Had unusual amount of stuff to eat over the holiday weekend.  Bratwurst, chips, beer, etc.  Hey, I do it too.  Lesson learned, though;  I noticed that my feet were swollen after all of that.  (TMI, I know).  Laid off the salt for a day and they went back to normal.  Got me to thinking that another thing we need to do to get back in touch with our evolutionary bodies is to knock off the salt.  It makes your body unnecessarily hang on to liquids.   Ogg didn't put salt all over his meat.  Our bodies weren't designed to handle the tons of salt that our society uses every year. 

     A theme has developed here.  Get back to walking, running, sitting, standing, eating, breathing, 'everythingelsing' like our ancestors did it.  Use some common sense with it, of course, but you get the general idea.  It's ok to eat food without seasoning it with a tablespoon of salt.  Salt is a bad habit that we've developed.  I'm as guilty (if not more so) than the next guy.  When you're 20, or 30, or maybe 40 you can get away with a lot of abuse to your body.  After that, you gotta start paying attention and quit doing stupid stuff like eating salt-laden foods, sitting on your butt, drinking beer, etc. or you WILL pay the price.  Heart disease, high blood pressure, diabetes, stroke, you name it.  All that stuff is.........PREVENTABLE.  We don't have a health care crisis in this country, we've got a 'sitting on your butt eating crap' crisis.  I'm almost 59 years old.  I want to live to at least 100.  Long way to go, and the only way to get there is by taking the necessary steps to guard your health.
