Food Cravings

Do you ever get food cravings, not based on what the food tastes like, but what the main component ( protein, carbs, fat) is?

I had this massive craving for eggs or meat this morning - guess my body was telling me I needed more protein.

Usually after bike rides I crave pasta - body needs the carbs?

I crave shirmp(U12 or greater)after a good workout, but some good dark chocolate might be good enough.

I get more protein cravings than anything else, carbs usually after a long ride or climbing. Fat - not so often!

Yeah, for me its usually: whiskey or chocolate.

Ok, that was only half-serious.

I know when I get a craving for a big cheeseburger that something is up (I don't eat a lot of red meat)

Good god! That sounds like me before I've cooked something. I can literally envision roasting someone's juicy thigh.

Ill crave meat the day after a really long ride.
I'm sure that is because I need the protein
for muscle repair.

My wife had some strange ones every time we conceived, the first time, she ate a whole pound of American deli cheese in ONE DAY! I went to make a sandwich and asked her where the cheese was - "I ate it all..." - "WTF - I just bought that stuff yesterday!!"

Her latest one was carrot cake, pickles, and American cheese...

For me, lately I'd have to say watermelon.

I have carb cravings a lot. I've eaten raw pasta because I couldn't wait the 10 minutes it takes to boil the stuff.

Liver and onions are at the top of the list, I just don't eat it because organs are not really good for you.
And sugar, got to have it. (bad steve)

I think I crave protein a lot more when I'm in training than when I'm not. That should be a "duh" thing, but not for me. I usually don't crave protein. It seems lately I can't get enough of it.

After a recent long ride I woke up craving Trailer Park Sushi - made with fish sticks. So that's what I made for breakfast.
Don't knock it till you've tried it.
