Extreme sensitivity to the taste of salt?

Has anyone else had this happen to them? Suddenly, everything tastes unbearably salty. I mean, like poisonously, I-can't-even-eat-this salty. It happened to me this week. I had been eating these LF ham/NF cheese rollups for lunch for about a week, when all of a sudden I opened my lunch, bit into one, and it felt like someone had rolled the thing in table salt. These are packaged cold cuts and I know they didn't change; it's me.

I remember this happening the last time I did a long Stills diet. It's so weird and so sudden. Anything with salt is just inedible. Even Diet Coke tastes like sea water. I ended up having several totally unseasoned HB eggs for lunch and the lack of salt was a relief.

I wonder what caused this? Anyone else experience it?

I have never had this happen. Hope someone can help.

I've noticed when I eat well on plan that things will taste saltier. But not, bad salty. I think it's just my tastebuds end up noticing more flavors. I mean, I was liquid fasting a few days and ended up having some of this cottage cheese I thought was disgusting. It tasted fine after the fast, and not as flavorless as I had previously though.

You know, when I followed low carb diets previously, that did happen. So my solution was to start rinsing off lunch meat to reduce the amount of salt. I would pour some cool water right into the package of ham, shake it around over the sink in case it leaked, and drain out the water. I might do this once or twice depending how salty it was, and that helped quite a bit. Using up the meat quickly is also a good idea since salt is a preservative. I liked to dice up the ham and throw it in with scrambled eggs. Or roll up the ham and eat it as is for a quick snack.
