    Hi TG

    There is a theory that your cravings are related to a lack of some minerals etc. However I have not seen any research that proves this. Soda water should be ok to drink but I donít think it has much if any sodium in it. The fizz is caused by carbon dioxide gas. Bananas have quite a lot of sodium but too many can cause constipation.
