Do you feel like you are constantly hungry or craving foods you know aren't good for you? Same...but good news! There are specific reasons for why you crave certain foods that you do and we are here to help!

If you crave...

Sweets

 

What you are lacking: Chromium, Carbon, Phosphorus, Sulfur, or Tryptophan.

What to eat to combat these cravings:

  • Dark leafy, vegetables
  • Dairy (if tolerable)
  • Nuts (not peanuts)
  • Liver
  • Chicken
  • Beef

If your biggest issue is chocolate, you probably need to add more magnesium to your diet. Safe foods to add to your diet are raw nuts and seeds, or try unsweetened chocolate (90-100% Dark chocolate) in moderation!
