Here's the good news: if you're new to low-sodium living, IT GETS BETTER. It takes a couple of months for your palate to adjust to the lack of salt. Once it does, you'll be surprised at how salty your old food tastes. I was just at Costco and had a small sample of a cracker with some artichoke dip on it. I've eaten those crackers before and loved them. But this time they tasted SO salty to me, it was like licking crunchy salt.
So hang in there. Whether you're doing Pritikin or The Dash or something else, you'll get used to it. :)
I found it an easy read, not boring as most health guides seem to be, this book kept my interest and made it look simple to lead a healthy life style.
I recommend it to anyone who wants to live longer and not fear heart attacks.
