First step is to remove the saltshaker from the table. Next avoid the obvious salty foods like chips, soy sauce, canned fish, canned soups, bread, and certain cheeses. Increase your intake of fresh fruits and vegetables, healthy fats, and lean proteins. Avoid packaged, processed foods. Diet sodas also contain sodium. Fried foods often contain large amounts of sodium, as does Chinese and Japanese food. Most restaurant food is over salted. Cook more from scratch, read labels, and limit sodium to less than 2000 mg. per day.
