Before starting the BTD I had sugar and salt cravings. Now I only have salt cravings, but less than before.

I did the low sodium thing for so long to control my blood pressure.  When I received my lab results back in April, I discovered my sodium was 136 on the reference scale of 135-146.  Since then I've re-introduced salt back into my diet and have no regrets whatsoever.

I usually don't "crave" salt but it does enhance flavors of foods so I use it sparingly.

Sometimes I crave himalayan pink salt, but it's more to do with it enhancing certain foods (love it on sardines for one ) After discovering this salt, I can't stand the taste or "saltiness" of regular salt... I love the pink salt for the flavour, not just for the saltiness...
There are other times (rare) that I notice I am craving salt & then a little in a glass of water balances me...

Don't really crave salt. I do use it regularly, so perhaps I'm getting enough.

Nonnie and I don't crave salt.  I use it for flavoring foods when cooking, but my tooth is sweet not salty.

I voted don't crave salt.
I do like salt but have been using it less due to BP, at time pressure gets a little high, I blame most of that pain and anxiety.
I buy everything low or no salt so I have more control over my intake.

have been doing this as well because most table salt has dextrose added - and dextrose is often corn based... I found it makes a difference to me.

I just found out my test results, I'm a nonnie I never would have guessed. I love salt and salty chips, peanuts, pretzels are the hardest things for me to resist. I alternate between salt and chocolate and there is even one chocolate bar made by Lindt that has sea salt in it.  I thought that was weird but it tasted great.

couldn't craving salt be an adrenal problem?


What is a mind, if not something to be messed with?
What is consciousness, if not a state to be altered?
If it helps to substitute for the phrase "messed with" the word "clarified" or "purified" or "alchemised" or "beautified", then perhaps my meaning is taken. A mind is a terrible to waste.

It seems that I can't taste anything unless I put an ample amount ..and I mean 'ample' on all of my food...and I have very low blood pressure sometimes..perhaps my body is telling me something?

hope it is sea salt you add and not table salt, which in fact is known to contain dextrose as a non caking agent

derived from corn, not a good thing being a nonnie or a B

Hello Everyone  

I am new here as I'm sure you can see, lol.  I just got measured up and tested by my sister who just graduated from the University of Bridgeport Naturopathic school and will be getting her doctors license in August.  She put all the info in and SWAMI says I am an Explorer (didn't get the %) and a nonnie.  I have been on the BTD for 2 weeks and all my cravings for salt and sweets have left.  To me this is amazing since all my life I have craved sweets and salt.  Now I have no cravings whatsoever, NONE.  I am completely amazed!  Has anyone else found their cravings stopped once fully on the diet?

I didn't read through this so this may have already been said, but I would think more nonnies would have adrenal problems and therefore be more likely to crave salt.

Welcome wondering... I love SWAMI too. Do I understand you to say that SWAMI says you're a Non-secretor? Because you have to do a specific test for that one: http://www.4yourtype.com/prodinfo.asp?number=TE002

Maybe I misunderstood. Glad you're liking the diet and seeing such great results to...

Before BTD I loved potato chips but never liked them too salty.  Even right before the BTD I always looked for snacks with minimal salt.  As long as it had a hint of salt I was fine.

Now I have to admit even though sea salt (which I only use) is still salt I have developed a technique where I hold the shaker in the middle and give it one quick shake on the food.  That's it; most of the time.  
  
I still think alot of food tastes better with a smidgen of salt but not all.  I've learned to enjoy the actual flavor of alot  foods without any salt. Since I've built up a catalog of spices I'm learning to rely on them more and more for taste.   Still learning to be an A.

I don't like food that tastes very salty.
I am a secretor and used to crave sweets before following BTD/GTD.
The only food I love that is probably considered salty is cheese.
Give me a spicy ginger snap over a (yuck) potato chip any day!
