Follow Friday: Project Big Life Sodium Calculator

1 Comment

A University of Toronto Dietitian has developed an online Sodium Calculator to help you estimate your daily sodium intake. This isn’t a precise measure of your sodium intake but it may serve as an eye opener to many people; especially those who don’t prepare many meals at home. Apparently I consume a smug 800 mg of sodium a day, 37% of which comes from baked goods.

If you’re interested in more closely tracking your sodium intake you may want to check-out something like the app Sodium 101.

  1. Mine came out as 900mg, with 27% of intake from eating out. I believe that the extra salt is from restaurant meals, but I’d be surprised if I only consumed an average of 900mg, even if I am actively trying to reduce sodium intake.
