Low Potassium Low Sodium Diet Tips

The right amount of sodium and potassium in your diet is important
for your heart. Your healthcare provider has prescribed low sodium
and low potassium diet for you.





Daily sodium goal:

___________ mg or less

Daily potassium goal: ___________ mg or less

Sodium can cause your body to retain water, which puts a burden on your heart.
Sodium is found in many forms. Avoiding salt is important. Most of our sodium intake
comes from processed, packaged and restaurant foods, so limiting these foods is important.

Aim for 500-600 mg sodium per meal. Don’t forget to count sodium from snacks.

Refer to the handouts provided on following a low sodium diet.

Potassium is a mineral found in most foods and is important for heart health. In
some conditions, the levels of potassium can become higher than normal. Eating a lower
potassium diet can help to keep your potassium levels in a healthy range.

Use the lists on the next page to identify higher potassium foods and lower potassium
foods.

If potassium is listed on a food label, look for products that have 6% or less potassium. Per
serving, these foods fall into the lower potassium range. Be aware that potassium is not
always listed on a food label. It does not mean that potassium is not in that food – it’s just
not listed on the label.

For foods not listed, you can often look up potassium amounts at
Eating a diet that is both low in potassium and low in sodium can be challenging. This
handout can help you get you started. Consider meeting with a Registered Dietitian to
personalize your goals and daily food choices. Call 303-744-1065 option 2 to schedule an
appointment.

LOW POTASSIUM MEAL PLANNING GUIDE

1. Pick one protein:



□ 1-2 eggs □ ½ cup beans/lentils □ ½ oz nuts □ 1 tbsp PB □ 3 oz chicken/turkey


2. Choose ½-1 cup of lower potassium vegetables:



□ green beans □ cauliflower □ green pepper

□ cucumber □ spaghetti squash

3. Choose ½ cup or 1 piece of lower potassium fruit:

□ apple □ berries

□ grapes □ watermelon (1 cup)

□ pineapple

4. Add in lower potassium starches/grains:

□ corn tortilla

□ bread

□ couscous

□ rice

□ pasta

5. Use good fats, such as olive oil, and add flavors with salt-free herbs and spices.

For variety, substitute other lower potassium foods for the ones listed here by referring to
the “lower potassium food list”.

Diet tip: Leaching potassium out of potatoes:


A small potato (2-inch diameter) with skin contains over 700 mg potassium. If you want to
include potatoes in your diet, you can remove some of the potassium by using the “double-
cook technique” below. Leached potatoes will have 100-200 mg per ½ cup. This is similar
to the amount of potassium in ½ cup prepared potato flakes.

• Peel potatoes and cut into thin slices, diced small or shred for hash browns.
• Place potato pieces in a pot of water and bring to a boil.
• Drain water then add fresh water.
• Bring water to a boil and cook potatoes until tender.
• Drain water and prepare potatoes as desired.
