The urge for something sweet or salty can hit you for lots of reasons: an afternoon lull, a light or early dinner, or even boredom. But you can do some things to get past it or, better yet, stop it before it starts.
2.Leave It at the Store
If you know you’re likely to give in to a salty urge, don’t let potato chips sneak into your grocery cart. Instead, stock up on unsalted or lightly salted walnuts — they have protein and omega-3 fatty acids that can be good for your heart. Same goes for a sweet tooth: Pick up some fresh strawberries or pineapple chunks, and leave the ice cream in the freezer aisle.
