Do you ever feel like the only thing that will satisfy your hunger is a Big Mac & Fries? Ever feel like a "chocoholic?" Don't worry! You are not alone! These are very common cravings, yet they may possibly indicate that you are actually deficient in certain vitamins/nutrients. The most common of these are...
1) Chocolate cravings could indicate a magnesium deficiency. Instead of reaching for a Hershey’s bar, try to increase your intake of nuts, seeds, and leafy greens.
2) Carb cravings could indicate a tryptophan deficiency. Instead of eating half a loaf of bread, try to increase your turkey, milk, egg, and walnut intake.
3) Cheese cravings could indicate an Omega-3 Fatty Acid deficiency. Try increasing your intake of flax seed, tuna, and salmon.
4) Fried food cravings could indicate a deficiency in healthy fats. Increase your intake of almonds, avocados, and peanut butter.
