uh, don't eat them? Do you want recommendations on what to eat instead? Baked chips, pickles, toast with margarine, etc. What else do you like?

Maybe you body is telling you something and you need some salt! Don't be afraid of salt although salted junk food isn't the best way to get it. Find some unrefined (celtic or macrobiotic) sea salt and use it in your cooking.

Regards, Anthony

Theres this incident where an extremely hairy prepuberty boy was found to enjoy eating massive amounts of salt, like stealing pickles and spooning salt by the mouthfuls. They found out that they have a certain type of condition, I forgot what, in which he excretes sodium out of his body very rapidly so he constantly needs salt. The doctors treated him and he was fine.

Maybe you have this condition? Do you eat tons of salt? More importantly, are you really really hairy?

Seems like I am almost 'spooning' it in however, I don't like pickles and am not hairy. Thanks anyway (smile).
