Really watch your fluid intake- did they tell you how much fluid per day you could have? I am allowed 2000 ML per day- it is hard. Also, watch all sodium that you have in a day. Almost everything has sodium. UGH It is hard figuring out what to cook- and to adjust. They told me 2000 mg sodium or less per day I is hard, but it all helps. Hugs to you! If you need anything or pointers, let me know. You can do this!

This is not sound like a diet I want to be on at all. But I do have a friend that told me that when she was diagnosed she decided instead of dieting and taking everything out she was going to do that fasting where she could only eat between 7:00 and 3:00 she's lost quite a bit of weight she's lost like 75 lb and her blood pressure and stuff definitely went down at all her numbers are better especially from just the weight loss aspect of it and she's moving around a little bit better so I thought I'd try that one
