View Full Version : Sudden Salt Craving?
03-18-2002, 05:55 PM
Ok, I eat clean, i don't eat a lot of sugar, or salt, or junkfood...in fact I eat just about no sugar. But lately I've had an insatiable salt craving. What usually causes this? I've been putting salt on everything, vegetables, meat, pasta.

You could try just eating something for a quick fix rather than putting salt on everything. like eat a pickle or something.

eat salty food, i get the same thing, pickles kill the craving. and a whole pickle is like 10 calories

Are you drinking plenty of water ??? Are you eating too much potassium ? Electrolytes have to be balanced.

that's what i was thinking too, that your electrolytes are out of whack....either your taking in too much potassium, not enough sodium, or perhaps drinking too much water.

So it's possible to drink too much water??????

yes it is. it's difficult to do, because you would need something in excess of 3 gallons in an hour if on a "normal" diet, but if he is doing a low sodium diet, it wouldn't be that hard to flush the sodium in his cells out to a level that's too low for him, just by drinking a lot of water (not necessarily 3 gallons worth).
this is why drinking purely distilled water is a bad thing.

hmmm I don't drink that much water, I mean I drink some, but not THAT much. I haven't been eating many bananas, which is just about my only source of potasium. How else could I throw off my electrolytes?

well you said you don't eat a lot of salt right?
you need some salt in your diet. all animals do. that's why deer like salt licks.
