Do you get food cravings? I sure do. The most common food cravings are sugar, carbohydrates, chocolate, and salt.
I had a monster of a craving last week. I’m mid menstrual cycle right now, and I always without fail crave carbs especially cereal, bread, and crisps.
My cravings go into overdrive especially at this time of year when it’s dark, cold and wintery because my serotonin levels are lower due to the lack of light and heat.
Last week I was at my boyfriends home and scoffed nearly an entire bag of his Tyrells crisps. I sheepishly confessed to him. I tried to redeem myself and bought him another packet. But low and behold I scoffed those too!
