Icecream and frozen treats are not my downfall, I can leave them, now chips or chocolate...I love the new 100calorie packs, we just got them here in Ontario, lots of choice. My fave are the little Oreo ones. Keeping your sodium under 3Gms is wise. I work with patients who are in chronic renal failure and they have to watch their sodium intake.

I loved jello pudding pops growing up. But last time I was in the states and looked for them I couldn't find them. They definatley don't sell them here in England. But if they sell them in Maryland might have to have some when I go for Christmas to visit my family.

Jello Pudding Pops only have 90 calories and 15 g of carb's.....I think that's pretty darn good for it being a treat!! It has less than weight watchers and i believe skinny cow! Try them out they are GREAT!!

Also those freezer pops that you freeze they aren't chocolate but they are nice and refreshing specially in the summer i believe they are ONLY 10 calories a pop!!!!

The BEST ice cream on the market that is semi-diet friendly is Skinny Cow! If you haven't tried them, find you one the next time you want a treat.

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.)

Holy crap! I looked at my lipton box (before i read this) and i was SHOCKED!!!!!!! just my soup alone takes me over the limited high! Ughh i'm so aggrevated now. I do read the labels but never paid attention to the sodium. I thought i was doing so good in my ranges then i added this darned sodium range.

Sher, You have to become a label reader. Specifically the nutrition info on the side of the package. There is an entire article on reading nutrition info in the second step of the spark program. Please look for it and have a read. Very interesting information. Most prepackaged meals, soups, dried soups, canned veg are high in sodium as it works as a preservative. Look for lower sodium versions of your favourites to substitute. Many of the soups come in lower fat and lower sodium versions. My picky eaters can't tell the difference!

Sher,
I looked at your page and saw your shared your food and exercise tracker.
I don't know if you know it or not, but the Lipton soups (and any cup of soup, ramen noodles, etc) is often VERY high in sodium. The flavoring or the flavaor packets that are used are extemely high. Soda is very high too, even if it is Diet.

Many sauces and condiments pack lots of sodium too, so watch out for that!

Do a google search of "high sodium foods" and see what you find, there are probably some good resources out there!

A high sodium intake is bad for you because it makes your kidneys work harder to maintain the "water balance" in your body. Your cells can only handle so much sodium and what they can't handle, they release into the body fluids (technically interstitial areas). The first thing this will cause is usually swelling, often in the legs and arms.
High sodium + extra weight almost always = high blood pressure. High blood pressure, in turn, can lead to strokes, kidney problems and heart problems. Untreated High blood pressure is almost always a cause of CHF: Congestive Heart failure.

Hope this helps some!

I've really been trying to watch my sodium intake lately. I couldn't believe how much I was eating, but now I realize it is because I eat a lot of low fat and prepackaged foods.

I am confident that the path I journey on today leads me in the best direction for my soul's progress. I do not worry about tomorrow. I choose to focus on today's journey.

Also watch out for sodium content on the low fat/fat free versions of foods. When they remove fat it removes some flavour so to kick it up they will add sodium! Sodium can cause water retention in some of us.

I like the Country Crock light too, for cooking. Have you tried Smart Balance? It's not bad!
I use the butter spray when I'm using it for flavoring, since it has ZERO calories.

Some things can be good for you though and just have more calories. Peanut butter isn't really bad for you, it just has a high caloric & fat content, so it needs to be used in moderation.

It's sad that I know all of these things and actually studied them in college, but haven't been applying them to my life!

I'm glad to know that about I can't believe it's not butter. I almost picked some up the other day on impulse and didn't. I just use the regular...I don't use much at all anyway. The only thing I put it on is french rolls, but I can't have them anyway..lol

Ok so i was a member of a group on myspace eating healthy or something or another and they swear by certain "healthy" foods and natural foods.

Anyway i checked out 2 of the items verses what i usually buy the "regular foods" and they were both way higher! ......Well i unfortunatly bought the I Can't Believe It's Not Butter. BIG mistake it has so much more of EVERYTHING than Country Crock calcium. And i am so happy i didn't pick up the peanut butter they suggested i'll stick w/my Skippy peanut butter!
