Hi again,

If you are still trying to understand where the sodium is coming from, the Nutrition Tracker can help. At the bottom of that page there is a button called "See Today's Full Report". When you press it, it will give you a detailed listing of your nutrients including sodium. This will tell you what the biggest sources of sodium are.

It takes some effort but it is manageable.

Cheers,
Catherine

Thanks for your reply. The problem with me is that I never cook with salt or use the salt shaker, but the Specialist says I have to also cut out the salt in processed food. So that is what I am aiming to do. Bit of a struggle I think.

Thankyou for replying. I am going shopping this morning which will be interesting. But I think like you said it is better to prepare everything myself. Anyway I am looking forward to losing weight so I will do anything I have to.

I only buy items that have 10% or less sodium. I buy very few processed foods. Clean eat & make your own meals from scratch. Try to buy organic fruits and veggies & the best organic grass fed cuts of meat. Places like Trader Joe's seem to have a lot of low sodium items. I would avoid buying soup & make it at home.

Keep putting one foot in front of the other. Keep moving forward & don't look look back.

Welcome dear! You've put a very difficult question on the very start. Hope other teamsters could advise you on where you could buy such food. Unfortunately my experience shows that the ONLY way is to prepare it yourself using products both on the market...

Never say never

I found that cutting out the processed foods such as lunch meat helped to lower the sodium intake. When you track your food, you can see where the sodium is coming from. Lots of people on this site rinse there canned veggies too.

Almost all of the salt we get comes from canned/processed/convenience/fast food not the salt shaker. The previous advice on FRESH fruit and veggies is the way to go. Also avoid the convenience stuff like Hamburger Helper etc. Again, they are loaded with salt.

It may take you a bit of time to make the change but it does not need to be time consuming. Check out the SparkRecipe part of the site and the Advanced Search. There you can select the amount of time that you are willing to spend as one of the criteria for finding recipes.

Cheers,

I also have to lose weight, get my blood pressure and cholesterol levels down too. Foods would be fruits and vegetables to name a couple and at the produce section of the grocery store. Don't forget you need to have a certain amount of salt in your diet so maybe you could do the challenge of not to use the salt shaker. You could use herbs and other spices. Hope this helps. emoticon

I am so glad I found this site as well. My specialist tells me I have to lose weight and also cut out all salt. Where do you buy food with no salt?
