This book will not help readers who really need to understand what No Salt means. It's recipes are off the wall and its textbook appearance is a turn off, especially since most of the material is basic. Recipes have too much sodium and even use some salt in many of them. For instance, her "Annette's Oatmeal Waffles" recipe has about 200mg of sodium per waffle. Too high for heart patients or those with hypertension. There are occassional assists concerning where to find certain foods and condiments, but that's as far as it goes. The author's designated authority is her M.S. and her CNS (certified nutritional scientist), but she had no R.D., which puts her out of the nutritional loop as far as authority. Her connection with the Pritikin group makes her effort suspect as a commercial venture.

I thought this book was extremely innovative..The author identifies numerous sources of hidden sodium in the environment..from water softeners to various preservatives and seasonings in fast food itself..She also points out, unlike any other book I have ever read, that stress can affect our body's retention of sodium..So this book delivers alot more than those other cut and dry and simplistic American Heart Association resources. Gittleman is always ahead of the crowd and this book is no exception.

This book was so easy to read and follow that I did not feel that I was on a restricted diet. The book identified lots of hidden sources of salt that I had no idea existed and made me feel that I was in safe hands following the author's advice.

Get the Salt Out is definitely a winner. I have been trying to reduce my high blood pressure using the traditional low sodium diet guidelines. After reading Ann Louise's book Get the Salt Out and using her supplement suggestions as well as her recipes throughout the book, within three weeks my blood pressure normalized to l20/80. Now I won't have to use any medication.

I found Get the Salt OUt a terrificly interesting book. I do not have a medical problem related to sodium intake but I do seem to bloat alot when I eat certain foods...This book and its unusal recipes have given me a flat tummy plus alot of food for thought. I have always thought salt was a necessary element to the diet..and now I am using the REAL SALT the author suggests and I feel satisifed and food is tasting good again. Common sense and innovative, to say the least...Some of the recipes really are tastey once you make them. (SMILE)

I picked up this book for my Dad who was just diagnosed with high blood pressure. My Dad is not following the doctor's orders and so I am trying to help him out a little. He actually liked this book and is having my mother make the recipes. That's quite a feat for any writer to accomplish with my father.

This is a very helpful and enlightening book. Amazed at how much hidden salt there is in some products. Also products that have salt where you think why is there salt in there!
