Hi, Sharon and welcome to the group. We are trying to take an aggressive approach to identifying and improving our sodium intake and have fun doing it. Sodium is a nasty little creature for so many people. This team is so happy that you are here. Browse through the topics be sure to play the games at the bottom. Again, we are honored that you are. We can beat this thing together. Hugs, Judy (SINGINGLADY47TN)

Hello all, my name is Carolyn, and I am 51, married, mother of two teen boys, working full time. I am a many year diabetic with 100+ pounds to lose. I had a hospitalization in December, where it was identified that I also am suffering from some moderate congestive heart failure and pulmonary hypertension. I left the hospital with a big overhaul of my medication and a renewed effort to get my body in better shape.

I am not currently on sodium restrictions other than "don't add salt to your food", but we are noticing multiple pound weight gains overnight if I am not cautious with sodium. My A1C was 11.7 in the hospital, but I am definitely seeing significant improvement in that. My weight has dropped about 22 lbs since my discharge on 12/18.

One of my struggles is we eat out... ALOT. I am usually very conscientous about checking nutritional information on restaurant food before ordering, but sodium is a new concern, and carbs has to be my number one concern. I am hoping that careful tracking will help me unlock the puzzle of what foods my body can tolerate without retaining lots of fluid. Oh, and I just went back on a CPAP machine yesterday. The neurologist thinks I will see a big metabollic improvement once that is in place.

Hi, Betsy. I am Judy and had lost 240 pounds and got sick (heart issues and TIAs AKA minor strokes) With my emotional eating and certain meds (Metropalol which is a Beta Blocker and the first side effect is rapid weight gain). My total loss is now 166 pounds...hovering there. This time the weight is not coming off like I want. I know it is going to take more determination and consistency. I know my main thought now is to do this for myself but to also be an encouragement and inspiration for others. We are going to do this this time for good. I just know it. If I can be of any help, I am only a Sparkmail away. Hugs, Judy

I am Mary Ann. I am here because I visited Judy's page, and I was surprised that there was a team that helped where sodium is concerned. Judy is a leader on another team that I belong to. I have Hypertension, wide pulse pressure, a mechanical heart valve, and Aortitis which caused an aortic aneurysm that I had to have grafted. All of these issued diagnosed within the last 2.5 years. I am trying to stay away from processed foods. I need that magic number of 1500 also. Looking forward to learning more about how to reduce sodium intake. Looking forward to getting to visit with the team.

I am a heart failure patient and am becoming more sensitive to sodium as the years go on. Put on 8 pounds of fluid since yesterday. Guess I have to take this low sodium thing more seriously. Taking lasix today and spending a lot of time in the bathroom. LOL! So might as well play on Spark! Look forward to learning better ways to avoid sodium.

Ok in September My Doctor decided to put us on a low-sodium low-sugar diet. I almost laughed then I almost cried because that must mean there is no food left in the world to eat right. For the first month me and my sister started paying attention to portion sizes and actually getting all of the low salt condiments using up all the previous (too broke to throw it out) our gran helped us stock up on staples and then we trolled the net for food ideas.And we found tons of ideas, I was confused with the two main ingredients in all packaged foods off the list how could food still be possible? But we dove right in Re-started our spark accounts to track our efforts and nearly two months in I have lost 30lbs. and shes down 27lbs. Now most days I don't feel deprived at all i just have to fit what I want into my food puzzle, and when you prep everything yourself your really do eat better. Go figure gran was right home cooking is the way to go- just not her home cooking 'cause she has no idea what "low salt" means.

My flesh and my heart may fail,
but God is the strength of my heart
and my portion forever.

Hi! I'm Susan! I hadn't had a lot of problems with salt but now that I'm 44, I have developed major swelling in my feet and legs. I don't want to have to go on medication like my grandmother is so I'm going to start watching my salt intake at the request of my brother (who is a doctor). I've never been one who uses the salt shaker but I'm AMAZED how much salt is in everything I like! I'm a huge cottage cheese fan. I was looking at the sodium content and realized I'd better curb my enthusiasm for it! And soups. And everything in a box or a can! UGH! As a single person, I'm all for convenience and quick meals. Can't do that too much now with having to watch my salt intake...

