From Day 1, I decided to track my Sodium intake. And from Day 1 I have exceeded the suggested amount by HUNDREDS and just as often THOUSANDS!
I grew up with and enjoy very salty, flavorful food. As an adult I reduced my intake but not by enough it would seem. I'm afraid that if I reduce it more, I won't enjoy the food I've been eating which could possibly sabotage my journey. But if I don't reduce it at all, I'm not moving towards the healthy lifestyle that I am working so hard for.
Has anyone else had this issue? Are there alternatives to sodium that won't leave my food flavorless and bland? A different combination of spices perhaps? I don't want to move on to Step 2 until I get this under control.
