It's weird, I used to crave for chocolates before my period, but for the past few weeks, I have been on some weird choclate craving. Non-stop! And unrelated to my period. So what is it? Seasonal/temprature changes? Is my body craving for some specific nutrients? What's going on?! I don't understand. dh even asked, "Are you pregnant?" Well, the answer is no.
Everytime I walk into a store that sells food, I think, "Buy choclate." drives me nuts, what's going on?!

You may want to up your intake of B vitamins, especially folic acid. In this house that seems to be the main culprit for outta control gotta have chocolate feelings.

i have heard similar idea that lack of nutrients is cause, throwing you off balance into a swing of sweet/salty thing. anyway, also magnesium is another one i hear. allow yourself a bite or two each day at special time like after kids are asleep. limit yourself though or it is not a treat!! good luck. tara