Getting old stinks!!


I can do this, with God's help!!!

With God, ALL things are possible!!

Now all glory to GOD, who is able, through HIS might power at work within us, to accomplish INFINITELY more than we might ask or think!

You will probably see me reintroducing my self here because I'm always resetting my goals. But this is the first time on this team. I have a major problem with salt and I don't know if I can bring it down. I do take blood pressure meds and drink my water. But I love, I mean absolutely adore my salty foods.

Hello, Matt here. I just rebooted last week and one of the things I discovered through tracking is that my sodium intake is over 3000 almost daily. Hope to learn a few tips while here

Hi Elise!
Welcome.

I was off Spark for a couple weeks and just saw your post. I'm a heart patient too and mostly keep my sodium around 1200 mg/day or less. Browse the team forums. Some of the old posts have good suggestions. It takes a while to get used to the taste of foods not loaded with salt. Once you do though, you'll notice their own fresh flavors. Check out the posts for low sodium finds. Like Vicki suggested too, add sodium to the SparkPeople nutrition tracker. It really helps you learn what foods are high in it. I use herb mixes and no-salt seasoning instead of salt for most things. Costco has a good no-salt seasoning. Spike and Mrs. Dash are other old standbys. Sometimes I find no-salt seasoning at the Grocery Outlet for only a dollar a bottle. I only buy the ones made in USA. Good luck!

Thanks you Ironbess for the goodies and the photo comment. I had to go back on blood pressure pills. My health was more important than my pride. But at least the dosage was 1/2 of what it used to be! I will get there!

I'm new to this group. I need to reduce my daily sodium intake. I went off blood pressure pills in late October and my blood pressure is still a little higher than I would like it to be. Hoping to find some good ideas here!

Hi Krosman. You may be what my doctor calls salt sensitive. I am. As long as I keep it under around 1200 mg a day I feel okay. Go over that and I feel sluggish and puffy (I have heart failure). I'm glad you've seen some results by reducing sodium. That's great! It's amazing how much sodium is in almost everything that comes in a can or a box or a bottle. I was surprised how many low fat salad dressings are high in sodium too. It can be challenging to find low sodium foods and sometimes tiring when you have to make a lot of things from scratch. What I and others usually do is have a food prep day or half day once or twice a week where we cook a big batch of homemade soup, make a big bowl of salad to last a few days, cut up veggies for salads or soups/stews/no salt stir fries/ or mixing with scrambled egg (or egg whites or Egg Beaters), cook beans, cut up fruit and so on. Divide and freeze usable portions of things like beans and soups. If I'm not in the mood, don't have time or am too tired, I'll buy a bag of salad, some fresh, frozen or canned fruit and vegetables. Frozen is nearly as nutritious as fresh. Draining and rinsing canned veggies removes about 1/3 of sodium which helps a little.

If anyone would like more tips on sodium reduction, browse the Healthy Hearts Team forum and post questions there too.

Glad you're feeling pretty good!

Hi. I've been a member of SparkPeople for several years, but have been unable to lose even with counting calories. I am 78 years old with A-Fib so exercising is nothing I can do for now. I am 160 lb. overweight and have been for almost 40 years. I lost 110 lb in 9 months about 30 years ago,but gained 130 lb. the following 9 months. Destroyed what was left of my metabolism. I keep posting my food here but don't expect to do anything with it. A few days ago, I had a problem with my heart so decided to go on line and see what they suggest - cut back on salt. I have been eating at least 10,000 mg. salt every day, mostly in my morning oatmeal. I am supposed to have less than 2200 mg. So, I bit the bullet and started keeping track of the sodium. I've done this for 4 days and lost 5 lbs. so far. Wow. And it isn't that hard to keep track. This has to be my life from now on. Can't eat like I did before. I am also soy and sugar intolerant. Dang. But as long as I feel good - and I really do.

Rejoining team...

Hi, I'm Vicki and I'm 58 years old. Salt has always been hard for me to cut back on but due to my husbands severely damaged heart he has to cut back to no more than 2000 grams a day and 1200 calories a day. So I'm following the same plan he's doing to make it easier on both of us. Right now our goals are to eat in a much healthier fashion and to lose 60 lbs over the next 12 months.

