Maybe your body needs some salt.

It goes with this time of year, Hot dogs, and all go with pickles? Or you might be needing the salt if you sweat a lot.

I agree with the post that said your body needed something in the pickles. I have heard that also, or it could also be association. I crave Koshser Spears when I eat hamburgers, dill chips when I eat barbecue, and hard pretzles when I am in a bar. It will pass, and it could be worse.

Might be the salt. I love pickles for that reason. PLus they are low in calories. I don't eat them very often anymore though.

Salt cravings, along with other symptoms, could signal problems with your adrenal glands. But sometimes a craving is just a craving.

I am also a lover of pickles. Had some for breakfast this morning.

I read an article recently, you may possible be low in calcium. I had the same craving a few months ago. I started tracking my calcium intake on the nutrition tracker and its helping.

I have never had a fied pickle spear until I came down south. Yummy! I would never have thought that it would be. Of course that's probably why I gained so much in the 13 years I have been down here. trying to stay away from the fried foods and sweet tea!

I often crave pickles, too--dill pickles!
Probably because that's the saltiest thing I can think of at the time?

You could be craving worse things.

I say have a couple.

After all pickles are Cucumbers. And the reason they are so salty is because Cucumbers can't become Pickles without salt and sugar. Which are natural preservatives.

I think it would be better to be preserved in salt and sugar. Rather than something you need a degree in Chemistry, to understand what it is.

Both salt and vinegar are effectively electrolytes. It's basically the useful part of a sports drink without the sugar. Fairly concentrated. In the summer, when I've been sweating like crazy, I've been known to drink a few sips of the pickle juice even. Nothing like it when your body is really craving some electrolytes. It's also the most amazing throat soother if you're a singer.

I emoticon pickles.

There are a lot worse things to eat.

I have found that if I am craving something very specific it's because my body needs some certain aspect of that food... salt, carb, whatever... I'd say eat a couple and take care of that craving!!

Perhaps it's the high SALT content. :)

I'm no scientist, but I've heard that sometimes snacking on dill pickles will get rid of a sweet craving. Either way, just be thankful that you crave them - I love them myself! It's better than craving something totally bad for you!!

My secret goofy craving is those sour onions that you put in martinis. Who knows??? LOL

question..dill pickles seem a bit salty. Are they really THAT healthy or are they high in something else

NO! I am NOT pregnant! I have recently had a huge craving for dill pickles & I can't understand why. Can anyone give me any input about this?
