    Constantly craving apples, something I'm missing?

    Shop Now
    For 2 weeks I have constantly been craving apples. So I ate them. But they keep coming back, and it's not just a carb or fruit craving because I specifically want apples. Is there maybe some nutrient that I'm missing which is in apples but only in very small amounts which makes me keep wanting them?
    well then

    For me, it's the crunch and the fizz. I've discovered that the green apples covered in white, calciferous dots are carbonated. More of an oral fixation than a true craving. Have you tried something else, like maybe chewing gum? I mean, I hate gum - but maybe your teeth want to be busy...

    Oh! Water and salt. Are you getting enough water and salt to stay hydrated?
    Steak, eggs, potatoes - fruits, nuts, berries and forage. Coconut milk and potent herbs and spices. Tea instead of coffee now and teeny amounts of kelp daily. Let's see how this does! Not really had dairy much, and gut seems better for it.

    Nah gum is absolutely too gross for me and I had like 1/3 pound of bacon this morning so I think I got enough salt. I'll just have some green tea to get of oral fixation if that's the case

    Either that, or you're just really hungry and your body wants/needs more starchy energy. Have you tried carrots?

    Yes! Quickly! Buy my iodine and paint your nuts with it before you die!

    When I was anemic, I would crave apples (I'm not really a fan of apples, so I knew something was up). Have you had your iron levels checked recently? It's doubtful that it's the same, but thought that I'd pass on my experiences. Otherwise, no ideas.... Best of luck.

    If you're craving apples, eat apples! Nothing wrong with eating several a day, you are a growing teen and are active, nothing to worry about. Enjoy!
