Message for Stephen Nolan of BBC Radio 5: you will easily lose excess weight if you cut down on salt and salty food.

I listened to a bit of the Stephen Nolan Show last night on BBC Radio 5. It was discussion about obesity again and what to do about it. Unfortunately the 'expert' advice yet again consisted of pushing the calorie myth, i.e. that eating more calories than your body expends in energy will cause weight gain, and eating fewer than this will result in obesity reduction...)o: - But this advice is based on false premisses. Stephen will not become less obese by cutting calories or by going to a gym and doing exercises. He will lose weight if he reduces his intake of sodium.

Obesity is NOT caused by overeating. It is caused by fluid retention, frequently because of taking prescribed medications, especially steroids such as prednisolone, prednisone and HRT, and anti-depressants such as amitriptyline. (When doctors prescribe drugs that cause sodium retention and water retention they should warn the patient not to eat salt, or food containing salt, while taking the medication. When they do not give this warning, the inevitable consequence is considerable weight gain.)

Poor Stephen Nolan! - He says he weighs 20 stone and is morbidly obese. I have heard him say on other occasions, however, that he likes salty food and eats a lot of it. - If he were to avoid salt and salty food he would easily and rapidly lose a lot of his excess weight because it is the sodium in the salt he eats that is holding excess water (fluid retention) in his body and making him obese. - If you see Stephen, tell 'im!

Lose weight, reduce your risk of most cancers, high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes, heart disease, heart attack, vascular dementia, stroke, osteopenia, osteoporosis, hypercholesterolaemia, depression, liver and kidney problems, and improve your health in many other ways without drugs, hunger or expense by eating less salt! - Try it! - You will feel so much better!
