How Does Sodium Intake Affect Body Fat?

Dr. Darden,

You have written in your books about sodium intake and bodyfat, I understand if you consume too much sodium your body holds onto water, but I am trying to understand how sodium intake affects bodyfat gain or loss…can you explain or point me in the right direction so I can understand this better

Thanks, dan

water == fat so increased sodium intake should have no bearing on fat gain or loss.
