I like sodium free peanut butter. I use Meijer naturals. It is good on fruit or on (mock gasp) chocolate.

Nonna it is ironic. I really have to work at eating some days especially in the heat of summer. I had a long chat with my dr and a nutrtionist once. They felt a few things led to my obesity.

lack of movement ( lethargy from heat, anemia, and feet and back injuries)
stress (7 kids, 4 with special needs, bi-polar husband)
not consistently getting enough calories.

The last one shocked me. Basically they told me because I had so many kids and some so close together (3 in 3yrs) and breastfed for YEARS straight that my body was stuck in fat storing mode. And bad food choices just compounded that. And lack of consistent exercise.

Basically my body is just confused, lol. Exercise has made such a difference! And not nursing anybody (or being pregnant) for the first time in 7 years!

Donna, thanks for the tip about greek yogurt. I just tried it and it is so good! I don't eat most meats. A little ground turkey and turkey bacon. I just have never cared for it much. I have been using ezekial low sodium bread but am going to start using my bread machine again to make my own....

Fruit and fresh vegetables are low sodium, as is beef and other meats, some chicken is infused with sodium so read the labels. I bake my own bread and omit the salt, so it's low sodium. Swiss cheese is usually low in sodium, and I like plain Greek yogurt, which has 150 calories and 85mg of sodium.

I hope this is helpful.

Hi there Mom to 6! I just googled "low sodium high calorie" and got a hit that had a bunch of suggestions for snacks. Maybe Spark People has a search engine that would also do this.

My husband has had trouble gaining weight in the past, and it's ironic, you take the rules for losing weight and turn them on their head. I guess both ends of the spectrum are problematic.

Good luck with your quest!

I am struggling with getting enough calories on days I hit my low salt intake. I can keep my sodium down but when I do I am also not consuming a lot calorie dense foods. I try to utilize almonds and avocado to give my calories a boost without adding sodium. But I could use some other ideas.

Thanks!
