GRRRRRR
I just cannot get and stay with the program. Staying with any kind of a diet seems to be impossible for me! I start off good but slowly go back to my old ways every time. I know I need to lose weight and most important I need to STAY away from SALT! but I am addicted to salt I guess.

I struggle with meal planning also. I don't like to call. It diet but hey whatever it's called. I just want to have good sugars. I've b even really concentrating on this and I am just TAKING IT ONE DAY AT A TIME. Sounds so cliche but it's working for me. Whet else it working is that I'm making more frequent docs appts or nurse appts which keeps me more accountable. Good luck!

You can buy all sorts of herbal substitutes for salt. I find salt dulls the flavour of real food, so I use very little. Falling off the wagon with regard to diet is much harder and something I struggle with too. I don't call it diet either, I call it low carbing and try to follow either Atkins or Bernstein meal plans. There is a Bernstein group on TuD which you may find will help you with eating problems. Find it at: http://www.tudiabetes.org/group/drbernstein

I have kidney problems and salt restriction is crucial. But oh so very hard. Restaurant eating is nearly impossible and I used to socialize a lot over restaurant meals - book club, knitting group, etc.
I am now retired so have time to cook things from scratch, which makes a big difference but is a drag. How I'd love the convenience of getting a cheeseburger at Mickey Dee's.
There are several great websites that offer a host of sodium-free recipes. My favorite is www.sodiumgirl.com

1.Throw out the salt shaker
2. Record your sodium intake to help make you accountable.
3.Use herbs to put some sparkle in your plate
make a new game plan, that fits you.
Good luck. Nancy
