I like Quest Protein chips and candy bites for my sweet and salty cravings. They are lower in calories than the real deal and they have a little protein in them as well to fill you up. Also if you can eat just a little bit of chocolate and be fine hersheys makes zero sugar candies that taste almost like The regular ones.

I was having a severe craving for chips these last two weeks. I felt like I couldn't control myself. I am coming to the conclusion that I was dehydrated and was craving salt. So I upped my Water and today I was at least able to get through the day without caving to them. How's your water intake?

In addition to everyone else’s suggestions also be sure your taking all your Vitamins. Sometimes Calcium deficiencies Can give us salty cravings. But I think the hydration angle is a good start though and does the trick. Also preoccupying yourself to the your mind off of it.

Aah the head hunger. A craving is often to satisfy an emotional need: for comfort, because you’re angry, confused, stressed, bored, etc. or from a habit (like always had a sweet treat at night). Unfortunately, the surgery doesn’t stop the cravings. If only it did. We just have to work out strategies to manage them. This is part of doing the head work so many of us talk about.

Look for a distraction (read, go for a walk, do a craft, play a game, check your social media, etc.) or just wait 30 minutes. Often cravings have a short life span & by doing something else or simply waiting the craving passes. Have a drink of Water or tea, etc. I sometimes would clean my teeth. The minty taste can be satisfying or I wouldn’t eat because I’d ‘just cleaned my teeth’.

Salt cravings can be real especially if you live in a hot climate or are very active & are losing of salts through perspiration. If I had a true salt craving eating a little salt satisfied it. Just dipped my finger in sea salt, added more salt to my general diet or sometimes ate a small piece of cucumber rolled in salt.

Good luck.

These are some treats that I've tried and LOVE! I hope they work for you... if you decide to try them.
Salty cravings: Quest chips are high Protein & yummy.

Sweet cravings: Go Better Keto sugar-free chocolate sea salt caramel cups, sugar-free pudding, sufar-free Jello, sugar-free Cool Whip in the freezer tastes like ice cream.

You CAN do it! I hope you find something that works for you.[emoji173]

        Hello Joset, why haven't you been given a diet plan? Did you have your surgery in the UK? Every surgeon has a different diet, and no two people are on the same one. Weird I know. Contact your team if you can

        Mine was two weeks clear liquids

        Two weeks on soups, milk shakes and broths all with out lumps

        two weeks on pureed foods { I couldn't stomach this step }

        two weeks on soft foods like Protein yogurt, stewed mince and veg, soft scrambled eggs. Pate on hard crackers

        Then onto any food I fancied. If you struggle on any step or with any foods go back a step for a few days. Eggs, salmon and chicken are hard for beginners.

        Sorry I missed your original post, hope you are still on here.
