Use "Add A Nutrient" In Your Nutition Tracker To Track Sodium

This Sparked Me!

I use the "Add a nutrient" feature in the Nutrition Tracker to look for hidden sodium. Sodium = water retention, which equals extra pounds! The result pops up when you run your nutrition report at the end of the day.

    You hear it again and again: It is amazing how much sodium that is in everyday foods. Eating fresher, more raw foods helps! I have been tracking sodium as an awareness tool. Love Sparkpeople!

    I am about ready to take the Sodium off my Tracker just because it is almost impossible for me to stay within the limits.
