Looking for a new way to make healthy chips? Then you have to try these tomato chips. You’ll slice big, juicy tomatoes into thick slices and drizzle them with benefit-rich olive oil.

Several doctors who have studied the effects of a low carb diet on the body have recommended that if you consume less than sixty grams of carbs a day, you need to increase your sodium intake by two to three grams (that’s a lot when you’re talking about salt!). So when you feel that craving for salty foods coming on, don’t ignore it! Try to satisfy the craving by consuming salt in a healthy and natural way (many of the recipes below will help you!). If the craving persists, visit your doctor and see what they have to say about your salty craving in conjunction with your low carb diet.
Another thing to mention is that when you start eating low carb, your liver no longer holds on to excess sodium as it use to. Instead, it flushes the sodium out frequently. If you have a high carb diet, this encourages your liver to retain salt but when you have a lower carb intake, your body naturally excretes the salt. This is called the “natriuresis of fasting’ and is something that hunter-gatherer cultures have seemed to evolve to compensate for. These cultures where processed foods are nonexistent and diets are naturally low in carbs have a high sodium intake. You should take a page from the books of these ancient cultures and abide by your bodies need for salt!

Tips for Success: Read your labels. Watch out for hidden carbs; to calculate the grams of carbs that impact your blood sugar, subtract the number of grams of dietary fiber from the total number of carb grams. Also double-check serving sizes on labels; some foods and drinks are actually two or more servings, so you need to add in those extra carbs and calories.
