Health Corner: Salt + Fat
My personal experimentation with addressing sugar cravings - especially those late-night ones signaling I’m beyond tired - led me to an unusual solution: olives. High in healthy* oil, these salty snacks quell my sweet tooth without triggering an intense yearning for more shortly afterward.
So what’s the science behind using salt & fat to knock out these obsessive yearnings?
One: Fat satisfies the body’s hunger. Initially, carbs calm the ravenous appetite; however, the chain of events that follow carb intake sets up that familiar cycle that signals for more. Endurance athletes need carbs. They provide fuel on demand.
Author Jon Krakauer researched the role of fat in nutrition in his 1997 book Into The Wild. WWII concentration camp rations were deliberately lacking in fat (and protein, but that’s a topic for another day), the stuff your brain needs.
Various tales of the Lost Boys of the Sudan found overpopulated refugee camps sending these orphaned youth onward to the next camp with a small sack of beans - and oil, crucial to even the thinnest existence.
Fitness guru Jorge Cruise titled a chapter in his 2002 book 8 Minutes In The Morning: Eat Fat To Get Fit.
Two: Salt deficit is, surprisingly, behind some of today's major chronic diseases, including kidney dysfunction - diabetes. What? Isn’t sugar and refined carbs the culprit behind diabetes?
Last December, this Health Corner post cited Dr Peter Osborne of Glutenology (YouTube) on magnesium, scratching the surface of this specific mineral deficiency, correlating “high blood pressure, depression, osteopenia/osteoporosis, elevated cholesterol levels, and more.”
Dr. James DiNicolantonio refers in his book The Salt Fix to the myriad ways salt deficit is emerging as the link to compromised kidney function, one of many chronic diseases attributable.
And both low levels of salt, and of magnesium, trigger those irresistible sweet tooth episodes. Listen to what that carb craving is trying to tell you.
***Disclaimer: As always, check with your medical practitioner before embarking on lifestyle changes. Health Corner topics are intended to raise questions rather than answer them definitively. Things change. New knowledge arises. Ancient wisdom is revived.
And miracles take place against all odds.
*”Healthy” oils are a matter of great debate. Olive is widely considered a healthy oil in nutrition circles. Avocado and coconut oils share that merit as well.
