craving salt?

#1
Has anyone experienced a real craving for salt? am not thinking food here am not wanting crisps or peanuts but I feel I could almost kill for them simply because of the salt they would have on them..I am on day 12 haven't cheated at all just wondering why the salt thing has suddenly come on me in the last couple of hours.

Hmmm. Well you may be having less salt and it's just a reaction to that, because I assume LT only contains as much salt as we need. How much water are you drinking? I suppose it's technically possible you could have drunk so much/sweated some out so your body is low on salt. I would phone your pharmacist tomorrow and ask - and until then stick to no more than 4 litres at the absolute max. That's just my take on it - I'm no expert so wait and see what others say too xxx

is a small lick of salt likely to do any harm to the diet?? the need is getting stronger

TBH, I expect I would have a lick, yes. I am tempted to think if you're craving it, your body needs it. But if you do that, definitely call the pharmacist tomorrow! AND DON'T EAT THE WHOLE POT! : )
Do you feel ill at all?

I have regular salt cravings and on the opposite side I am complaining that my drink sachets taste salty. I did think it was to do with ketosis however I've been checking my bp and blood sugar levels and have found it is apparant when my blood sugars/ bp are dropping - not for any sinister reason just the fact its late, I'm tired, I've gone too long between shakes or the most regular one is 4.00 after getting from work and school.
I have a lower than average bp so I usually just "follow my body" and take a shake rather than salt and that usually does the trick.

I did check with the chemist but he wasn't very helpful.

Good luck in sorting it
with love julie

I had a cheat a while back of a bag of ready salted hoola-hoops. And I had a really awful salty taste in my mouth afterwards, the salt was almost over powering, made me feel quite ill. The taste buds have definitely been cleansed, and think the things I liked before will now taste disgusting - but suppose that is no bad thing as it's the things I liked to eat before that got me 4-stone overweight!! Lol
