I WANT SALT!
I can't believe how strong these cravings are.. it started on day 3 and I keep fighting them by eating more bananas, but this is not going away. I am eating 50 small bananas a day, around 4000ccal and Drinking 3-4L of water.. after all of that I crave pizza and pickles and a spoon full of salt and everything else salt related.. This is bad.. cause this is really getting under my skin and making me feel guilty and sneaky and all kinds of things I don't wanna be... I haven't cheated, really don't have any other problem staying on bananas, I enjoy mono fruit meals, but even after I am full I still want salt..
Just to recap: I was born and lived by the Black sea (very salty), ate lots of seaweeds and seafood back when I was kid and a teenager and obviously there was a lot of salt in our water and air. I've been a sad eater for about 10years after moving to USA and for almost 2 years now I have been 100 %Raw, did a 92 days juice feast to heal tumors and severe pancreatitis, both of which were healed and have not returned. I have been eating purely 80/10/10-90/5/5 for over 2 months now and this have been an ongoing battle with salt.. I was able to completely remove everything else, why is this so hard? Is it possible that sense I was exposed to a natural high salt environment from birth, that my body actually needs it? Is it possible that I went through so many changes lately that I am just not ready to let it go yet? I don't remember ever eating white table salt (well.. ofcource it was in some of that processed junk I used to stuff my face with), but when homecooked and raw it was always grey/ unprocessed sea salt.. not sure if it makes a difference though..
I feel like jumping off the island and eating some high sodium veggies just to get away from this horrible craving. Instead of really enjoying this pure energy, I just feel more depressed.. and I just ate 20 bananas and can't even breath, but still want salt.. Anyone has any tips? HELP! I'm all ears ..
