In GOD We Trust Choose To Lose "If you are going to win any battle you have to do one thing. You have to make the mind run the body. Never let the body let the body tell the mind what to do. The body will always give up. It is always tired in the morning, noon and night. But the body is never tired if the mind is not tired." -General George S Patton, U.S.Army, 1912 Olympian
Hi Pat..Welcome. I'm sorry about your dx but you have taken an important step in tracking your sodium! I'm also tracking other nutrients including potassium which is proven to aid HBP. And of course, weight loss is a key component to lowering bp. If you look below your food plan on the right side are some rectangular boxes. one says.."SEE TODAYS FULL REPORT". Click there and a new page will provide you with added information about nutrients. Specifically I look for low salt and high potassium! It should automatically be included as you are a member of this group.
