Every month aroud the time Aunt Flo comes to visit I get a SERIOUS craving for cheese, like I can't get enough. I will be starting any day and I am craving all kinds of cheese! Thank goodness I bought all kinds of fat free cheeses, lol.

But really..I know my doctor told me once that craving certain foods while pregnant or otherwise could mean there was something in that food that your body needed...so WHY would I be craving cheese?

Yeah, it's yummy!  I wish I could eat it though (lactose intolerant).  Have a piece for me, but make it the good stuff!!

I crave protein and starch rich foods. IDK why, but my DR said the same thing, that our bodies will crave what we need. So i am guessing you need more calcium.
