4. Salt Intake
This depends on your workout level. If your someone who’s not really working out all the time you need to really lower your sodium intake because its going to block your digestive system, make you retain water, and make you bloated. But if you workout a lot and you’re sweating a lot you need sodium and potassium to help your muscles rebuilding and keep your joints supple. It’s also the type of salt you use. For someone who’s trying to lose weight, no salt, no extra sauces, no butter, no olive oil. When you get rid of those things you’ll see results right away.
Extra virgin olive oil has 220 calories in 2 tablespoons. 2 tablespoons cooks one chicken breast, so if your eating a chicken breast that’s only 80 calories but your adding 2 tablespoons of olive oil, that’s 300 calories and your not even getting the gratification of tasting it because olive oil is kind of tasteless.
