came across this little blurb in some class stuff and thought I'd pass it on.....after all.....we all have them!

The word "craving" is almost automatically connected with the word chocolate. Anyone who has ever experienced a chocolate craving knows that nothing else will satisfy. You think about it, dream about it, and would give anything for it. Is it all in your mind? Are you a chocoholic? A craving for chocolate may be due to a lack of the brain chemical serotonin, which can make you feel agitated and depressed. The lift you find after eating chocolate may be a direct result of the added serotonin that you have prescribed for yourself with the purchase of that over-the-counter candy bar.

Cravings may be the body's way of staying in balance. Some researchers believe that whatever you crave is related to something your body might need so it can continue running
efficiently. For example, if you crave salty things like peanuts and potato chips, your body may be experiencing changes which affect its fluid levels. Sodium causes you to retain water, which in some situations might be necessary for good health.
