I viewed this great chart some time ago, which outlined the true causes behind some of our cravings… We all have cravings (especially at certain times of the month!), but sometimes there can be a reason behind it, and just because you’re craving something, it doesn’t always mean that is what your body is after.

There is even a few clues as to why pregnant women may receive cravings sometimes.

Looking online, the chart I found the most helpful is from a blog called My Life in a Pyramind and I’ve copied it below. Certainly something worth looking at if you find you have ongoing cravings for one thing or another.

What you're really craving and substitutions you can make.
