What does the food you're craving say about you?

Posted by   + Show Post

What do the food that you're craving say about you and why?  


Craving beans - need protein

Craving cabbage or horseradish - need detox/liver issues

Craving spinach - low iron

Crunching ice - low iron


What are you craving?  What does it mean?

My guess is, you're going for the salt.  Pork rinds are a high source of protein, but watch out...they are super high in fat as well!

That explains the weigh gain. I gained 5 pounds

Good thing is, most is likely water retention from all of the salt!  Drink lots of water and lay off the pork rinds for now!  My husband used to eat them by the bag when he was on the Atkins diet...thank goodness, I never developed a taste for them!

 I learned about that one when I was pregnant with my first...who knew?  I'll have to do a little research and see if I can find out why chewing ice has anything to do with iron.  Just make sure not to drink anything hot right before or after or you can actually crack the enamel on your teeth!

This. I do crave salt once a month though...

Quoting michiganmom116:

mmmm....I don't crave any of those things.  About the only cravings I get are for ham, cheese, or chocolate...and those are rare.

 I think that one might be a no brainer...lots of women get "hormonal" cravings that time of the month!  Salt & sweet are big ones!  I've had months where my husband thought I was a nut buying a whole gallon of pickles!
