Tip: Add more salt

Have you made a New Year’s resolution to lose weight? January’s here so it may be time to take action. We’ll repeat our best weight-loss tips during the next few weeks. Like this:

Do you feel lethargic or nauseous when starting out on a low-carb diet? Do you often get a headache? The most likely reason is a lack of salt.

Salt has been unfairly demonized, so under normal circumstances there is no reason to fear it. If you have uncontrolled high blood pressure, however, then you should be a little bit more careful.

On an LCHF diet, your body retains less salt, so it is easier to become deficient. If your symptoms are alleviated within 15 minutes of drinking a glass of water with half a teaspoon salt – or a cup of bouillon – then you can be sure that it was the lack of salt that was the problem.
