Despite my healthy eating and lifestyle, I still have cravings on a regular basis. This in itself is weird, because you’d think that you’d eventually get over cravings after a while. Who knows, maybe I still will.
I don’t crave chocolate as much as I used to, which is surprising because chocolate used to be my crutch. I crave it every now and then, so this showed a definite improvement.
The big craving I have on a regular basis is for chewy, sugary sweets. Think a mix bag from Sweets from Heaven, or those little plastic boxes of gummies that you buy at Woolies. The other thing I crave regularly is liquorice – not All-Sorts sweet liquorice, but actual salty Dutch liquorice.
It’s very seldom that I crave anything savoury, like chips or anything like that. My sweet tooth always commands my cravings.
I recently found this diagram showing what each type of craving means. I’m not sure how true it is but I’m definitely going to try up my intake of the relevant nutrients to see if that helps.
