What are you Craving?

Do you crave sweets like chocolate and candy? Or maybe you want something salty to snack on like pretzels or nuts. No No No. You're in the mood for a big, juicy, mouth watering steak.
Whatever you're craving, Dr. Oz says, "The gut and the brain are the two most closely related organs. So it makes perfect sense that the foods we eat change the way our brains function."

Your snack of choice could clue you into what you're needing and wanting emotionally.

  • Meat could mean you're angry
  • Sweets might be a sign of depression
  • Ice cream might mean you're anxious
  • Salty snacks could mean you're stressed
  • Pasta might signal loneliness or sexual frustration
  • All of the above might mean you're just a little bit jealous

Mmmm, I'm am so looking forward to all that creamy fattening food on Thanksgiving. I don't know why people try to make mashed potatoes low-fat. Bring on the fat. That's what I say.

Cravings generally last 10 to 15 minutes. Its recomended to keep a bottle of water on hand and when u get one sip on the water and forget about it. Its a great way to not give into temptation. I was told this by my ob bc I had serious craving for food period in my early pregnancy. Now last night I craved a milkshake, then I wanted pancakes, then I wanted a 6 dollar burger then I wanted doughnuts do I need to continue?
