Milk Cravings

So, very random: This past week I've been getting lots of cravings for milk! I was just wondering if anybody knew if that is a sign that my body wants/needs more calcium? Could it be related to the fact that I'm on my period?

Re: Milk Cravings

It probably is a sign that your body wants calcium. Are you on birth control pills? I had an extreme reaction to mine and started craving milk like crazy on them. The really weird thing is I HATE the taste of milk. I was actually becoming convinced I was pregnant on the pill, but I wasn't. It's just the hormones in birth control work on your body by tricking it into thinking you are pregnant, which deprives your body of vitamins and minerals and can then cause cravings for foods like milk or cheese.
