Title says it all. Do you avoid eating too much sodium chloride? Vice-versa? Or do you just not care about maintaining a healthy electrolyte balance?

The only foods I don't salt are Italian and Mexican food. Asian food I use soy sauce, which I think is even saltier than regular table salt.

I cook with plenty of salt. Garlic salt in lots of stuff I make. It's hard to make something tasty or even savory without salt. I'd say I'm pretty salty

Not sure how to vote because I don't care about my salt intake, but I also never put salt on any of my food (except eggs), but I don't avoid it intentionally.

I just never find myself thinking "This needs more salt" while eating.

My dad probably has the single worst salt intake ever. I swear he adds a ridiculous amount of salt to his beer and it's kind of gross.

Joshua Garcia yea I've seen people add shitloads of beer salt to their drinks. Especially to Dos Equis. 
Perhaps not so coincidentally, that's exactly what he drinks.

yes I know what you mean, there are times when I feel like my salt levels are rising. I'll usually eat a multivitamin with plenty of potassium, magnesium, and calcium to help balance the levels out so that I don't reach the point of saltiness. This might help you out too.

lmao wow it really is no coincidence. large amounts of salt must be really good with that beer. I might try it one day.

That's because Mexican beer sucks. Almost all the Mexican beers are drank with salt to help....to cover the flavor, I think.

I season stuff with salt when cooking, put salt on chips, tomatoes to bring out the flavour, roast potatoes and plain salted crisps are probably my favourite, i don't like salted peanuts much though or pretzels 
#16
I like salty food, but I don't put additional salt on many things.
Death to Ovation haters!
#17
I mean if youre asking if I salt my food after its prepared then very rarely. When I cook im pretty generous with seasoning though.


Although I do like tossing a bit of extra salt and vinegar on fries.

I use salt when cooking, enough to bring enhance the flavor of the food, I don't salt food when it is on my plate unless it is particulary bland. I use black pepper more than any other seasoning at the table fresh cracked from a peppercorn grinder.

I put salt on potato-based foodstuffs if they haven't already been salted

Otherwise I don't salt anything. Most stuff has already been salted at some point so there's no need. 
I have nothing important to say

Am I the only guy who read the thread title and thought this was about how "blunt" you are with people? Ie. how un-sugar-coated your communications with other human beings are?

But to answer the actual question, I like a lot of salt, but I have to be careful because it DOES dehydrate you, and I get kidney stones, and after 2 surgeries and knowing what it's like to be pissing the contents of a beach after a bloodbath war out of my dick, I don't ever want to go through that again, so I'm trying to reduce my intake and keep it at a healthy level.

On a scale from Jewish food to the Dead Sea, I'm a saltine.

But for real I put as much salt as I need in food, I don't really care about my intake because I know I'm not excessive anyway.

Yeah the shitty clear or green bottles allow the creation of sulfuric compounds and salt kills it. Only respectable mexican beers are in dark bottles, such as negra modelo

My sodium intake is higher than recommended but my blood pressure is pathologically low. I don't think I could possibly want to eat more salty stuff than I do now so I'm trying to drink Gatorade instead of water whenever I remember.

Negra modelo is the only mexican beer I really like and that's probably why. All the other ones have a bad aftertaste. Corona is barely tolerable with a lime.


I don't really care about salt unless something is too salty. I never add it to anything, except maybe a little bit when I'm cooking. Usually when I'm cooking I use tony chachere's which is a little salty anyway so I don't add more.
