Mine has been up around 1450 the last few days.

In the smaller stores I rarely find no salt items Jxnchickory. Maybe try a whole foods market or Trader Joes.

My goal is 1500, so I usually dance a jig if I'm under 2,000.
Regarding the bread thing: I make my own bread in my breadmaker now. Soooo tasty, NO sodium, and you can add all sorts of other healthy things to it (flaxseeds if you're not allergic to them like me, sunflowers seeds, or whatever).

Robin, My doctor was insistent about no coffee. I guess there is a reason for it. My BP has been dropping (at least at home).

I must have a sensitivity to caffeine, because when I drink a lot of regular coffee, my BP is much higher than it is than without the caffeine.
I just bought a salt-substitute (called Nu-Salt) that I found at the grocery store. I normally don't add salt to my food, but I've found that when making something like homemade tomato pasta sauce, it does need salt added for flavor. So, I'm using the Nu-Salt instead of salt whenever a recipe calls for salt. The Nu-Salt has absolutely no sodium...and a bonus is that it has a lot of potassium.

I am relatively new to doing the low salt thing. THANK goodness for the food tracker.
I know from years ago when I was pregnant that it doesn't take much time at all to lose your taste for salt.
www.lowsodiumcooking.com/free/Archive.htm has a bunch of good recipes. I signed up for the mailing list but haven't really had much feedback.
Some things you eat are surprisingly high. Bread! Lunchmeat.. even some of the vegetables.
My go to breakfast is now oatmeal with musselmans lite cinnamon applesauce on top. That only gives me 5 mg salt. I do salads and make my own oil and vinegar dressing. Most meats are fine (you need your protein). Nutella has no sodium listed and it great for a sweet snack. I put it on those "Coco multigrain pop cakes". O sodium.. they sell them and make them in stores. I picked up mine at Wegmans yesterday but I imagine most grocery stores sell them.
For BP my doc took me off caffeine. She also noted that when I weighed just a bit less my BP was lower.. plus walking or any exercising helps that.

I have had HBP for years, I'm only 22 and my doctor has never really discussed it with me. HBP runs in my family. I've just recently been tracking my nutrition in order to better my life through lowering my BP. Just noticed a lot of you talking about potassium and its role along with salt with BP. Its amazing that some of you have under 500mg of sodium a day! Im having trouble staying under 2300 and I'm getting frustrated. I never use a salt shaker, all my sodium counts are from the food I'm eating. I dont really know where to start. Anyone have tips for a newbie trying to watch their sodium?

1846 today...I'm trying for an average of 1300 or less each day. I had 4 slices of turkey bacon at breakfast this morning, then a cup of frozen spinach at dinner, so that's why my sodium intake was higher than I'd like.

I've only been a member of SparkPeople since Sunday...I tracked my sodium on Sunday, not being careful about how much I had, just to see how much I was consuming without being real careful to limit my intake. I always thought that I didn't eat much sodium...guess I was wrong, because that first day, I had 2175mg.

I've stopped adding any salt to my food...but, it's hard to make recipes without salt!

Today was 1271. I try to keep my sodium under 1400 mg per day, but I have lots more trouble with water retention in hot weather, so I don't always watch the salt quite so closely when the weather's cooler. It gives me an excuse to eat some favorite foods that I can't usually have. I retain water when I have too much potassium, too, and my losartan potassium blood pressure med doesn't help with that. So since I drink skimmed milk every morning, I usually go over the recommended amount.

My sodium yesterday was 1220. I've just started recently keeping track of it. For now, unless my doc recommends it, I'll aim for under 1500. I'm not worried about getting lower than that at this point.

Minimum is around 500 per spark recommendation. Doctor should advise what should be minimum for you.

I'm back on a 12-day streak of keeping my sodium under 2000, 10 of those days under 1500.

Very true that you can't get too strict with yourself, but you can plan ahead. Today I am having a higher sodium lunch so I adjusted breakfast and dinner plans. And if I do blow it one day, tomorrow brings a new day, and starts a new streak.

I try to keep my sodium, around 1200 mg, but do not always do it. We do eat out some, Even though I allow myself to splurge, even then I still try to stay below 2000. If we are so strict that we can never splurge, we actually set ourselves up to fail.

Way to go, IMLeeney! Keep spreadin' the news!!! ;-D

Sodium today: 288mg
Potassium: 2,357mg

both were a little on the low side.

This is not a journey to weight loss; it is a journey about choosing life one day at a time.

Getting better, Moonstonewolf! Way to go! I forgot to mention to you that something that might help you is to make sure that your potassium is twice as high as your sodium. So if you are consuming 1500mg of sodium a day, you should be getting 3000mg of potassium as well. The two work together at the cellular level to keep things in balance.

