How German Scientists find out that salt food can positively affect weight loss.

Salt food addicted (lovers) may find this news very interesting, Yahoo Beauty is reporting that salt has a good effect in weight loss.

Maintaining your weight loss has become a global issue that researchers have been working on in recent times, but this finding by German Scientists, will not only open your eyes but you will have a story to tell another. 

According to April 2017 publication made by The Journal of Clinical investigation, Some German scientist found that people who eat much of salt in-away, are actually less thirsty than original view, although hungrier. It was also discovered that the more salt mic consumed, the more calories burned. Infact the consumers may need to look at rodents on how they consumes salt as in 25 percent more intake of salt just to maintain their weight.

Yahoo Beauty had an interview with these authors/experts in the United States and here is their view, it will shock you! but before you read what they have to say please be careful on the decisions take and advice you will give to salt food lovers.

The interview reads:

“It’s hard to say based on limited data,” Randy Wexler, M.D., an associate professor of family medicine at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center, tells Yahoo Beauty. “We do, at times, become surprised at what we thought we knew. However, this requires more evaluation to know if this is true.”

Erin Palinski-Wade, R.D., author of Belly Fat Diet For Dummies, explains to Yahoo Beauty that according to the study findings, high sodium intake triggered an increasing production of glucocorticoid hormones to break down fat and muscle. “And this does require energy, so it would indicate that calorie expenditure may increase with a high sodium diet,” she says. “However, increased appetite was also seen with elevated sodium intakes, so I would not recommend this strategy as a form of weight loss.”

As for the currently understood role sodium plays in weight, Wexler states that at its most basic level, increased sodium causes water retention, which leads to weight gain. “However, in general, the body reaches a steady state or if the salt load was temporary, then the individual will go through diuresis [urinate more] and weight will usually return to baseline,” he continues. “As for salt stimulating weight fluctuations through other mechanisms, it is conceivable but still not possible to say.”

Palinski-Wade adds that further research may also conclude that high-sodium diets may not lead to weight gain. “Yet in real-life settings, diets rich in sodium are usually this way due to an increased intake of processed foods,” she explains. “If you eat a diet high in sodium from fast foods, processed foods, excessive snacks, etc., you are most likely also taking in a diet rich in refined carbohydrates, saturated fats, and calories, which would cause weight gain regardless of your sodium intake.”

Both experts also agree that salt regulation remains a complex issue. Yahoo beauty added.

Should we now say salt is the excuse salt food lovers has to get weight loss? But don't you think it's one of the fastest and newest way to actually get weight loss considering the explanations above? I leave that for you!
