  1. Salt kills. sandwich has over 2,000 mg salt. 1500 is recommended limit daily. Carl’s should be ashamed of itself!
    Very unhealthy sandwich. ChefZee

    1. Not everyone is salt sensitive. Doctors recommend low salt diets only as a precaution if the person doesn’t already know for sure that they are sensitive (especially if they react with high blood pressure). But many (maybe most) will not find that salt affects their blood pressure. High salt will usually increase water retention, but drinking more water will actually help release water from the tissues. So although salt might kill YOU, I might be fine with it. Can’t generalize.

      Still, the massive amounts of salt in fast food do seem ridiculous and unneccessary. But the American diet is very high in salt anyway and eating a lot of it tends to encourage eating more of the same, so it’s an attempt to encourage repeat business. And lots of soda sales.

  2. Ugh, the sheer amount of bacon and salt looks killer, plus the nearest Hardee’s is about 20 minutes away, so I probably won’t partake, but Hardee’s breakfast is glorious, so I expect this would be good.
