ms dash seasonings are no sodium seasonings.
I think they get the name from the DASH diet with low sodium intake.
so use those seasonings, buy raw foods. Rinse all food (for the most part) before cooking.
You dont need cottage cheese, sodium isnt usually the problem... why are you keeping it at that amount?

Try to find Dietz and Watson brand Gourmet no salt added turkey breast, it has i think 60mg salt per serving. I know they carry it at BJ's wholesale club, thats where I get it
Where is the rest of your sodium coming from?

How lean are you actually trying to get? Are you doing a show or photos or anything? Do you have problems with blood pressure?
If not, I'm not saying sodium isn't worth watching but your macro-nutrients are more important.

No on any show. Just trying to lose about 10 more pounds. The scale will jump 3 to 5 pounds sometimes in one day! Then go back down.

Put cinnamon in the yogurt and anything else it would match with, it can help you to store carbs into the muscles.
The greek yogurts have probiotics which are great for digestion.
You can also add psyllium husk - one of the most underrated supplements out there.

Hitting the scale too often will play with your head, because it is normal to fluctuate 3+lb through the day.
Think of this, if I weighed you first thing in the morning and you eat a bowl of oats, a protein shake made in water and you drank 20oz of green tea......your weight is going to change just like if I handed you all those things to hold onto while you were on the scale - you're just holding all of it in your GI system. As you drink and eat all day, your body is holding more "stuff" and obviously is going to weigh more.
Weigh in on Monday mornings because it will make you eat cleaner on the weekends, and weigh in Thursday to keep yourself honest in the beginning of the week. Keep an excel spreadsheet or something of your 2 weigh-ins per week, and break it into small goals. Every week hope to lose 1-1.5lb and you will be at your goal in 6-10 weeks depending on how clean you're eating. Good luck!

Makes sense. I am tracking weight and daily meal and even calories burned from training & cardio. I have lost 15 in 6 weeks But the last 10 is killing me!

Stop counting your calories you burn and just judge your workout by your level of exertion. I've been where you are before, and when you go too overboard with the fine details you always end up losing the big picture (I always did). Seeing how much you've lost already shows that if you keep a similar routine and eat right you will keep losing.
Keep the nose to the grind stone and I hope that helped!
Crush the lean protein!

1) It really tastes great,
2) You're getting 30+g of protein without any cooking involved
3) It contains probiotics
4) It is flexible. You can add other supplements to it, if you ever wanted to. I add 5g leucine right now, but you can also add 1 TBSP of Psyllium Husk for gut health/more fiber in general. If you're bulking you can add walnuts or slivered almonds, peanut butter or flax seed oil, more or less fruit, granola or oats, ground flax seed you name it.
