you'll find an overnight "cold mango" approach to be best. Salt is such a powerful flavor for most every human, that we can detect even a teensy bit of it.
Over time, as your taste buds reacclimate to natural flavors, you'll begin to detect salty tastes in whole plant foods of which you were previously unaware. It's exciting :)
I, for one, just suddenly cut it off. For me it wasn't too hard. I feel much better with out it, and my cheeks aren't incredibly puffy anymore. If you want to gradually take it down, I think that'd be ok, too.
I quit cold turkey! :) Sorry for the meat reference! :) LOL! I don't have a hard time dropping addictions. But I do find it is easier to cheat every now and then than it is to try the gradual thing. So, I quit. If I cheat its once or twice instead of trying to gauge myself down everyday.
I cut out seaweed and salt over night. Both Freelee and I did. I did over 2 years with ZERO. We eat it on occasion now as we are so fit, we just pump out any excess the next day.
I think I'm going to have to cut back gradually, not that I use a lot to begin with but I tried absolutely none in my salad tonight and it was just unappealing. I would rather use a little salt every now and then until I can completely cut it out and be really into eating LFRV than just quit using salt at once and not want to eat anything. Day 2 complete and feeling phenomenal!
