Recently reported in ScienceDaily (2010-07-28) — The more people used an interactive weight management website, the more weight loss they maintained, according to a new study.

“This study shows that if people use quality weight management websites consistently, and if they stick with their program, they are more likely to keep their weight off,” said study co-author Victor J. Stevens, PhD, co-author and senior investigator at the Kaiser Permanente Center for Health Research. “Keeping weight off is even more difficult than losing it in the first place, so the fact that so many people (in the study) were able to maintain a good portion of their weight loss is very encouraging to us.”

Health officials currently say no adult should eat more than a teaspoon of salt each day. They go on to advise that 70 percent of adults – including people with high blood pressure, all African-Americans and everyone over 40 – should actually limit their salt intake to a more restrictive two-thirds of a teaspoon.

Sodium increases the risk of high blood pressure, which is major cause of heart disease and stroke. Salt – or sodium chloride – is the main source of sodium for most people. Read more
