    Fats and simple sugars are considered free foods and contain only small amounts of potassium, sodium or phosphorus when used in the amounts listed to eat. You do need to count the fluid in free beverages.
    Most things you are going to eat you will still need need to watch potassium/phosphorus/sodium levels. Pretty much nothing is totally free. You still have to watch your numbers.

      Not trying to argue, but where did you learn, or read, that fluids in free foods do not have to be counted? My dieticians told me to count every fluid oz., popsicles for example, jello, ect...