I truly have no barriers to success; only me!!!

I fell in love with Sparkpeople the week before Thanksgiving in 2006, while I have made some progress, I didn't hold myself accountable to daily goals. It was reading the motivators stories that really got me going again! All of my patients that tried SP after I suggested it to them, met their goals!! Makes me a little silly, right?

I know sodium is not my friend in my quest to better health. I average 2800mg daily. So I have room for improvement!!

I am here to do this slowly, surely and safely; and that's what I told all of my patients that are off their medicines now or able to significantly reduce that burden on their bodies and budgets!

Hi! I'm Mariann. I've been on sparkpeople for about a year and a half and have lost 50 pounds (another 30 to go!). Last week I was diagnosed with Meniere's Disease -- after a TERRIBLE spell of dizziness and vomiting. My ENT has been tracking my hearing loss for about a year and has suspected Meniere's. Now it's confirmed. And I need to learn a new way of eating. I'm looking forward to your help and support. THANKS.

Hi everyone my name is Diane, I am married and have two grown daughters, one son-in-law, and a bouncy grandson. I have been on blood pressure medications since our first child was born and they have increased. It is time for me to do better healthwise. . I have been trying for many years to regulate my weight and food intake. There has been ups and downs with that. I am on so many BP meds that I could open my own pharmacy :-D.

I believe that much of the problem stems from my sodium intake also. So I am glad that I have found this team.

My doctor says that if I lose some of this weight that he would be able to reduce the number of pills that I take. My ultimate goal is to be med-free. I need to have a team like this to encourage me and inspire me to do what is best for my health.

I truly do look forward to our chats.

Hi and welcome, You are right that these forums will be of help. I was restricted to 1400mg almost a year ago and know how hard it is to get started. Lists of low sodium foods are hard to find and consist mostly of generalities -but they are a good start. Just enter low sodium food list into your search engine and you will find lots of ads. I like to cook so went almost exclusively for low sodium recipes and there are some really good web sites. Will make you a list in another message. I finally wanted to know the mgs in foods in the grocery store and didn't feel like wandering around reading labels to discover salt content. I found a little book on line - Amazon perhaps - LOW SODIUM FOODS by Bobbie Mostyn. The most helpful thing I have discovered so far is the DASH diet cookbook. I haven't seen the most recent one but in the first of the two editions recipes. if I am correct here, (afraid ti leave the computer - it lost the first reply I was writing to you the minute I turned my head!) the recipes in this book keep 149mg or less per portion. I'll be back - my kitchen is calling - I'm preserving fresh herbs today - glad you came - hope I can help - check out my Spark page so you will know where I am coming from if you wish -
Later Meri

Hi everyone, I had Acute Congestive Heart Failure last October, and since then have had a sodium restriction of up to 2000 mg daily. This has been very hard for me to adhere to.
I am a 64 year old woman, married with two grown daughters, the youngest, a trauma survivor, and disabled, lives with me and my husband and I am her caregiver for 59 hours a month, not much money, but every little bit helps.
Does anyone know of any list of foods, like calories, that lists sodium in different foods? I think that this group is a Godsend for me right now. I have lost over 100 pounds, went from 316 to 214' but then back up to the 230's and then back and forth within the 234-237 range. I want to start losing weight again but my body apparently has other ideas.
Thanks for listening and being there for me,
Ali. emoticon emoticon emoticon

Hi All - I'm new at this low sodium business and can use all the help I can get. I'm 78 and diagnosed with congestive heart failure. Can't begin to tell you what a change this is making in my formerly active life, but am sure you have experienced like changes. A hip and a breathing problem keeps me confined to a wheelchair so even the bed exercises I used to do are getting fewer and fewer in number. And the foods - I have been stunned to find all the sodium in all my favorite foods and frozen dinners - all gone now but issues remain - I have been on a blood thinner for a year or more so foods rich in vitamin k are very limited - that includes all of my favorite greens. Often I used to have a salad for my evening meal - now I'm doing one heck of a lot of research. Hope I'll have something to share with you on occasion (you are surely way ahead of me in this task) and that you might have suggestions for me - Be well, Meri

