    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Hi Jackie,

    I don't come over on this board very often - spend most of my time on the 50-100 lb board - but I just wanted to suggest some foods for you: small portions of lean protein (fish, chicken, certain cuts of pork or beef) broiled or baked; lots of veggies, roasted or steamed (I roast my veggies with just a little olive oil and some minced garlic - no need for salt at all!); no processed foods at all they are full of chemicals especially sodium; fresh fruit, whole grains only - no white carbs for the most part. If you eat these foods in the proper portions (I suggest logging everything you consume), you will be healthier and you won't have to worry about salt and sugar, because you are eating only natural foods.

    Hope this helps and good luck.
