Pickles are a fine snack but they are high in sodium. Maybe you're not getting enough salt.

Calorie wish they are good, sodium wish they are terrible. Maybe you're low on sodium, maybe you're pregnant!!!!

For reasons of the salt it has, NO.
For reasons of the veggie, Yes.
You can get them without sugar too. I have a jar in my frig now.

I don't find myself near them often, but recently I had a few dills and found them to be quite useful in helping me avoid cravings for sweets, particularly chocolate.....

I say go for them. The vinegar in them is one of those magic foods. We buy the big jar at Sams and I have them with my turkey on wheat lunches.

I used to be a pickle-holic, but not anymore. Too salty. Still eat them though, on occasion

I love Dill Pickles! I make my own every year. So I can control the amount of salt that goes in them. I usually only add about half the salt they ask for. Even then they can be to salty! I like to add lots of garlic and onions to mine. My husband likes them in his Bloody Marys! I just like to eat them!

I love dill pickles. I crave salt. Are you exercising a-lot? Maybe you are perspiring a bunch and your body needs salt.

Dill pickles are good low calories However there is so much sodium that I can't eat very many. I do track them.

2/9/10 12:42 A

I think it is a good snack IF you don't overdo it. I guess that is the deal with all snacks,lol. But go ahead and enjoy a pickle. Just don't down 4 of them every night.

2/9/10 12:39 A

well ty I felt like I was being silly for some reason ever since I realized it was time to take my weight seriously. I have craved pickles lemons anything sour. but yes the sodium was a concern ty again

dill pickles are not my go to snack; too much sodium for me.
eat what you enjoy, if you account for them in your food tracker by all means eat them!

2/9/10 12:34 A

I think for a dill pickle its about 12 calories...that's good...but the sodium content...that's not good. Enjoy the pickle!'s a veggie...
