Use other spices in abundance instead of salt and you'll soon be accustomed to that healthier way to make your food tasty.

I also did not add salt to my food. It wasn't until I started reading labels that I found that salt was hiding in foods that I never thought had salt such as Milk. I try to limit processed foods which I used to use a lot of because they are really high in sodium. With time as your weight comes off you might be surprised at how your blood pressure is improving. emoticon

I want to thank everyone for the welcome to this team. The advice and encouragement is good and helpful. Whenever anyone said watch your sodium, my answer was but I don't add salt to anything that I cook That is with the exception of mashed potatoes. After using the trackers I know have to watch choices I am making. I have improved my sodium intake but maybe if I lose more weight the pressure will at least level out. I look forward to any other hints anyone has. Thanks again

emoticon emoticon Carefully monitoring my sodium intake, exercising regularly and losing a few pounds has kept me from needing medication. At my last checkup my doctor's comment about my blood pressure was "Beautiful!" Some people still need medication, but a good health regimen can certainly help.

emoticon I watch my sodium intake on my food tracker and have been able to lower it from 4000mg a day to just over 1500mg a day by slowly changing out what I eat. I don't like most no sodium items, but have been able to find some low sodium items that are just as tasty as what I was eating. I hope someday to get off of the medication. My blood pressure started out at 220/120 at the beginning of March. It is now down below normal with 1 medication a day. emoticon

I joined SP in June and am very happy with the site. I have had high blood pressure for many years and have been on medication. There were periods of time that I was off the medication but I don't think that will happen again. At this point my pressure is running on the high side so my medication was increased. The medication makes me very tired but I still do my exercise daily. I thought this was a good team for me to know what everyone else is doing for their pressure. Any advice is welcomed.
