I have started reading the labels since joining sparkpeople and keeping track on my nutritional page. I will have to cook more since prepared food has so much salt in them. I wish you well and remember life has peaks and valleys. Positive thoughts do work if you believe.
As several others have said, read labels. That's the best way to make sure that you buy the brands that have the lowest sodium. These days there are a few brands that are sodium free, but they are sometimes very hard to find.
There was much rejoicing!
to the team! in lowering your sodium! There are tons of great posts on here regarding helpful hints on lowering sodium intake.
The biggest thing is to read, read, read the labels and track your food in the food tracker, prior to eating and it should help.
Best wishes on your new lifestyle adventure.

I try to look over old posts just to review the good tips everyone gives. I tend to forget sometimes in my old age!
Slow but will get there!
This one lady on here is so very helpful. I use HerbOX which is a sodium free broth. I found it @ a local grocery store. It was 1.99 for 8 packets. I also use low sodium soup & can tomato. The other thing she suggested is rinse off the canned tomatoes w/ hot running water (that is how I cut down on the fat.) Welcome to the the team.
P.S. She gave me all the suggests except the one about fat. I got that out of a book.

Thank you for the welcome and the tips. I have to start cooking more at home. I have been slacking off preparing my own meals. Again tnanks to everyone for the welcome.
Welcome to the team. Use the Nutrition Tracker and check the sodium content on everything that you eat. It can be a real wakeup call when you see how high the salt content is in some foods that you would not suspect. Gradually, your taste for salt will lessen.

Welcome to the team. Hope to hear from you on the message board too.
Slow but will get there!
and to the team. Glad that you could join us.
You are doing great with the exercise. Now to lower sodium.
1. Read labels on everything
2. Avoid procesed foods, canned foods, and to a lesser extent, frozen foods.
3. East fresh fruits and veggies where ever possible.
4. Cook at home so you know what is in the foods you eat.
If you haveany questions, don't hesitate to ask. There is always someone around to answer or point you in the right direction.
I wish you much success on your journey.

I joined sparkpeople and found your team. My big problem is keeping the sodium intake down. I walk 5 times a week on a treadmill and weight lift with a trainer 2 times a week. Happy to hear from team members
