The effects of sodium intake depend on one’s diet. On a high carb diet (like the so-called healthy food pyramid) one retains excess sodium, hence the warnings to restrict sodium intake. On a lower carb diet this is not an issue.

This is another Atkins myth. The harmful effects of excess sodium intake do not vary by diet. Carbohydrate consumption is not a factor.

You are spot on correct. I do not eat carbs (sub 30g per day), and need to supplement my sodium daily by consuming broth made from bullion cubes.
