Don’t go cold turkey Grad­u­ally in­tro­duce more whole foods into your diet each day. Start by re­plac­ing the salty snacks with fresh fruit.

Then, as your taste buds are ad­just­ing, move on to in­clude more fresh ve­g­ies, es­pe­cially those that are in sea­son, as they have more flavour, says Tania Fer­raretto, Ac­cred­ited Prac­tis­ing Di­eti­tian and spokesper­son for the Di­eti­tians As­so­ci­a­tion of Aus­tralia. Try salads for lunch, and load up your plate with ve­g­ies at din­ner­time.

“Your taste buds are very adapt­able. It takes about three weeks to ad­just to eat­ing less salt. Use herbs and spices to make it eas­ier,” says Fer­raretto.
