If you eat processed foods, including meat, odds are there is a fair bit of salt in them (on probably not much good nutrition.) Sauces on pickles also often have a lot of salt. I suggest that you pay attention to the nutrition labels on bought food and try to avoid those with high sodium, fat, and/or sugar contents.
There is a lot of salt in bread and cheese and breakfast cereals so try to get the ones that are low in sodium or sodium free like Puffed rice and puffed wheat which are sodium free.
French Fries and fast foods are high in sodium... maybe try baked French fries. Pizza is high sodium, certain condiments, sausage, franks, bacon, ribs, some cottage cheese and even pasta.
Canned soups & spaghetti sauce are usually high in sodium.
Alot of chicken in America is pumped with sodium to make the chicken look plumper...check the lable...If the chicken that you buy has too much sodium, soak it in water overnight to pull some of the sodium out.
Salt can enhance the insulin response to carbohydrates. This is why sooo many people crave salty foods after eating a large carb rich meal.
