If you're used to sprinkling salt on your supper, it might be time to remove temptation altogether. According to the AHA, adding salt at the table doesn't really have much of a positive effect on your meal, since salt enhances the flavors of a dish best while it's cooking. Take the salt off the table and hide it in a cabinet with the rest of your spices. If you can't quit cold turkey, ask your doctor if you can use a salt substitute. These low-sodium blends will add some zest to your food without upping your salt intake. If your salt shaker is like a best friend, try tricking your mind by dumping out the salt and add a substitute to the container. That way, you still have the familiar shaker, but skip the salt.
