I eat, i'm starting to watch it... still awesome though...
    i'll go order a large thing of fries from Carls Junior, just to find a way to enjoy rubbing the salt on my insanely cracked lips... its an awesome healer...
    i'll go out and surf for a few hours and hen i get back in, any scabs, etc. will have huge signs of healing...
    awesome stuff

    If you prepare your own food, you'll have about 1/4 of the sodium that comes in restaurant food [that is, regular restaurants - not the fancy-schmancy 4-star joints] - or even less.

    To say you won't use salt at all in your cooking - well, that's just an extreme viewpoint. [btw - try baking your own bread without any salt - no thanks!]

    However, I know a lot of people who use semi-prepared foods in their cooking [canned beans, etc] and some of these have a LOT of sodium added.

    If you cut ALL the salt out of your diet, I think you would die in less than a week.

    Balance and Knowledge!

    But, to put it in perspective - there are no salt shakers on any table I serve on and I only use a pinch-by-pinch basis of kosher.

    *also - 'salt to taste' - doesn't mean 'add salt until you taste it' - it means add salt until the other ingredients can be tasted properly...