Newbies! Browsing the forum you'll find links and advice that will be helpful. The hardest part for me reducing sodium was the need to make a lot of things from scratch that I used to buy. Look over the post in this section titled Salt by Wayne and check topics in other of this team's forums. Also check the Heart Healthy and Healthy Hearts teams. Sodium and other nutrients can be added to the food tracker too. Some nutritionists advise throwing out the salt shaker, don't even keep it in the house. Maybe that will work for you, Linda :-)

Good luck on your journeys to better health! Feel free to post questions or message them.

I'm Linda, and I'm a salt addict! Seriously, I have major cardio-vascular problems so am learning to choose foods and cook differently but it is so hard. I have cooked with salt-laden convenience foods for over 50 years and really need help to change that, So glad I found this team because your suggestions are awesome.

Thank God in all things!

Hi everyone, I'm Anita and I'm new to the team. I'm trying to get off my BP meds and have lost 27 pounds so far. The loss has lowered my BP but I am still requiring meds. I understand that a heart healthy diet is 2 grams of sodium or less a day. I don't add salt to much of anything but I'm finding that even with my limitationof processed foods I'm still going over 2 grams! WOW is this hard. I welcome your thoughts/ suggestions. I'm 37 and it's completely ridiculous to need BP meds at my age (in my opinion). I'm otherwise healthy so this is just stupid but it is motivating me to lose the 50 extra pounds I've gained over the last 12 years working nights.

Hi. I've got heart failure, and I do my best to aim for under 1800 mg of sodium a day. I used to aim for 1500 mg, but after an episode of anesthesia-caused low blood pressure a year ago, I found I need to eat a bit more than that to keep my blood pressure high enough not to feel lightheaded.

Hi Deb,

Very glad to have you on our team, and hope you find some ideas and suggestions here that will help you cut down on salt.

I think soup is one of the biggest problems because we've become accustomed to very salty flavor in soup. You will find, though, that once you stop eating so much salt, your taste will change, and foods with high salt will start to taste nasty.

I am so glad to have found this team. I have changed my eating habits, and have been losing weight good since I started on Sept 9th. I track all my food and am eating healthier. But, sodium is the hardest one to stay lower on for me. I do rinse canned foods when I use them. I am on blood pressure meds, and I am struggling to keep my sodium intake under 1500. Any suggestions and low sodium soup recipes especially, would greatly be appreciated.

If you don't want to keep starting over, don't give up in the first place.

My name is Krissy, I am 23 and married, no kids. I have been on blood pressure medications since last December. I have been on low-sodium for about a month, and have already gone down from 4 to 3 pills a day. I am hoping with weight loss, and better diet, I will be medication-free someday!

I shop at Wal-mart so I will start looking for low sodium products. I have high blood pressure and really have to watch my sodium intake. It seems like it does not take much to make my ankles to swell up like a balloon. I got the salt out of the house but there is so much hidden in many things that I cook.

emoticon IRONBESS. I joined the team too because I have medical conditions that make me have to really watch my sodium level. I hear you that its hard. They have a thread on low sodium products and I have decided to check out Walmart as they seem to carry a lot of low sodum etc products. I have found a few myself at other stores but there seems to be a concentration at Walmart.

I've been on SP for about 6 weeks. I have cardiomyopathy (a fancy word for heart failure) and am very sensitive to sodium. I like the taste of foods without salt so not salting things is not a problem. The biggest challenges for me are finding things besides salads to eat when dining out and taking time to make everything from scratch because it seems salt is in practically everything prepared that you buy, even things you wouldn't expect.

After a quick peek through this team forum, I learned about lower sodium baking powder so thought I'd join and see what else I can learn. Hopefully I'll be able to give back to you too.

Hi my nickname is Kacey. I've been with SP for several months now and I am tracking okay on everything but sodium intake. I have discovered many new low salt products I never knew about from reading your Low Sodium Finds thread and decided I should join to see if I can find out more to help me.
I have type 2 Diabetes and Osteo Arthritis as well as being an amputee of the lower left leg and so mobility impaired. And my DH has HBP so sodium is something we have to watch. I am learning to cook a lot of my own versions of favorites I used to buy processed and I've found out that my expections of what is a good sodium goal is unrealistic (I was aiming for 0 intake) and also that I didn't know what the various terms meant. So thanks for the good start and I hope to be able to learn more and contribute at some point as well.

