M:I'm looking for Mrs.Smith's office.
W:I'm Mrs.Smith,come right in.
M:I was at the student health services yesterday. They told me that my blood pressure is too high.
W:Then I suppose you need a low sodium diet to help bring your blood pressure down.
M:That's right.The Doctor told me to see the university nutritionist about it. So here I am .He gave this note for you.
W:Let's see.It says here that you can have up to three grams of sodium a day. One moment.Oh,here's the one. This is the chart of the sodium content of different foods.
M:Oh,no!Good bye potato chips and snack bar hamburgers.
W:Yes,and good_bye to processed foods in general. But you can have almost all fruits and vegetables with a few exceptions like spinach.
M:That part's okay,I hate spinach. What worries me is where do I eat. Do I have to eat at the university hospital while my friends eat in the dining hall?
W:Not at all.I'll just call the dining hall manager. He handles all sorts of special menus low calory,low cholesterol,diabetic.
He see that you don't go over your three grams.
M:What if I want to go to a restaurant?
W:Just use your chart and select your food carefully.
M:Thanks a lot.This won't be nearly as bad as I had thought would be.