Danikeller, I was on lisinopril for years (as well as two other BP meds) and one day my lips swelled to gigantic proportions, I looked like Donald Duck. I went to the ER, two different nurses looked at me and said Lisinopril!! That's what did it. It's not a frequent side effect, but happens often enough for them to immediately recognize it for what it was. Be forewarned. The symptom goes away on it's own if you stop the drug, but they gave me a steroid shot "just in case". Also an epi-pen, which costs $40 and I never needed to use.

That sounds like a good hint to add a pinch of Splenda when I use Also Salt. Even though Also Salt is less metalic tasting than No Salt, I still find it needs something extra. I'll try the Splenda next time.
BTW, I aim for a maximum of 1000 mg of sodium.

I'm new to the team and pretty new to the low sodium challenge too (6 weeks). My BP has already gone from 140/90 to 116/78. Even after only 5 days on the low sodium diet my BP was 125/78. I'm still on Lisinopril, but my goal is to not have to add another med. I'm generally taking in between 1000 and 1600 mg a day (doctor said under 2,300, but after some research I decided to try for lower). At first it was hard to know what I could eat, but I'm learning a lot and stocking my pantry and fridge with some good stuff. One little trick I learned: I bought AlsoSalt garlic 'salt' because I really missed my Lawry's, and found that the taste is pretty close if I add just a pinch of splenda, especially with potatoes.

I'm new to this team, but I have found that reducing my sodium intake while increasing my potassium intake with potassium rich foods has TOTALLY unlocked the door to health for me, and I am ecstatic! I had no idea the key for which I had been searching for so long was SO SIMPLE!! Hard to put into practice sometimes, but simple in concept!!

My doc just gave me the go ahead to discontinue all b.p. meds for now, but to keep tracking of course. I haven't had normal b.p.s for YEARS, no matter what diet I was on or how much weight I had lost!!!! So I am THRILLED beyond words!

I didn't get the impact on my b.p. at 1500mg sodium as is suggested by DASH, though. So determined not to give up, I did a lot of research and found that reducing my sodium intake even further while increasing consumption of potassium rich foods was critical. I now eat between 600-1,000mg sodium a day, and aim for 2,000mg potassium as a minimum. Since doing that, in only 3 weeks I was able to go off all meds!! Woo hoo!!

My sodium for Sunday: 1007mg
My sodium for Monday: 774mg

I am in constant contact with my physician, and she approves of what I am doing. And thrilled with me for my success!

I'm also finding that on a day when my sodium is higher (from eating out and not having as many choices or whatever reason), if I can finish the day by eating a plain baked potato which has 1,000 to 1500mg of potassium, it is usually enough to counteract the effects of the higher sodium.

Potassium is like anti-sodium. It counteracts the bad effects of sodium. But we have to get it in food and not in supplements. I now track potassium here on Spark, too. A website with a partial list of high potassium foods can be found here, in case anyone would find it helpful.

Sorry to be so enthusiastic! I'm glad I found this team!

This is not a journey to weight loss; it is a journey about choosing life one day at a time.

Mary - definitely tough when eating out, so I try to plan around that when I can. Those spontaneous "let's go out" are what get me, as it did last Friday when I wound up with a little over 2000.

It isn't easy keeping the sodium under 1500. And tracking it can be something of an imprecise art as well. I don't add salt to my foods I prepare at home and try to ask for lower salt dishes at restaurants, but it is a challenge to eat low-salt meals when on the road.

1,463 today. That extra shredded cheese almost put me over my 1500 goal.

Slightly over in calories and carbs, under in fat, so I'll call it a wash. emoticon

The doctor told me to raise my sodium up but keep it under 2000...I'm still going to aim for under 1500 'cause I know that is acceptable. But, she took me off my diuretic...just praying I won't gain weight because of it.

Sodium intake today 1718....too high for my liking....I'll do better tomorrow!

I plan for 1174 today, and don't expect I'll deviate.

Schaujody, I,too, would like to be able to deduct the sodium without the bother of recalculating everything to my recipe box. I did recently discover I could 'copy' the ingredients and cooking directions in the body of the recipe, but you can't do that for the top "add an ingredient" box. I had been typing the whole thing, which is a real pain for someone who never learned to type. Though my 'hunt and peck' method has improved with practice.

When you say you'd like to add a recipe to your nutrition log, do you realize you can click on a recipe, then on the right at the bottom is a box with a calender that allows you to add that recipe to todays meal, and it will be on your favorites for all time. I'm not sure if that's what you wanted.

I wish there was a way to add a recipe for something in my nutrition log and a place to deduct the salt content. As it is I have to reenter the recipe in my recipe book in order to achieve this. Anyone have a better idea?

