Every now and then I have some serious cravings. And it doesn't matter if I've just polished off a whole three course meal - I CRAVE.
Lately the thing I've been craving is Chocolate Creme Oreos. And oh my goodness am I craving them.
My overall theory on cravings is this - if I've wanted it for more than a few hours, and nothing else has sated it, I will give in. The thing is, I don't know why, but my body is seriously craving something in that specific item (probably sugar. XD) and it won't give me any decent rest until I eat as much as it needs. And then after that I probably won't eat that item for half a year.
I have some seriously strange ideas when it comes to food and dieting - I'm aware of this. A lot of it comes from being sick so often that I feel a deserve a break gosh darnit! XD If I want Chocolate Oreos I'M GOING TO EAT CHOCOLATE OREOS.
I've had people in the past trying to make me stop eating my craved item, and that makes me feel a bit bad - often the item is not that great for me or not in my specific health-diet, and so people give me those looks (you know THOSE looks) and ask me 'wouldn't I prefer something else?' or 'are you sure you should be doing that?' and that sort of thing.
Excuse me, but it's my body. And I am not interested in ruining my body or my health - not in the slightest. But if I'm craving something, I'm going to eat it. I know what emotional eating is, and I'm hyper-vigilant on that (I have done it in the past), so please don't tell me what I should or should not be eating unless you are one of my doctors. (Even they get on my nerves a bit sometimes :P.)
I guess what I'm trying to say is... tomorrow I'm gonna buy me some oreos.
Love to all who read! <3
