Yes, the more sals (salicylates) I give my 5 yo the more food she craves. Same for myself - one of my biggest reactions to sals after challenging for a week was uncontrollable eating. It was horrible I knew I didn’t need the food but I couldn’t stop until I stopped the challenge and detoxed – Jay

Same with my child. The more sals the more food he craves! – Vera

My girl is low salicylate foods for 3 weeks and her appetite has increased greatly – Gia

I get hungry with high salicylates, but it's a 'nervous' hungry, and my food just tends to sit there, not get digested well at all. Since going low sals, the gastroparesis is improving – Don

So great to hear this, I am a hungry hungry hippo when I eat sals. Within a couple of days without my appetite drops right off, I don’t even think to eat snacks – Sarah