It seems to me you might try making homemade spaghetti sauce with no-salt-added tomato sauce, and season it with herbs and/or some Mrs. Dash flavored salt-free seasoning. I used to do this, and I just experimented, and I guess it probably came out a little different each time, but that was part of the fun. Then, if you hit on a combination that tastes really good to you, write down what you did, and share that with others.

As for the comment about ketchup, I used to use no-salt-added ketchup, and I liked that pretty well. However, now I really just do not use ketchup - or salad dressing, for that matter - at all. I believe that a big part of eliminating the salt from our diets hinges on believing that we can take control of the things we are putting in our bodies and learn to eat differently. I can eat fresh greens perfectly well without needing to add dressing to them. It's a matter of deciding to do it, and then doing it, and then your taste buds eventually get to the point where things with salt added to them taste just awful. I think it's a shame that our culture of eating, for example, extremely salty ketchup on hamburgers and fries, is so strong that our taste buds become numb, and we don't even taste the lush flavors that are naturally in plain foods without sauces and condiments on them.

Trader Joes has a low sodium marinara sauce that I like. It used to be zero sodium but that last time I bought it I noticed that it had something like 20 mg, or so - don't recall right off the top of my head but didn't stop me from buying it.

About 600 mg today. I'm lucky to have friends who are also watching their sodium intake so when we dine with them our plans don't get sabotaged.

I reaaly don't care for any tomato sauces or ketchup without sodium. I bought some no salt ketchup once by mistake and it tasted like it was loaded with sugar it was so sweet. I didn't like that at all. So I wouldn't even look for spaghetti sauce with no sodium or low sodium but that doesn't mean it's not out there, I've just never seen it.

I've been seduced today by the breakfast that was served this morning before church: it included turkey sausage, and I ate 2 links, plus pancakes. This put me at 2,172 - when I try to keep it below 1800 in the wintertime, and below 1400 during summer weather. I'm often able to keep it below 1400, but tomorrow I'll have puffy ankles.

Hi everyone!

I have not posted in a while. Super busy.

I was doing really well until Friday 2,420 and then yesterday 2,394. I just stopped paying attention! And yesterday was paella! I love that stuff!

Anyway, it was easy to get off track since I ran out of my regular food and had no good snacks around. Fail to plan. Plan to fail!

I was off the chart yesterday, mostly because I celebrated by eating a small, plain McDonald's double cheeseburger - even only eating 1/2 the bun! It was their salty cheese that did me in!

I usually can get within the 2300 most of the week. I end up blowing it a couple times a week but these past few days I just can keep it under. Just my luck when I join the team I can't seem to keep the sodium down. I didn't track on Sunday because it is hard when you go out to a breakfast buffet to figure out what you had to eat and how much. But I know I blew it, there was bacon and sausage. So when Monday came I felt I could probably track this better but I went over Monday and did again today too. I guess all I can do is try again tomorrow. I have it hard because of the family. They are so picky and I'm usually lucky if I can get my 6 year old to eat anything at all. Plus Mon,Tues, Wed & Fri are usually days I don't have time to cook a good meal for dinner at all. There's too much going on and we need quick and easy which normally involves alot of sodium. Plus I need my protein and where there is protein there is usually sodium. At least I have no problem with my potassium intake so that helps the blood pressure too.

I try to keep my sodium intake under 1000 mg but if I happen to go over once in a while, I don't sweat it. I find the new guidelines that I've recently read in the newspaper encouraging. 1500 mg for people over 51 sounds much better to me than 2300.

Hang in there is takes time to get used to things, and going out can be a sodium challenge, but you have to enjoy sometimes.

Hoping to get a few bad days - not sure how bad, just didn't log well, but hope to be back on track now that got survived another long work week.

This is not a good weekend to start. Sodium was 2566 today because we went out to eat for valentine's day weekend at an italian restaurant. Tomorrow it's out to breakfast with friends.

Just started this forum and my sodium today was 2367. Would of been a little lower but I had to have those peanut butter oreo cakesters for dessert which added 280 mg of sodium. I put 1 oreo cookie on my tracker yesterday for dessert and then forgot to eat it, so I was under for calories yeterday so I just had to have them today. Calories okay today, sodium not so okay.

Got lazy on logging Sunday so don't know exactly what, but sure I exploded past 2400 in terms of sodium, fat, calories, et al, at a super bowl party.

1122 yesterday

I use Hains Featherweight baking powder and it works great. It has no sodium and 70 mg potassium per 1/8 tsp.

1363 today. But probably off as I actulally had homemade pizza (lower sodium/fat).

I made my own bread today (second test recipe. I am definitely enjoying this baking thing emoticon ) . Honey whole wheat at less than 20mg/Na per oz. I am going to try it again using regular yeast rather than rapid rise as the bread did not rise as tall as it should. The white bread did much better at achieving height. Both were still soft and very tasty.
