Cravings really don't mean anything. There's a whole bunch of pseudo-scientific ideas around the ideas that cravings indicate nutritional deficiencies, not supported by real science though.

Eat fruit seasonally and as appropriate for where you live. For example, if bananas don't grow in the winter where you live, don't eat them.

@Desmond Thanks for your input! @raydawg You raise a good point. I haven't really been paying too much attention to my carb intake, and consequently I think I've been lacking in that department. (more)

A decent dose of fat: avocados, coconut oil and butter and sometimes I'll just have a bit of dark chocolate. Steak is effective with cravings too, odd.

Sounds like you're doing a version of low-carb paleo. You didn't state what you're eating and how much, so it will be difficult to offer much in the way of detailed suggestions. More is better. Some possible reasons: There's an amino acid or... (more)
