I have a MAJOR salt problem.  I salt everything and have for at least the last 10 yrs (and it’s getting worse).  I know I need to quit, but…

Oh and I love lays chips too! =)

I don’t think my tastes have changed but I pick salty over sweet all the time. I LOVE salty stuff soooooo much more than sweets.

I wouldn’t trust a salt subsititute.  It can’t be anything healthy for you.  Maybe try finding ways to use less of it but still get the flavor?  Or the sea salt, since it’s bigger you get less per measure than table salt.

I’m more into salty stuff now as I’m older too.

Fiance actually suggested hitting a movie tonight and I’m sick as a dog but I really want movie theatre popcorn (yes seriously). It took everything in me to say no.

As I’ve gotten older, there are a few foods that I used to hate as a kid that I now like–mushrooms and feta cheese are a couple.  FWIW, I’ve always been a salty snack gal.  I could eat my weight in movie theater popcorn or tortilla chips and salsa. 😉

Incidentally, I heard Dr. Oz say on his show today that often when you’re craving salt, your body is actually dehydrated.  He suggested that if you want to stave off a craving for salty stuff to drink a big glass of water first.

I go through such phases!  I’ve recently discovered I LOOOVE butter.  Like I can’t keep it in my house because I just eat it.  And buttercream?  YUM!

I get my salt fix from popcorn made on the stove the old-fashioned way with (real) melted butter and kosher salt flakes. yum! (or sprinkle some brown sugar on too for a kettle-corn taste!)

This post caught my eye as I really, really like salt. This has only happened over the past year or so. I don’t really salt my food, but I’d take potato chips over chocolate any day!

I actually cant stand salty foods! Growing up my parents cooked with almost no salt and Ive just gotten used to it. Whenever I eat out I cant stand how salty the food is and im drinking tons of water the rest of the night. Try using less salt at home, gradually you will grow to liking less salt. Trust me youll feel so much better with out all the salt too!

 I love salt! You would not believe the amount of salt I put on french fries! I’m trying to cut back though because I know it’s not good for me and that while it’s not affecting my health now, it will when I’m older.
