The winner is: High fat and high salt diet

In the latest study out of the University of Iowa, scientists found that adding high salt to a high-fat diet actually prevented weight gain in mice. In fact, mice fed a low salt/high fat diet gained the most weight out of several test groups and only the high salt/high fat diet held their own – actually mimicking the control group fed a normal mouse-chow diet. What the scientists surmised from their testing and observation was that varying levels of salt had a significant effect on both digestive efficiency and the amount of fat absorbed by the body. This goes to show you that you should literally take everything about diet you hear from mainstream with a grain of salt. Heck, make it two grains of salt thrown in with some healthy fats – just make sure you use quality sea salt and not the demineralized, twice-baked, iodized, free-flowing crap. Oh, and don’t think this means you can ‘frenzy-feed from the drive-thru menu’ your way into smaller pants because that kind of fatty diet will only plump you up and increase your risk for cardiovascular disease.

Healthy fat plus healthy salt adds into a healthy diet.
