Low Sodium Diet

How to follow low sodium diet*

The following is recommended for followers of low sodium diet: Eat fewer processed foods such as potato chips, frozen dinners and cured meats. Choose foods labeled "low sodium" or "reduced sodium." Don't add salt to your food. Instead, use herbs and spices to flavor foods. Eat more unprocessed, fresh foods, such as fresh fruits, vegetables, lean meats, poultry, fish and unprocessed grains. Do not drink water from water softeners. Check every "Nutritional Information" label before you buy or use a product. Note sodium and portion size information. Get foods at markets specialized in low sodium foods.
