    Default Low-Sodium Diet

    Greetings, comrades. I went to the doctor yesterday and my Blood Pressure was 173 over 120, it's never been that high before. Last time it was checked it was about 124 over 60. Since I've left the national guard a year ago I've gained 20 pounds and have ate high-sodium foods. Anyways, I'm inquiring about low-sodium foods that anyone knows about. I'm not talking about fruits and veggies because I know they're low, I'm talking about meat.

    A good way to keep your sodium low is to have more potassium in your diet, as well as drinking more water.

    All I know is that lunch meats, premade meals.. etc, along with some types of bread are high in sodium.

    Foods rich in potassium include parsley, dried apricots, dried milk, chocolate, various nuts (especially almonds and pistachios), potatoes, bamboo shoots, bananas, avocados, soybeans, and bran, although it is also present in sufficient quantities in most fruits, vegetables, meat and fish.

    Low Sodium Foods

    1-150 mg per serving
    Beer, wine, coffee, tea
    Fruit drinks, soda pop, Kool-Aid
    Breads, white, whole grain
    Cakes, cookies, crepes, doughnuts
    Cereals: cooked, granola, puffed rice, puffed wheat, Shredded Wheat
    Crackers: graham, low salt, melba toast
    Pasta: macaroni, noodles, spaghetti, rice
    Butter, margarine, oil
    Horseradish, mustard, spices, herbs, sugar, syrup, Tabasco, vinegar
    Cheeses: cream, Monterey, Mozzarella, Ricotta, low salt types

    Ice cream, sherbet
    Milk

    All fresh fruits and vegetables
    Frozen fruits and vegetables (without sauces)

    So it seems just cut out the processed crap, don't put too much salt on your food (use other flavourings - fresh herbs, spices, pepper etc.), have lots of fresh fruit, veg, non-processed meats and wholegrains/wholemeal food and you'll be fine.

    Reduce your salt intake, lose weight and do more exercise.
