Sodium: A Cause of Overweight? Do Sodium-Rich Foods Cause Weight Gain
Does Sodium Make Us Overweight?
Sodium can make you weigh heavier on the scales but is not permanent weight gain.
The weight gain you experience is fluid gain caused by excess sodium in you diet and like most fluid gain, it is only temporary.
The recommended daily allowance (RDA) for sodium is about 2300 mg – slightly more than 1 teaspoon.
