    How much salt?

    Hi guys, I've read and reviewed The CR Way, have been counting and restricting my calories while meeting the DRI of protein and carbs, and am awaiting the delivery of several books recommended on the Calorie Restriction website (here: https://www.crsociety.org/resources/cr_guide ). My question now is how much salt should I be aiming for on a daily basis? Do you guys shoot for 100% of the US RDA (it might be a DRI I haven't much looked into it) or do you shoot for less than that? In The CR Way the McGlothins note that many CR practitioners likely keep their blood pressure low by reducing their salt intake but I wasn't sure if that meant less than the RDA/RDI/DRI or equal to the RDA/RDI/DRI. Thanks for the info guys! Max