I have recently joined Spark and just figured out how to join this team. I have high blood pressure and it is very important that I decrease my sodium intake. The problem is I love my salt. So I had to throw the salt out. Which is great. But i still keep having a lot of sodium intake from hidden items that I would never have believed like for example bisquick mix. So this is an area I need to work on and the other is to stay away from fast food.

I have been with SparkPeople since 2006 when I learned I had Diabetes. I have been on everyday since January 2013. I learned about this team today from SparkCoach. I take meds to control my cholesterol and blood pressure. I was a big user of the salt shaker, I had to taste it. Now I don't have any salt in a shaker, only pepper and Mrs. Dash. I have Kosher salt (lower in sodium than regular or sea salt) in a small dish with an 1/8th teaspoon and I use it sometimes in my cooking. My problem is all the foods that have so much sodium in them. My limit is 1,500 mg a day per my diabetic team I saw in 2006. My problem is getting enough calories and not go over my sodium limit. I will keep updating on threads that apply to me. emoticon

Welcome aboard, and yes, it can be an eye opener when you see that the "Healthy Choice" foods (and similar brands) are anything but healthy when it comes to sodium.

Go to http://recipes.sparkpeople.com/ and enter "low sodium" in the search box and you will find many recipe ideas. Also, use the recipe calculator to get the NI on the recipes you currently have.

Some good ideas are in the low sodium food find thread as well.

Good luck and feel free to ask any question you may have

Hi All,
I'm Sheila and I'm helping my sister who has high blood pressure and congestive heart disease implement a low-sodium diet...and i also want to try it too! I never really paid much attention to low-sodium before and after a few days of searching in the grocery store, I am sort of getting a "lesson by fire" on how much sodium there is in things and how badly i have been missing the mark on my daily allowance all these years!

I look forward to seeing your good tips and being motivated by your successes!

Best,
Sheila

I know I can do it, if I stop being lazy and making excuses!

Hi Everyone, my name is Bev and I am so happy to have found this team. I am a former WW member and I was getting discouraged by my yoyo weight loss and my leader recommended that I journal for a week and bring it in for her to see. Duh, but I was caught and had to journal, not my favorite thing to do. I journaled for a week and brought it in and she immediately told me I was eating too much salt. I told her I didn't have a salt shaker in my house and had never used salt (my mother never had it in the house, so I was not brought up with salt, or so I thought). She recommended I journal for the following week and keep my sodium (because I was over 50) to 1500 mg a day. Figured that would be a piece of cake. HA. I went to Barnes and Noble and got a little book that had all the nutrients for all the foods including sodium. Well the first day, I journaled and was within my WW points but when I took out the little book (my new bible) I found I had consumed 4500 mg of sodium. I was in shock, by the end of the week I had it down to 1400-1600 mg of sodium and when I weighed in, I had lost 7 lbs. I now check every darn label and I agree with Lin on everything she wrote. I am now a "poster child" for low sodium foods. I am a bread eater, I know shame on me. But I found Sara Lee bread that for a single slice of bread is 45 Cal and 85 mg of sodium. I can still get my bread fix and keep my sodium down. For 2 slices 90 cal and 160 mg of sodium. I buy nothing packaged and when I go out I bring my "no salt" ketchup. my friends laugh at me, but I do what I have to do. I just quit WW and only doing SP and I am really getting motivated to lose the weight. So this team is just what I needed. Bev emoticon

