Sodium Shocker

I never put salt on my food and don't really eat pre packed foods I cook fresh meat, potatoes and yep I eat Heinz Baked beans lol.

I have joined a web site called  L iv i n g s t r o n g . c o m and there they have a daily plate section you fill in what you eat and drink, they work out the calories and the protein, carbs, sugar, fibre, cholesterol and sodium levels - I have been shocked to see that for instance:

2 slices of white bread
a little light flora spread
ketchup
2 pancakes
1 medium baked potatoe
3oz cheese
half tin baked beans

Takes me to: 151.47% of my daily allowance of sodium
100.8% of my daily allowance of carbs
101.32 % of my daily allowance of protein.

WOW....

You should all try it and see what values you are eating - it sure was an eye opener to me...

It also works out what cals you should be consuming to get the weight loss you want

Works out the cals you burn exercising and deducts them from your cal allowance...

It's a great site... very helpful.
