Salt addiction may cause food cravings and obesity,,,so easy on the chips
Craving salt is a sign that your adrenal glands that regulate sleep, hormones and your body's response to stress, need attention!
If you crave sweets, it could be a sign that you consume too much salt.

Satisfy Your Chocolate Craving
Ghirardelli cocoa 86% Dark Chocolate, not as sweet as the 72% one, but it is so intense that 2 small squares are all you want. I buy two large bars at Walgreens or Walmart. Hershey's now makes dark chocolate kisses. You can eat 5 of those for 100 calories.
Dark chocolate also has a low glycemic index, meaning it won't cause huge spikes in blood sugar levels. Chocolate has magnesium and helps prevent type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure and heart disease..it also has positive effect on your mood. So indulge moderately..chocolate is good for you.

I crave chocolate a lot now, too. I have always liked chocolate but I will crave a piece of chocolate over other desserts 9 times out of 10 now. I keep mini chocolate bars in the house, and most are 150cal for 2, so as long as I limit myself to just 2 I am fine.

I have noticed that over the course of adopting a healthy lifestyle, my "bad" food cravings have changed. Back at my heaviest, I craved donuts, cakes and icing as my vices. Now I crave chocolate...and more chocolate. I find it odd, because at that point, chocolate was not something that interested me. I absolutely despised chocolate cakes, puddings, or anything else laced with it - now, I cannot get enough!! Chips too - I used to hate them; now I cannot get enough! Has anyone else found that they have had a shift in their "bad" food cravings?
