Does your ever heart beat really fast sometimes for no apparent reason? If so, start paying close attention to what you’re eating because the answer could very well lie in your diet.

Lunch meat, potato chips, pickles, nuts, pretzels, instant noodles, French fries, popcorn, frozen and processed foods – if you consume any of these foods on a daily basis, you could easily consume more than the daily recommended intake for sodium – 2,300 mg.

Though some people can handle consuming more than 2,300 mg of sodium every day, others simply cannot. And if you’re one of those people who cannot, you’ll know it. Heart palpitations, shortness of breath, dizziness, chest pain, fainting, and even swelling of the feet and legs can all be symptoms of salt sensitivity.

Salt sensitivity tends to be more common among African Americans with more than 40 percent of Blacks living with hypertension, according to the American Heart Association.
