lol idk dudes maybe its because it's early. but i just had some cashews. and the whole time it felt like i was eating fries. a little off putting but i'm not so far gone as to believe my cashews are secretly fries in disguise.

 

anyways. it's totally the sodium and fat content lol. but it gets me thinking, on how so many cravings for junk are really just cravings for certain macros. food for thought.

I’m convinced cravings mean you’re deficient in something.

I have this exact thing, only with Chickpeas - especially the ones preserved in water, so they're extra mushy. 

 

They taste just like potatoes to me. Tiny little potatoes in disguise haha.

I put a bunch of salt on them and eat them one-by-one like popcorn lol.

My body definitely wants its carbs back. 

 

whenever I'm craving something, my first thought is always, " SO .  .  .  what vitamin am I deficient in now ?? "  

I've definitely always viewed it as your body's way of telling you some nutrient you're missing.

cravings can actually be really helpful. 

unless it's unhealthy stuff ? then I assume my microbiome is unhealthy, and double down on the probiotics.

thats what ive always believed and its true isnt? cravings are because you need something, we connect protein with meat subconsciously and someone who is used to fast food is going to go get a burger instead of tofu or a chickpea bowl or grilled chicken lol


Your average long term member back again

Recently (since reducing sugar) i find my almonds taste like marzipan. Not rocket science i know since marzipan IS almond, but i didn't previously think they taste similar. I swear my tastebuds have done that magical/mythical adapting thing!

I'm hclf and it sounds like you are the opposite of me, so take my advice with a grain of salt knowing that but I find potatoes SUPER satiating. Like I could have a potato and even though it's relatively low cal I find it super satisfying to me. I don't really crave anything else with it, if that makes sense. And I binge a lot, so that isn't true most of the time. And sweet potatoes? Oh my God my favorite. Anyways, I love potatoes and will suggest them to literally everyone I know lol

you're my other half <3 together we make a real life balanced diet XD

 

i've always been an avid supporter of potatoes the potassium content is thru the roof!! and vegan mashed sweet potatoes are so good!! i'm sadly too afraid of most carbs at the moment. even though potatoes are amazing sources of nutrition, i just can't do it, yet. soon though.
