ElizabethEl's Journal, 24 April 2013

Well, going down to 1500mg of sodium a day on the DASH diet seems to have the added benefit of dropping weight. We'll see next week how much is just water. I suspect it's because it makes it impossible to eat any pre-packaged foods - even canned soup! SOOOO much sodium in foods these days. So it's not unlike Atkins except I am enjoying the fruits daily as well as my favorite snack: dried apricots and unsalted almonds. And lower in fat than Atkins but appetite seems to be in check. Haven't had the energy to log my meals but will begin that to make sure I'm getting enough calories to heal from my health adventure.

Beautiful sunny day here in Maryland - getting up to 77 degrees!

Enjoy your day - it's a gift.
