Salt craving
I’ve been craving salt lately. Is this related to not having added sugar? Is anyone else craving salt?? 🤷🏻‍♀️
  • annefood I do not believe that there is a nutritional correlation, but it could be that you’re reaching for salty snacks since sweet ones are off the menu. Or perhaps the heat?

  • annefood Hey @Reb1 - leftover chicken (if properly stored and refrigerated) should be safe to eat for 3 or 4 days, so you should be fine finishing those leftovers tonight. Bring the soup to a boil for a few...

  • annefood Looks fab!
  • LDA Looks good!!! Will add that to my repertoire!!
Learned new trick from my trainer! Add fruit in your 64 oz of water - get extra fruit serving in! Eat and replace the fruit though!

  • annefood Yes! This is one of our favorite ways to not only get extra fruit, but also avoid drinking beverages with added sugar- the fruit naturally sweetens the water! 👍🏼

Refined Carbohydrates
How many refined carbohydrates roughly are acceptable on a daily basis?
  • DietID_TeamDietitians Generally speaking, it’s best to choose unrefined, whole grains whenever possible. When it comes to added sugar in particular, the max recommended amount per day is about 24 grams = 6 teaspoons....
