Since I've switched to cooking most of my own food, my sodium intake has dropped dramatically. In fact, about a year ago I had a conversation with my doctor about whether there was a minimum amount of sodium that I needed each day.

"Yeah, but you'll never get that low."

"Umm, I'm eating about 500-700mg of sodium per day right now."

"Wow, really? That's surprising, but it's not too low."

If you've suddenly cut your sodium intake you're probably shedding water at a prodigious rate.

IT really is a hour by hour deal for me.
Take the hours down to the minutes. Take the minutes down to the present moment. You can only make a decision in the present moment. And we are all moving forward in the present moment together with you.

Thanks for the support, it's difficult when you feel you're doing it alone.
