    I often get cravings for soy sauce and marmite. Think maybe its the salt I crave. Quite often help myself to at least couple of spoons soy sauce on its own or couple spoonfuls of marmite. OH thinks it gross, however it helps me keep on track am happy after that. :p

    Does anyone else do anything similar? Its something I have always done not just when been on sw!:whistle:

    Sorry lol x

    I do like marmite and soy sauce, but not sure I could eat it straight out of jar/bottle lol.

    Might seem like a silly suggestion, but have you thought about mentioning it to your doctor, it could be a health reason that you are craving salty foods.

    so long as it's not all the time then you really shouldn't worry, but if you find you have to have these couple of spoonfuls every few hours or cannot stop at just a couple then you need to go get checked out.

    You aren't hurting anyone and I don't think you are hurting yourself - so enjoy in moderation matey.

    (must admit I used to have - a few years ago lot of egg and chips absolutely smothered in dark soy sauce - scrummy)

    I also love soy sauce, but really don't think i could have spoonfuls on its own :)

    i can't think of any weird & wonderful things I eat like that but am sure there must be something - thing is to ourselves they are perfectly normal, lol x
