    Last I looked, only a small percentage of people are sensitive to salt intake by default, in regards to blood pressure. Something like 20-30%. And considering your blood pressure is normal anyway, I...

    If anything, cut carbs and increase fats if you desire more fat in your diet. Fats play too important of a role in healthy hormonal function and you don't want to mess with that at your age....

    I'll let you do the leg work. Use myfitnesspal or any online food nutrient content calculator (hell, even Google will tell you the details - just type "how many calories in "xx food") for those...
