For the last month or so, I have been craving oranges. I eat them like crazy! I just bought 8 today, and have already eaten 5. Is there anything that I need to be careful of, or watch out for? Is this a sign of anything? I do know that when you have cravings for something, it usually means your body needs something. But, why would I need oranges like this? It's sorta bugging me, but I can't stop! (and NO, I am not preggo, can't happen any more.....) Can someone help me out? Thanks!

  • The obvious answer to me is to call your doc and run this past him/her, maybe get some tests run to check for imbalances.

  • all the acid may mess with your stomach and give you the runs..but thats all i know of.
    maybe you are just craving the sweet-tanginess?

  • I don't know what it is! They just taste soooo good, and I want another one. But, this is every day. I'm starting to get a little bit concerned because it started with 2 a day, and now it's 5, and I want MORE!!! Just trying to make sure that there is nothing obvious wrong with me....
