Sugar Addict

Sorry, this is also posted in the General section:

Is there something wrong with me if I crave sugar AFTER every meal? Or am I just used to it so my body just expects it?

Re: Sugar Addict

It could be where your body expects it if you eat after every meal, but then again, if you eat salty foods, most people often crave something sweet. But that doesn't apply to everyone, just what i've heard people say. Maybe a good rule of thumb is to ween yourself slowly off of sugary stuff.. Try sugar free candies, sugar free gums. It doesnt' take long for your body to not want sugar anymore. Also can drink water so you can be full.

I read somewhere that craving sweets can be a sign of magnesium deficiency. Dunno if it's true or not...just a thought.

That's interesting. What contains magnesium?
