I am now on a "no salt" added diet. I was on a low sodium diet till early in April. That meant I was limited to 2000 mgs a day. My wife and I learned to read labels, adding up the sodium. It was hard to stay at or below 2000 mgs a day, but got easier. I still follow the 2000 mgs rule, it's easier that way. I am now on a low fat, low cholesterol diet. One problem is that I have not found a no-salt bread spread to replace unsalted butter. We found a cholesterol free mayonnaise made with canola oil. It tastes good, so I didn't give up flavor for healthy. The point, Kathy is that you can do this. As for what foods to eat, look at the low sodium foods in Spark. Or ask your doctor to recommend a nutritionist. Good luck. DCS
it's not only salt, it's weight, stress and lack of exercise. We have to look at the total picture. For some, no matter what is done, meds are the only answer. We are not all alike and there are many things to consider.
