  • What's the word on Salt in the primal lifestyle?

    Is salt good, bad or ugly? Should I be tracking it?

    Thanks,

    Get pink himalayan salt or celtic sea salt or another kind that is rich in trace minerals, use it as much as you like.

        Do you give your steak an ocean bath before eating?

            I don't add salt to anything I cook. Not a fan of the taste. I've never eaten anything and said "This could use more salt."

              We do need sodium.

              I have always believed that if you are eating natural, unprocessed foods, you can afford to be a little more liberal with the salt.

                I believe mark talks about this somewhere. I believe the same as RIP. Sprinkle of salt at least once a day

                  If you don't have a sensitivity to it or some kind of kidney damage use the himalyan pink salt. Not the cheap stuff combined with anti-caking agents. I put a small spoonful on most vegetables and potatoes.

                    I usually have some on avocado halves and all kinds of eggs, but that's about it.

                    The horrors of salt have been greatly exaggerated. And yes, use the good pink stuff.

                      I use the pink sea salt liberally and feel much better when I have a nice dose of salt daily. Just remember to eat plenty of potassium rich foods to keep it in balance if you have any issues with blood pressure.

                        Yes, you should track it so you can laugh when your tracking app gives you scary red numbers. Oooh no, your sodium is too high! We've basically been told a lie about salt and once you eat Primal your salt is so much lower than when eating processed food anyway so you might find you feel weak or dizzy or crampy without it.
