I've been having some digestive issues recrntly, without much luck in terms of food intolerances, allergies etc. After lots of reading around, I'm concerned that it might be related to salt intake. Whilst I avoid adding salt to food like the plague, I did a little calculation the other day and worked out that some days this last week, my salt intake from lunch and dinner alone (ignoring breakfast, PWO and snacks) totalled 8g.
Is this level of salt excessive every day, or am I being a pansy? Could excessive salt intake be causing some of my GI disturbances? I've wondered for a long time about why I seem to have puffy-ish cheeks, ankles and thighs- could this also be due to salt intake?
