Thanks everyone for the warm welcome and the great ideas. I can't wait to use them. It's a great feeling knowing that I am finally doing something about my sodium intake.

Hi Kathy, I am so happy that you have decided to join this team. For starters, READ LABELS! The amount of sodium in processed foods is beyond belief! You can instruct the Nutrition Tracker to track the sodium in the foods you enter. Fresh herbs and seasonings like Mrs. Dash help to flavor your foods with less salt. Just making small changes at first helps. Your tastes gradually change and things you used to like, can taste too salty! You can do it.

My name is Nadine and I live in Henderson, NV

emoticon emoticon Try to have the salt in the cupboard so you have to think & try the food 1st before you consider putting any on. A little salt goes along way. I use to eat high salt in a lot of things. Then I cut down just a little @ a time. Now if I eat something w/ too much sodium in it then my gums feel icky & I feel weighed down.
Hope this helps.

Every time I rely on Jesus He never lets me down.
Faith + grace = salvation

Welcome Kathy. Just to get started, I recommend you find a substitute to keep your cravings at bay while reducing the sodium in your foods. There are a lot of really good threads here with different links to other websites to help you.

Again - welcome, glad you found us!

Hi, my name is Kathy, and I'm addicted to salt. I put salt on just about everything without even tasting it first. I friend on another team suggested I try this team also, so here I am. I am going to try my darndest to cut back drastically on my sodium intake. I know it won't be easy, but I am going to try real hard.
