Funny you mention that MissP,
When I was undiagnosed with type 1 diabetes, being extremely sick and weak and losing all that weight, the hospital Dr's told me that despite my eating all the time I was 'starving in the land of plenty.' That I wasn't absorbing any food/nutrients without insulin. At that point I was gobbing salt on everything to the point I would just eat some off  my palm!! Gross!! Now being on insulin and gaining all my weight and strength back I just use a normal amount. I don't cook WITH it rather  put some on my finished product. Very interesting indeed. Makes a lot of sense!

It is interesting, isn't it? My son is eating a lot less salt these days, thankfully. It was out of control this summer before things started calming down a bit. I do like to cook with sea salt, because of the trace elements that I know we need. And I have never had to worry about high blood pressure (yet), so it doesn't faze me, though perhaps in the future if I don't lose a few pounds, I may have issues!

I simply don't COOK with it because I need to use a lot more to taste it. That's why I put it on after cooking. I only use pink salts, from various places. Table salt is sharp tasting to me now

I realize I'm a bit behind here, but yes, I too crave salt, when I chunk Romano up and toss it on my salads, it just adds that 'punch'. I don't seem to retain fluid, after using it, actually it sorta helps me!   I use real salt or pink himalayan for table/cooking use. I always used to be very self-conscious about not using too much. But, I do believe, it helps me to feel better.

66.77% of respondents to this poll (irrespective of their answers themselves) are, as of today, nonnies.

Within our small Forum sample:

If we separate the two populations by secretor status:
We see that within the nonnie population, those who "crave salt" outnumber those who do not, by a far greater margin than the margin between salt-cravers and non-salt-cravers within the secretor population.

Regardless of secretor status: 62.3% of ALL respondents claim to "crave" salt.

Whether that means these people acknowledge an occasional desire to add (more) salt, or to consistently/regularly pile on the salt we can't know. The posts explain many individuals' cases, and we find respondents stating that they could have just as easily chosen Crave or Not Crave, depending upon what was meant.

My mother never cooked with salt or added salt to anything, so staying away from salty foods is kind of second nature to me...  Which has been really bad since I switched diets, because I don't get enough now.

As for cravings, no...  I want sweets...  ALL THE TIME.

The only time that I crave salt is if I have not eaten enough protein. In other words, I'll eat a piece of cheese, have a mouthful of turkey, a few almons etc.. until I have my main meal and the craving leaves.

I voted sec no craving salt but let me explain this.
I do use sea salt,small ammount, when i am cooking and i do eat daily cheese.
To my knowledge,eating a small portion of salt daily is something our system needs.It sounds natural to me since from ancient years people were fishing,boiling the fish with stones from the sea to taste salty and were using salt to keep food for months.

Adding extra salt in your plate to a food that has been cooked with salt means crave for salt to me.

I think there was a time when doctors were against salt more than they should have been. We need some as we need other minerals, etc. Even healthy pregnant women need salt, not to restrict it unless there is a reason.
I think the problem is sodium which is hidden in processed foods. Since I eat few processed foods now, it seems that I crave salt. Also, I eat a lot of fruit now which is full of potassium, the balance to sodium.

I think I posted this before, so sorry to be redundant........
