You have to watch the diet foods too. For my every-once-in-a-while treat, I went to the ice cream isle to look for no fat, low cal options. A popular diet program (which shall remain nameless) has ice cream out there, but has way more calories and fat than the regular kind. Which emphasized to me again, it's not particularly WHAT you eat, it is how much.
I found a sugar free, low fat substitute and it's way more satisfying than the cardboard they offered.
As far as sodium goes, doctors recommend no more than 2.3 gram (2300mg) a day. My ENT makes me stay under 2grams because of my Meniere's (and yes, I've gone over, it's not too easy to stay under). It's SOOOOOOO hard because I wanted to use the lean cuisines, but those things take up about half a day's worth of recommended sodium intake. Deli meats are pretty high as well.
So what my ENT says is true, go au naturale as much as possible. Anything processed and it's salt city baby. :D (That particular one isn't in Utah.)

Think of something witty for me and imagine it's written here.
