Now that you’ve learned how to seek out the sodium in your diet and have been tracking your intake for the past week, you probably are surprised by how much sodium sneaks into your diet each day. Don’t worry, we are going to work to reduce this over the next few weeks!

As you learned in Week 1, the average American eats 3,500 mg of sodium each day. The American Heart Association recommends no more than 1,500 mg per day for most adults. This week you will set your daily sodium intake goal that you’d like to reach by the end of this Mini Challenge and will begin working on cutting back your intake.
