Even more high sodium foods to avoid if you want to lose weight

  • most ready meals
  • baked beans in tomato sauce
  • bottled ketchup
  • salted butter and margarine
  • salad dressing
  • salad cream
  • mayonnaise
  • low fat mayonnaise (usually contains more salt than ordinary mayonnaise so will not help you to lose weight)
  • very low fat mayonnaise (usually contains even more salt than low fat mayonnaise, so will not help you to lose weight)
  • gravy mix
  • salted nuts
  • salted peanut butter
  • pickles
  • pickled onions
  • chutney
  • piccalilli
  • onion relish
  • tomato relish
  • pasta sauce
  • sauerkraut
  • goulash
  • most curries
  • fast food
  • anchovies
  • cottage cheese
  • blue cheese
  • processed cheese
  • most cheese is medium to high sodium
  • tinned soups
  • packet soups
  • pot noodles
  • instant mashed potato
  • Oxo cubes
  • stock cubes

To convert sodium content to salt content, multiply the sodium by 2.5

On labels, more than 0.5g of sodium (1.25g salt) per 100g is high, less than 0.2g sodium (0.5g salt) is low.
In general, if you are overweight, then to lose weight you need to be eating and drinking food that is as natural as possible - cooking fresh meat and fish, drinking plain water, rather than choosing highly processed food containing high salt levels.
It is best to avoid Diet Cokes and other diet drinks. Calorie reduction does not reduce obesity, and the chemicals these diet drinks contain are often of dubious safety. - For example, there is a lot of evidence that aspartame is not good for you.
If you are overweight or obese, and you follow the suggestions on my website, you will DEFINITELY lose weight, and you will lose it speedily and safely.
There is no need to overdo anything. - Some websites advise drinking large quantities of water. This is not a good idea. Water is very good for you but too much water is not good for you. The famous actor, Anthony Andrews, drank several litres of water during a performance of "My Fair Lady" in 2003 and had to be rushed to hospital.
