For me I find it best to prepare my own food and stay away from fast or convenience food for they are loaded with salt
In GOD We Trust Choose To Lose "If you are going to win any battle you have to do one thing. You have to make the mind run the body. Never let the body let the body tell the mind what to do. The body will always give up. It is always tired in the morning, noon and night. But the body is never tired if the mind is not tired." -General George S Patton, U.S.Army, 1912 Olympian

Hi, Yvonne - I am not having salty cravings, per se, but I do find many low or no salt foods terribly bland and boring. But I just think about how much better I'm feeling with my lower sodium intake.
I have a naughty little secret - promise not to tell anyone? I bought myself a salt grinder filled with PINK salt. No, not lower in sodium or anything but when I just can't take it one more bite, I get out my pink salt and give the grinder the tiniest little turn. I've had it for over a week and only used it twice, not even sure I got any salt on my food but I just felt so decadent with this luxury (cheap luxury, cost about $4 at our local Costco store).

See if you can find some lower salt varieties of the foods you are craving. I tried the no salt and that didn't satisfy my cravings, but I did find some lower salt ones that did. Best wishes on your journey to a healthier you.
