Feds issue new dietary guidelines For the first time, the Agriculture and Health and Human Services departments, which issue the guidelines every five years, are telling people who are 51 and older, all African-Americans and anyone suffering from hypertension, diabetes or chronic kidney disease to reduce daily sodium intake to little more than half a teaspoon.

Now he eats on alternate days (soup, salad, fish or lean meat, vegetables, nuts and occasional desserts) and only drinks water on the other days.
