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 Lucie and emoticon to the Lowering Salt Intake team.

The biggest thing you can do is to track everything you eat - the good, the bad, and the ugly. The food tracker defaults to tracking the big 4: Calories, Carbs, Fats, and Protein, but you can add other nutrients like cholesterol and sodium, among many others. Adding sodium to my tracker was a real eye-opener for me seeing just what I was taking in, especially from those alleged "Healthy Choice" frozen entrees and similar products.

Search recipes.sparkpeople.com/browse-recip
es
.asp
and enter "low sodium" in the search and you will get a lot of great recipes from other spark members and spark staff. Also, you can enter ingredients from some of your favorite recipes in the recipe calculator and you can see the total nutritional information for that dish, and where you may want to makeover that recipe. I use this a lot as I makeover some of my favorite recipes.

Check out some of the threads on this site for some other ideas to help lower sodium intake. Post questions as you did here and you will get responses. We have all been there.
