In addition to keeping your sodium low, make sure your potassium intake is high enough. They have to balance each other. The problem in the U.S. is that we get too much of one and not enough of the other!

Got this information from the Diet and Nutrition message board:

There was a study done to see how much sodium was reduced by draining (36%)/or draining and rinsing(41%) canned beans. I assume the reduction would vary according to what's in your can.

I agree. It is difficult. And, our taste buds change. So anything salty is noticeable. Hang in there.

Just discovered there is lo-sodium baking powder and lo-sodium baking soda.

I try to the best I can to limit the salt but it is really difficult sometimes.

Change is good so get over it and move on

Dr. Oz says 1500 mg. a day. That is pretty restrictive in this day and age. However it is possible if one cooks from scratch on a regular basis!

I know what SP recommends. The book I just started reading on HBP says:

Recommended intake for healthy people; 2400mg or less

Goal for moderate restriction; 1800 mg
Goal for tighter restriction; 1200 mg

Average amount needed for good health; 200 mg

Is this true? What mg is best?? Try to keep it as low as possible??? Any suggestions????
