Hi, its really strange at the moment i keep getting cravings for food i dont normally like! Eg. peanut butter.
And i also have really gone off food i used to love e.g. Bacon.
I also have a really small apetitite and pick at food.
And sometimes after eating i feel sick!
This has all come on in the last 2 weeks.
Does ne1 know what could be wrong with me??

    you could be pregnant, so do a pregnancy test (but only if there's a chance of it!). or, you could be deficient in a vitamin or something - your body could be craving stuff that has it in.

    That's a myth. If it were true, women all over would be craving spinach to raise their iron intake.

    that's not true anyway - the only reason people think that spinach has so much iron in it is because of a misplacement of a decimal place when the food nutrition lists were first published - and i crave various foods when i need something in my diet.

    TBH I don't think the human body is clever enough to 'crave' a particular food that has certain vitamins in it.

    I think you'll find that Vitamin Ch is essential for health and wellbeing.

    i think that if you eat loadsa sweet things for a while your body starts to crave savoury things and vice versa! so if youve gone off bacon it could be cos youve been eating too much of it?
    you might feel sick after youve been eating cos you have been picking at things cos, so youve got an assortment of different foods in your stomach at once. sorry if this sounds abit grim

    sometimes the body does weird things...like i constantly crave cereal! it used to be chocolate and biscuits, but now its a bowl of cornflakes everytime. I never used to be like this. I just dont think you can explain cravings!

    try getting your hormone levels checked.

    it sounds a lot like pregnancy symptoms, and occasionally hormone imbalances symptoms mimic those of pregnancy.

    just an idea.

    yeah..cravings suckkkkkkkk....
    There are times when Im not even hungry and Ill just eat and eat..lol
    I hate it so much, cause then I feel fat, and I know I'm not..well I've realized it anyways lol
    But it's all good..it wont kill me to have one day(or three) of eating crap every second!
