Cheese Cravings-What Do They Mean & How To Handle?


Cheese Cravings-What Do They Mean & How To Handle?

Some people crave for sweets, their sweet tooth rules them. I am a maniac who craves for everything except sweets. I crave for cheese, pasta, chaat and all things tangy, salty and chatpataa 🙁

Cravings don’t happen just like that. They have a purpose behind it, and they indicate something which we fail to acknowledge. I don’t crave for sweet, not because I don’t like eating them. Just that my body does not give me signals to think of ice cream, chocolate or mithai.

This means that when I crave for cheese or pasta, there is a reason behind it. Offlate , I have felt desparate urge to munch on cheese. You would have noticed a sudden increase in my cheesy recipes like cheese sauce or cheese crackers 😛

Cheese craving is directly related to deficiency of fatty acids i.e Omega 3 fatty acids and calcium too. I did my regular tests a month back and my reports mentioned intermediate levels of Omega 3 in my body. I am not deficient but the level is intermediate, which may not be optimum for my body. I am an eggitarian, this could be a reason for such levels. My calcium level is great since I do eat milk products everyday.

Since I do follow low carb lifestyle, cheese works great for me. Other foods that I have included in my diet are flax seeds, chia seeds, walnuts and almonds. I am also planning to get my hands on Omega 3 supplements. In case you are deficient in calcium, include mustard, sesame seeds, kale and broccoli in your diet apart from dairy.