JBailey - you asked for any easy suggestions/help re cutting back on salt. I have been told to pretty much shop only in the outer aisle of the grocery store (fruits and vegs, meat, dairy, frozen vegs, etc.) This avoids the aisles with the pre-packaged, or canned goods. Do not salt your food while cooking or at the table. I was told no processed foods (canned soups and vegs, lunch meats, bacon, ham, jerky!, pre-made meals, etc.) The pre-made meals, even the "diet" ones, are very high in salt. Usually the lite meals are lighter in fat and to make up for the cutback, they add extra salt to enhance the flavour. Soups now have lots of options for lower salt but they are still very high and one cup could be 1/4 of your daily amount. Watch out for your salads at lunch as well - salad dressings are quite high in sodium. There are lots of recipes out there for reduced salt ones though. Also, if you add croutons, and/or cheese, the salt level soars. I have better luck staying within my 1500 mg a day limit by having either 1/2 a sandwich on bread or a sandwich on a dinner roll (not a kaiser size), raw veggies, and some fruit. The salt level is usually only as high as that of the bread and the filling in the sandwich. To avoid processed deli meats, I cook a roast or a chicken or pork tenderloin once a week and use that for sandwich meat. Watch it when yiu buy meat and do not buy "seasoned" meats - they are heavily salted. Having said all that, I'm no expert and every day I have to juggle what I'm going to eat to try and keep within my limits. If you are tracking your nutrition on here, add sodium to the nutrient to be tracked (the daily amount will show at the bottom of the screen as there is no room to add more to the side of the meal charts.) Not all the foods in the bank of foods indicate the salt intake but many do. Good luck!

Hi: I'm Lin from Peterborough, ON. I have Dilated Cardiomyopathy with Congestive Heart Failure and a Mitral Valve Leak. I am on 3 diuretics daily (5-6 when in CHF) and my goal for my sodium intake is under 1500 mg per day. My nurse practitioner wants it below 1200 but I don't think I can do that. My Heart Clinic wants it below 1500 mg.

An earlier message from Carolyn mentioned that she can't take diuretics because of their low blood pressure. I'm curious as to what the 2 have to do with each other? My norm is around 110/70 but it's not unusual for it to be 80/50 and recently when I had pneumonia it went as low as 60/45. The diuretics, when I have to take more than 3 a day, affect my kidneys but there's been no mention of them affecting my BP. Do you have more information?

Hi, I'm Carolyn, and I was just diagnosed with Meniere's Disease. Usually you do a low-sodium diet and a diuretic, but my blood pressure is too low to tolerate the diuretic, so I am just going to do the low sodium diet. I've never paid attention to how much sodium is in my food (due to my low BP!), so this is definitely going to be a whole new education for me! I am supposed to stay below 1,600 mg. daily and am nervous about it!

I gave up the salt shaker when I was nineteen (now 63). I have low blood pressure and do well. My husband is on dialysis. I must track sodium, phosphorus, potassium in addition to carbs, fat, and protein. I spend time in planning meals and in tracking everything prior to shopping and/or cooking the meals. It really pays off. He is doing well.

Hi Everyone! My name is Tasha. I need to lose 100lbs. I usually give up but I am staying motivated. I have Depression, Sciatica, PTSD, Anxiety, Mood Disorder, Type 2 Diabetes, PCOS. I want to lose weight for my health and to ovulate. I take 9 pills in morning and before bed. I am 29 years old. Someday I want children. I walk to Leslie Sansone videos, ride stationary bike for 20 mins and do weights. When its nice outside I walk outside with my dog.

Hi everyone! I'm Sue from Tucson, AZ and have been keeping my salt intake to about 1000 for about a year. I feel better now then when I ate all salty things, can taste food better, too. My main problem is with sweet and salty foods, if I eat them I get off track and just keep eating. I try to stay away from popcorn, it seems to trigger my abuse of salt and sweets. Hope to learn new tricks in keeping with the program and lose a few pounds in the process.

If you are trying to cut down on salt intake, have you read the label on jerky? It's loaded with sodium. Not a good choice if you're at all serious about it.

Hi everyone: I'm Norma Jean. I'm new to Spark. As I'm getting accumulated to the website, I wondered up this team. I have high blood pressure and need to reduce my salt. I have many questions to pose to the team but at a later time.

Just wanted to introduce myself. Met my first goal from this team yesterday, but my lips still taste salty. This didn't happen in the past even when I used unlimited of salt. Why is this happening? Does anyone know?

Wake up with DETERMINATION - Go to bed with SATISFACTION!!!
