If you reduce salt intake the more weight you will be able to lose. The healthier your diet is, the more weight you will lose quicker. Start changing your diet now because this is vital to losing weight and keeping it off without difficulty. This will give your body enough time to digest the food that you have eaten before you sleep and also prevents you from having all that excess food being turned into stored energy over night. Once you've lost weight, exercise is even more important — it's what helps keep the weight off.
