I only track it after I've eaten. In general try to avoid the salty stuff because I am in danger of developing high bp but I'm not very good about counting it up before i consume.

I've been trying to keep better track of it because I know for sure I'm way, way over what I should be getting. I went to see a dietitian last Friday and that was a HUGE help to me just to get focused and have a better idea of what I needed on more of a percentage basis so that no matter what my calorie range was, I know how much of it should be protein, carbs, etc. and I was shocked at how low the sodium should be!

I have started tracking my salt and am appalled by how much I get some days when I am eating processed foods....

I don't track salt either, but I know I have too much of it...I am a salt person for sure! I am with Willowwren...I use my rings as a "salt meter"...when they get snug I know I need to cut back, if they fit comfortably, I am in a good range.

I don't really add a lot of salt to things...by big thing is with processed meals like Healthy Choice and Smart Ones. I never use to really pay attention...but I'm really starting to learn how imporant it is.

I don't really track my salt intake and I am one that probably should. I have cut down quite a bit but I know that I am still consuming WAY more than I should. I like a lot of condiments for my foods but I have been eating a lot less of those types of foods lately. I would be curious as to how much I do consume.

I do know that when I eat a LOT more I am really bloated and my wedding ring does not fit as well. That is the best judge for me when trying to determine my water retention at any given time. It really makes the difference for me.

I don't track salt intake but I've stopped using it a long time ago, oh don't get me wrong I'll put a few sprinkles in my oatmeal and some in water to boil potatoes! LOL! But anywho I was the queen of salting things I'd put salt on my ketchup & ff's kinda thing but that was years ago. I do buy boxed meals[for lunch at work] but I look for the lowest sodium ones I can find. It's in everything so I don't add to it.

Hey kids it's me Linda46,

don't track it but i can tell the difference when i'm eating processed foods to when i'm eating 'clean'. I can put on 2-3 lbs in retention when my salt and fat intake is high for a couple of days. That impacts on my motivation so I try to avoid.

I don't track my salt intake. I generally don't add salt to most of my food. I also don't eat much processed food, so my sodium tends to be on the low side.
Also my blood pressure has always been right on target so I don't think that there is a real need for me to track my salt intake.

How important is everyone finding tracking your salt intake to be. What kind of difference is it making in your diet? emoticon
