It is recommended to take no more than 5-6 teaspoons of sugar for an adult a day. Make sure you read the food labels on every food or grocery (such as tomato sauce, salad dressings, condiments) you purchase. These food additives serve as a rich source of sugar and salt.

According to the American Heart Association, one should restrict salt intake to less than 1.5 gm/day to lower risk of blood pressure and heart diseases. Prepare salads using fresh fruits and veggies. This directly decreases the extra intake of salt compared to frozen or canned fruits/ veggies. Stay away from food items such as cheese, which may not taste very salty, but are a source of added sodium. Avoid adding additional salt to your salads and side dishes.
