  • Hormones...most likely. Search how hormones are linked to appetite and mood and pretty much everything else. Eat the salad. Have your cake and bread too. Just eat it slow and savor it. Try not to go back for seconds. LOL. I have terrible hormone cravings also! I feel your pain! .

  • I think your body IS craving a nutrient. You have to use your will power to not eat the whole sheet cake. Good luck.

  • Sugar cravings can often be staved off by fresh fruit. Get something really flavorful like a kiwi or a mango or a pineapple. Apples and bananas aren't going to cut it.

    It sounds like your body wants calories. Put some almonds on your salad.
