Paul C I have not added any salt to my meals for years. I dont use salt in cooking. BUT i do have salt on fish and chips. So here goes.
Removing salt from your diet once a week for a month.
Any day of the week is fine, but all yours meals should be free of added salt.

David T Sure it takes a bit of getting used to but you really don't need to add salt to anything (well OK fish and chips needs salt and vinegar as an occasional treat). Can't remember when I last added salt to cooking or other than the occasional fish and chips a meal, certainly years ago quite possibly a couple of decades ago!
Teresa H I grew up with salt going on everything from mashed potatoes (which I only have at Thanksgiving now) to watermelon and cucumbers. It's taken years to train myself not to use it so much. Now I rarely use salt, but I do on occasion so instead of just one day a week I've been doing this a few days a week so that I am reducing my salt intake. I've found I most often feel the need to use it in tomato based soup and on eggs. To make it more difficult I've made sure to include eggs/egg whites on the days I'm completely removing salt:) Doing good so far, a little over one more week to go!
Why not ask for some advice from other Challenge takers, or read some of the Challenge guides first?OK, I'll keep working at it!
