The best way to reduce sodium is to eat fresh or frozen and not canned. Use a salt substitute if you must when cooking, use fresh herbs, try Mrs. Dash, also maybe lemon or vinegar on greens or fish. Spice it up Hayden! And like we've been preaching read the labels.
If you have high blood pressure check with your MD before using salt substitutes. Many can cause problem's with BP meds.
The advice given here is great Hayden. Salt is my enemy! y weight can fluctuate almost 20 pounds in two days. I know that sounds like an exaggeration, but trust me. It is not. I stay away from canned foods and processed foods also. As Julianna suggested, vinegar and lemon help. I do really good for a while and then just one thing like tomato juice or regular v-8 juice will trigger an all out salt binge. That's when the fluid retention is horrendous.
Vicki makes a very valid point too. Salt substitutes are actually worse for me with my blood pressure than actual salt is.
My nutritionist says that if you do take in more sodium than you should, make sure you stay hydrated. Drink lots of water.
