    Are Saltines bad for me?

    Because I just ate like...fifty of them with some hummus. Is this bad for me? I feel kind of weird, like...some serious regret.

    Haha, that is a bit too much salt.You might just get constipated. Try eating them in moderation,like 10 at a time. smile

    Assuming this is a serious question, you are experiencing the remorse from binging.  You might want to delve into the "why" of eating so much at once.  Believe me, I've been there.

    If that is NOT the case--then it is just eating too much at once.  The saltines might have a bit too much sodium to be really a good thing in that volume.  But if your stomach can take it, why not enjoy?

    Here are a few thoughts of mine after reading your question:

    Overeating (anything) is not healthful so it's no surprise that your body may be telling you it's uncomfortable. Likewise, Saltines are basically white, processed flour with sodium; as familiar and tasty as they may be, they aren't health-promoting like whole grains or less refined foods with less salt. And like 'duffsmom' said, you may be feeling off and regretful because of an episode of emotional eating. It's definitely worthwhile to take a step back and reflect on how you were or have been feeling before filling up on the crackers and hummus. You may have underlying needs and concerns that aren't being addressed thoroughly. I share from personal experience and know that it pays to look inside yourself or get help since food is not the answer.

    Just my two cents. Be well and take care.

    YES, the key is in the name. Too much salt in a diet is not good. Besides that there is absolutely ZERO nutritional value ion them.

    Yes, there aren't that good for you.  There are many other healthier crackers you can get.
