I’m so dang salty right now!



Recommended Posts

Ok so I’m not really...but I was wondering if you all watched your sodium intake, and if so is there a general range you try to stay in?

I don't but I probably should (I've been in maintenance for 3.5 years, btw). I'm really salt sensitive and retain Water like crazy!

I use way to much salt. I put garlic salt and pepper on everything. I shouldn't because I have high blood pressure but it's a habit.

My nutritionist wants me to keep under 1500mg a day due to my blood pressure. I find that impossible so it's usually around 1800mg, but she said at least that's me TRYING to keep it lower.

Me too! Along with the salt, pepper, garlic, I also add cayenne and smoked paprika. ON. EVERYTHING. Lol

My doc actually told me to eat more salt in the early days/months post op, as my blood pressure was pretty low and i was having semi-blackout episodes.

I rarely feel woozy anymore but my salt intake is still pretty high, I think.

P.S. My BP these days hovers near the low end of normal though.

I actually was told to ADD salt to my stuff. I seasoned everything with garlic and pepper, but never salt. I kept coming close to passing out from my blood pressure dropping and having low electrolytes.

I have low-normal blood pressure and have around 1500mg of salt on most days, though occasionally I get up to 2300.
