Who here craves salt more than sugar?

Postby madeline » Sat Jul 07, 2007 2:42 pm

90% of the time my cravings are for savory things- like olives, sushi, salt and vinegar chips, cans of tuna, pizza shapes etc...

Very rarely am I craving chocolate unless it's right in front of me (like right now there's a fundraiser box of freddos, caramellos, etc on my kitchen table grrr- not mine either).

So who here is a sugary and who's a salty? :wink:

I'm more of a sweet tooth too, but that doesn't mean I don't get cravings for chicken chips...
Just keep moving! And don't be lazy...

I bought an eggplant the other day, and on a sticker on it's side was an idea that might help with this.

You cut it into thin thin rings, soak in slightly salty water, then pat dry, and bake in the oven until crunchy.

Maybe spray with a bit of olive oil spray.

I love baked eggplant so was planning on trying this out. :)

But yeah, I'm a carb junkie...cakes biscuits etc are my downfall, and apparently the more carbs you eat, the more you crave. I've found cutting them basically out of my diet has bought a lot of my cravings under control. :D

I am a sucker for greasy carbs. I love my hot chips. KFC is my ultimate weakness. I will get a craving and will try to eat something healthy, I can look through every cupboard, fridge, freezer in the house but I can't find anything to eat ( not for lack of food) because I am so obsessed with the idea of KFC. The cravings are stronger than when I was pregnant! I will eat chocolate if it's there but would always rather have chips.

Funnily enough, I'm the same way. I crave spicy things, not necessarily salty things. I have a very sensitive pallete to salt and sugar but I love chilli. I put tabasco sauce on EVERYTHING!

Same here, word for word....definately a savoury girl here, you could give me a block of chocolate and I could very easily leave it in plain view in the fridge forever. Put a box of KFC or a bag of cheese and onion chips in front of me though and it'll be gone so quick you wonder if it ever truly existed in the first place ;)

Have never found a way to stop that crave/binge too.

I've been craving salt lately too. I have to restrain myself from adding sea salt to my meals.

I've especially been craving the Red Rock Deli Honey soy chicken chips. :x :(

To stop the cravings i've been chewing sugar free chewy gum. It keeps my mouth busy and I distract myself by going in the yard and doing some gardening or running around with my son (minus the gum).

I crave hot, sour, salty and sweet. Sometimes in the middle of eating something salty, I think about something sweet. And vice versa. Sometimes I eat sour thing, and then crave for something hot, and then something sweet. :cry: I don't feel hungry but I eat because it seems fun.
What is the reason of craving? :?: I want to stop but I don't know how.
