Our expert says:
I have not heard that cravings for salty foods also encourage cravings for sweet foods. In general cravings for sweet foods are either learned habits, or a reaction to a psychological need if food is a 'reward' or an attempt to increase low serotonin levels in the brain. The latter can occur if you eat a diet that is low in carbohydrates. Cravings for salty foods are generally a learned response.
