View Full Version : Craving salt - is this normal at first?
02-08-2006, 01:37 PM
After a slow start, I'm on day 5 of 100% raw - but I'm really craving salty things, and I'm oversalting my soups, salads, etc. Is this normal when transitioning from SAD to raw? I wonder if it could be because the Celtic sea salt I'm using has a higher mineral content, or if it's just that the processed and cooked foods I was eating before had a lot of sodium. Any thoughts are appreciated!

I don't have any great insight, but I know when I got off SAD and started to do even 80% raw or so I went thru a few days of really really craving salty thing. I went with it, and got over it.
I'm sure that you will have some great responses to this!

This has happened to me...especially today!!!
I´m on my 10th day and today i´ve been detoxing big time, headache and throat swollen...i´ve been drinking ginger water and sprouted brazil nuts with raw honey, chili powder and celtic salt...hot!!!!
Maybe it´s our bodies adjusting...i haven´t craved anything sweet today.
I know it hasn´t helped...but at least you know there is someone on the same boat :) .
