In the book, Dr. Fuhrman addresses this question by first clarifying that this is a program designed for weight loss and those who want to achieve great health.  To do that, it’s important that we don’t use excess salt, beyond what is contained in our foods naturally.  Numerous studies have connected excess salt use to heart attacks, high blood pressure, and coronary heart disease. He explains that if you really desire salt on your food, wait until your plate is full and salt your food at the table, rather than cooking with salt OR using high-sodium ingredients like ketchup and soy sauce.  This is absolutely my recommendation as well for the recipes found here!  If you can’t live without it, add a little.  None of the recipes here include salt as an ingredient.  I, for one, am not 100% and do include a little himalayan salt in some of my meals.
