Anyone here crave meat and salt daily instead of chocolate or sugar? I love soda, mostly cause of the caffien, but it's been this way for quite a number of years now, send me into a candy store and I'll find the beef jerky and chips! :) is this a fibro thing or just me? I take my vitos on a daily base, but I still want meat!

You know, I had to google meat cravings just to see. One site was sort of interesting, it said that a craving like that is physiological and should be indulged - your body needs something and you should give it the protein. It said something about your body may have broken down muscle mass and needs protein to rebuild. I wonder if this might apply in your case? It wasn't a medical site - but it seemed to make sense. I know I've been craving protein like mad since I've not been able to have much with being sick - I can't wait to chomp down on lots of it. Protein doesn't sound like a bad thing for us with fibro. My uneducated 2 cents!

Yeah, lol...I always want what's not in the house also! I've heard the your body needs what your craving theory, it makes sense. Right now my body wants an ibprofen...

It's funny you brought this subject up because for the last three days I have been sitting in my chair (where i seem to live) and I have been smelling steak. I ask my husband if he smelled it and he thinks I'm nuts. If I got three days without red meat (hamburger does not count) I get really bad cravings. This has been going on for years and as soon as I eat a steak, I feel so much better. I think it's a need for the protein. Good thing I like beef.
GO MEAT!

That looks like Thomas Kincade work. Is it? I love the pic though. I have weird cravings, I crave vegetables. I swear, out of the blue I'll crave a tomatoe or cucomber. Sad part is, when I am sick, I got to stay away from my fruits and vegetables. Because I'm allergic to salicylites, which is a natural form of asprin, and found in many fruits and vegetables primely the ones with seeds.

I don't know who painted that picture, I just saw it and thought it was pretty and so very restfull (sp?) just the place I wish I was at right now... I also crave fat. I know how weird that sounds, but if it's greasy, or fatty, or chewy, or salty I want it! I for the most part know better than to give in...but I've been this way since I was very young....
