    New Community Design

    Thinking about doing a refresh design for Talk Jesus community here, possibly using a different software platform as well to replace the current. It'll still remain a "forum" software nonetheless. Please vote at this poll and share your feedback.

    Facing Our Loneliness

    Everyone has lonely moments in life, but when loneliness begins to define our lives, it causes serious problems. We compromise our principles to try to fill the emotional emptiness. We choose behavior that harms our health, relationships, and finances. The consequences can be devastating. Learn how God desires to fulfill every longing you have for meaningful connection.

Low salt, Low sugar, Low fat diet

Discussion in 'Health & Fitness' started by Trax, Apr 18, 2015.

  1. That's what my doctor told me. I really don't know what to eat. There seems to
    either fat, or salt, or sugar in stuff. And the labels trick you. They state a low content
    but in the top corner they say "serving size 3.5". I've cut the soft drinks down to one
    16 oz a day, rather than 4 or 5. That is a ton of sugar gone. I had to cut beef and pork out
    because it runs my blood pressure up. I've been buying these frozen vegs and microwaving them
    in the package. Its the packages that have the light seasoning in them.

    If anyone has any suggestions on what to eat, i'm all ears (or eyes). If I have to follow a recipe forget it.
    I need something I can throw in the microwave.
     
  2. It's a common misconception that salt is bad. Salt is not bad. Too much salt, and the wrong kind of salt may be bad.

    I will try and find some articles to support the claim I made above later today, but I must be going for now.

    I am not a doctor, please don't try and sue me.

    Blessings,

    Travis
     
  3. May I ask @Trax is your diet advised for any particular medical condition?
     
  4. This article was interesting for me to read.

    Is Salt As Bad For Blood Pressure As Previously Thought? | Prevention

    One thing that I've found useful as a starting point for easy cooking is those 1 minute rice packets, Uncle Bens ready rice I think it is.

    That and some grilled chicken breast and then some frozen veggies make a good meal.

    A lot of the veggies in the freezer section seem to come in the microwave packages already, where you can just throw them in for 5 minutes and they are ready to go. Called Steamers or something like that. But you mentioned that already didn't you.

    Hope that's helpful
