    Here's a thought.

    I had vegetable skewers in teriaki sauce the other day at a Japenese restaurant, and decided to get some teriaki sauce from Tesco to do a stir-fry at home.

    I used purple-sprouted finely-chopped broccoli and fresh tuna steak, and added a couple of splashes of the sauce, stir-frying for a few minutes.

    When I tasted it, I found that the broccoli had absorbed the sauce to the extent that it was too salty, and I could only eat a bit.

    Because I am more aware of what I eat, I think I'll have to limit the use of this sauce to meat or veg that does not absorb the sauce.

    It is interesting that in the past I used to like a bit of chip with my salt, but now I am sensitive to salty tastes.

    I've always hated salt TBH, and found that most foods dont need it. The only exception to this being chippy chips which also require a lot of vinegar as well!!

    I think there is nothing worse than salty food, makes me really really thirsty as well, so if I am out for dinner and I have something salty I would normally end up drinking lots and lots of wine as well!!

    I use a lot of ground pepper as well, and since I am on CD, my soups are regularly doused in pepper!! Much nicer than the white stuff!

    Hello there Sukie,

    I must admit, I never had advice to have the nut bar with salt. I can see how it may work though - a bit like a salted peanut.

    Management is going really well so far. I'm going to update my thread a bit later, after catching up on e-mails. I am pleased that you are enjoying it!

    I notice from your tracker that you're doing really well! How are you feeling now Sukie? What size clothes are fitting now? Bet you can't believe it!

    They won't be for long, Sukie!

    I agree with all your other statements too!
