How to Decrease Sodium in My Diet?

Here are some tips for you:

Read food labels: If possible, choose low-sodium alternatives of the foods and beverages you normally buy.

  • Eat fewer processed foods: That is because salt is added during processing.
  • Don’t add salt: Just 1 level teaspoon of salt has 2,300 mg of sodium. You can use herbs or spices to add flavor to your food.
  • Ease into it: If you don’t feel you can drastically reduce the sodium in your diet suddenly, cut back gradually. Your diet or palate can adjust over time.
