Try to gradually reduce the amount of salt you ingest. I use a 1/4 teaspoon measure for my salter, and usually use only a a little of that. Try not even salting food when you cook--use more spice and herbs to flavor. It will become a habit, and you will find that your taste changes.

    Once you get used to low/no salt diets, food tastes better. I can taste the salt in a Sprite (it's the last ingredient) and can't stand the taste of a salted ham or pork. When my wife cooks a ham or pork which has been preserved in brine I have to eat it with potatoes. And that only works for the first night; after dehydrating in the fridge overnight I can't even eat it at all.

You'll get there! Just cut back little by little and in a few years, you'll pass salting anything and find that restaurants use way too much!
