After a routine check-up my doctor tells me my kidney function is not where it should be and that my blood pressure is too high. She sent me home and told me to restrict my sodium and lose weight and come back to see if my numbers improved. I obsessed over salty food so I knew I had plenty of room for improvement . When I started tracking my food and seeing my intake I was surprised to see that I easily ingested a out triple the sodium that is recommended.
