Another good trick is to have an apple, and salt it. You can even slice it up so it resembles chips, then give it a light dusting of salt. I have a friend who taught me this trick and it worked for me.

I like the suggestion of adding the raw vegies while you're eating the crackers or chips. The other thing I would suggest is: Do not take the whole package with you. Take some out and put it on a plate with the vegies. Then, go sit down somewhere. Don't eat in front of the TV.

I find if I drink water with a slice of lemon and some ice this quells the craving.

I thought of another tip . . . maybe alternate eating a chip or cracker between eating a piece or two of a high density veggie like broccoli or cauliflower. That way, it fills you up really quickly and yet you still get to eat the thing you are craving. Broccoli and cauliflower are good because they are high density and take a few moments to chew before you swallow, so it gives you more time to feel full and realize that you are.

I have heard that celery has the highest concentration of natural salt. If you like celery try that.

CONSISTENCY IS KEY, WATER IS ESSENTIAL!

You only fail if you quit trying.

I can be brave when learning or trying something new
I shall be bold by pushing myself to the next level
I can be fierce by being determined in setting my goals and reaching them
I shall give a full 100% of me and feel FABULOUS about the woman I am

Hmmm . . . maybe try some pickles? Pickles are low calorie and they almost always satisfy my salt craving after just a few. But if you are trying to watch high-blood pressure they may not be the best substitute. I think adding less salt to your regular food will help back you off of salt and soon your food will taste good with much less salt on it.

I have horrible cravings for salty food (crackers, chips)and I cannot walk away from it. Anything else I crave, I am able to distract myself and get over the craving. But, if I crave crackers, I will start eating them and cannot stop until I am sick to my stomach. Any suggestions how to fight this awful craving?
