Food Cravings have always been associated with being pregnant but it has been shown that stress and lack of sleep can increase cravings for unhealthy food even more. Health Care Professionals are prone to this since we experience stress and lack of sleep almost every day. Any experience of having increased food craving due to stress? I know I have. Based on this article, our cravings have meanings behind them. It is a way of our body to tell us what we need. Hmm, maybe I lack lots of magnesium and calcium due to my incessant cravings. But the good part is we can substitute healthy food for our unhealthy cravings!
