It kind of is good to go cold turkey in the salt department. Don't buy deli meat. My doctor put me on 300 mg/day. I don't think I have made it that low. Anyway, you might like to switch to yogurt instead of cottage cheese. Greek is great. Experiment with spices. I have found a new love for curry. I probably eat more sweets now. Nutella is salt free. Hope that helps.

I have found it is best to stay away from fast food and processed food. Read the labels on everything. You will be surprised on all packaged food the exorbitant amounts of salt. I have found that just like sugar. a small amount demands more. So if I can stay away for use for 4 days to a week, then I find I do not miss it anymore. May God Bless you in your positive efforts.
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
I just started watching my sodium ! Bought a seasoning at a health food store that is called no salt ! It has all kinds of spices pepper garlic ect and i bought a new salt shaker just for that ! I miss putting the salt on foods but can live with it but i love cottage cheese and eat 1/2 cup for dinner EVERY NIGHT ! I did put my seasoning on it instead of salt . I know it is high in salt but won't give it up because most of my salt intake comes from the salt shaker . Also when i am really hungry maybe 1 or 2 times aday i get a hamburger dill slice the small ones put it on my tongue and suck on it till i have to chew it . This really helps me ! Sounds dumb but whatever works right ! I never eat over 2 and usually 1 aday . I eat toastada's about 6-12 aday but they are alot lower in sodium than the chips . God any suggestions how i can cut more sodium out ? I love tomatoes and watermellon in the summer got any suggestions how to season them ?
The Lord is my strength and i know i can do better with the Lords help. The Lord laid it on my heart to start a team called GOD ANSWERS PRAYER AND I WOULD LOVE TO HAVE ANYBODY THAT WANTS HELP TO LOSE THEIR WEIGHT TO JOIN . I KNOW I CAN'T DO THIS WITHOUT THE LORDS HELP !
