If you had to give up either all sweets or all salty foods for one whole year, which would it be?

1) Sweets: no soda, chocolate, cookies, candy, gum, ice cream, creamer or whip cream in your coffee, sugar in your cereal or on your oatmeal, no artificial sweeteners, no waffles, muffins, chocolate milk, no holiday goodies, NO PIE.

2) No salt or salty foods: I'm fairly certain you can die from this. Not having any sugar might make you want to die, but not having sodium actually can be deadly. (Let's pretend it's not.) No salt on the rim margaritas, no chips and salsa, no beef jerky, no soy sauce for your rice or baked potatoes, no salted butter, no potato chips, no salty mac & cheese, no french fries.

  • I'm going with no salty foods, every morning I drink either a Mountain Dew or a red bull I'm practically reliant on it.

  • I already cut refined sugars from my life. It's so easy to give up. And salty foods I eat in moderation. Soda is the worst especially coke. It tastes like poison that's making my mouth all sticky.

  • Well i dont really like sweets, plus to much sugar in something makes me sick and nauseous and not really into salty things, plus to much salt will give me nasty heart burn. I prefer spicy and cheesy foods, oddly enough spicy foods dont give me heart burn. So giving up salty or sweet foods wouldn't be hard.

  • Sweets. I barely eat any of that stuff as it is, so it would be a fairly easy transition.

  • Sweets make me feel sicker sometimes, so I would give up those. Honestly, I don't even think people need as much salt as they get in things like soy sauce, but yes, some is necessary for optimal functioning.

  • Of the list you gave for sweets I typically don't eat (or like) any of that stuff anyway. It isn't even a loss. I didn't even notice how little sugars I eat until I read this.

  • I gave up all sweets 6months ago.
    Just one pice 99% chocolate a day because it's actually healty, but it's definitly nowhere near sweet.
    But I didn't cut on fruits, and they are sweet to :-)

    Lost 30kg in the last 6months, thats my motivation, if someone asks

  • Salt/salty foods for sure would be the hardest. tbh if I didn't have sweets laying around the house I probably wouldn't even eat them or realize they were missing. Fruit would be difficult though

  • I'll give up sweets. I'm not much of a sugar person to begin with, but I do like baking so I'd have to give that up too, lol. I'm a salt person. I've been on a low sodium diet in the past and didn't feel that great while on it.

  • Sweets cause I ain't a sweet tooth. I just have something sweet in some occasions or when I feel like it (which is not often) so I wouldn't be as bothered.
