ughh! I just thought I would complain for a minute,I was wondering if this ever happens to anyone else. I've been vegan for two years now,which has made me feel a lot better,much less tummy trouble. but i find sometimes because there are so many foods I've given up(like,all sweets because of milk or egg content) that sometimes i go into crazy binge mode and gorge on certain things,like today,where my food of choice was yummy bagels and honey. I guess it wasn't too much-I had a bagel and a half-but I just don't understand why this happens. eating too much usually contributes to making me sick too,so I don't understand why I do this. just wish I could be normal and eat like everyone else...:( shakehead

Hi Renee, cravings might have something to do with sugar levels perhaps or carbohydrates.
 
read the tracking trigger foods thread information maybe it will help.

I, too, experience the weird cravings, and for me, it's salts.  I also have hypertension, and salt is a no-no, but for some reason, I get hit with a craving for something salty, especially potato chips or popcorn.  I fight the craving, but sometimes I get weak and give in, and like clock work, I get sick.  I don't know why it's salt, though.  Anyone have an idea?

usally cravings are salt and sugar.

salt craving should be checked out also it can be link to other medical conditions.

There is some interesting info there.


"People experience salt cravings for many different reasons. The first thing you should do if you are having salt cravings is to try doing some research and see what the causes might be and if it is anything you should be concerned about or just a normal situation"

Aww, Renee, I know how you feel.

Sometimes, though, it isn't the food itself, but the quantity we try to consume in one sitting. Letting your tummy get overly full can be a recipe for disaster. Being a grazer, however, is advantageous as you'll have fewer symptoms.

I don't often miss the foods that I had to give up - but every now and then when family members are chowing down obnoxiously right in front of me knowing I can't have the food - I'll get this pang of desire for stuff that I know would do me in. People as well as foods can be frustrating with ibs!

Hang in - we're all in this together!
