    Lately I have been getting random food cravings, way more than usual. Like yesterday I wanted Ice cream, then chocolate, then strawberries then cheese. Now today I wanted honey roasted peanuts and more cheese.

    What are causing these? It drives me crazy till I some random thing of it, not very much. just a few bites and I dont want it anymore.

    Anybody else get these?

    Yes. I'm going through a Hellman's mayonnaise binge at the moment which is doing wonders for my arse... avocados too. Can't seem to get enough of them.

    I'm wondering, the size of your arse, or just the ease of downloading processed food...

    I'm still in my > 70% chocolate period.

    Aren't random food cravings a sign of pregnancy? :D

    My wife just wanted spicy food and espresso during her pregnancy. Nothing random.

    i get them all the time. my current fix is waffles. the last one was chocolate, and i just get them by watching them on tv. they usually subside a few months after i last see them on the prominent tv show. waffles from hereoes, chili dogs from sonic satam, etc.

    right now I'd kill for some peanut butter on toast. alas I can't find a shop that sells the type I like (wholearth threenut butter and vogel sunflour seed and barley bread)

    Some nachos would be nice too.

    I also crave V8 often but I have a decent supply so I'm going through it slowly.

    Until recently, sushi. Mac&cheese is always in the background, as is chocolate. One time, I was seriously craving bacon and mango sorbet. DH (who was only a boyfriend at the time) freaked out and seriously thought I was pregnant... until, like, nothing popped out 9 months later.

    Glad to hear you're not pregnant, Rokem. Sounds like that would *definitely* complicate things. ;)

    Are you perchance going through a growth spurt? I apologize if you're not at the right age for that, but as there are quite a few teenage guys here at MR, I figured it's worth a shot. Often when we're growing, our bodies crave certain foods we're lacking; perhaps for example you were needing some protein when you had those peanut and cheese cravings.

    why yes I am going through a growth spurt, I'm 6'3" and 15 years of age. It's also causing my osgood schluaters (i think i spellt that right...) to cause horrendous pain my legs and have been so many pain killers.

    right now its gum, well not really. I just want to chew on something and have been snacking alot lately and have gained some weight :(. So if I chew on sugar free gum I'm golden... as long as the artificial sweetener doesn't screw with me.

    Damned Jaffa Cakes. I brought a suitcase full of them back with me on a recent UK trip. All gone now. I need more. There must be some sort of synthetic heroin in those tasty, chocolatey, orangey, spongey cakes. Mmmmmm!

    Ah, that makes a little sense then! Babies from 0-12 months triple their birth weight, eating furiously, and then it tapers off until the major growth spurts of puberty. Make sure you're putting lots of good fuel into your body, lean protein, whole grains, fruits/veg, etc. Your body is working hard!

    For drinks, I'm on chilled coffee right now. For food, I'd say hasbrowns.

    Surely you've tried combining the two? ...Take half an avocado, put a dollop of Best Foods* mayonnaise in center, grab a spoon and enjoy! It's quite tasty.

    Yes, it absolutely has to be Best Foods/Hellman's mayonnaise. If you have anything else throw it away.

    I get cravings for sugary things in the morning. Usually its for a doughnut and a DR Pepper. Not very healthy, but it is like I must have it.

    Teehee. People who know of my frequent and very random cravings joke that if I ever got pregnant, my "funny pregnant cravings" would just be what normal people like to eat. :eek:

    I soooo wanted to get me one of these earlier today but didn't. Damn. Tomorrow, methinks. Tomorrow.

    And all last week I was craving pho (AKA Vietnamese style noodles in soup) and got it last night. *dreamy sigh* Yum.
