A client is provided instructions for a low-sodium diet. Which statement by the client indicates an understanding of the diet?

  • “I’ll miss eating tomatoes.”
  • “I’ll enjoy eating take-out more frequently.”
  • “I’ll avoid potato chips and cheese.”
  • “I’ll miss eating celery.”
Number 3 is correct.
Potato chips and cheese are high in sodium and should be avoided when on a low-sodium diet. Tomatoes and celery are not high in sodium and may be consumed. Most take-out foods are high in sodium and should be avoided.
