Craving dairy like a mo'fo
About a month ago I reintroduced starch and dairy (in teh form of Greek yoghurt) back into my diet. I generally feel a million times better, but weirdly Greek yoghurt has suddenly become the cornerstone of my diet. I eat it for breakfast every day in normal quantities, but then every few days I will start craving it like crazy and will absolutely pound it. I probably go through 4kgs a week!
It doesn't bother me cos' I love it, feel amazing when I eat it, and I don't care about my weight right now, but I'm wondering if this craving is an indication of a deficiency of some sort? Is the GY providing me with something my body is short of? Does anyone know?
"I think the basic anti-aging diet is also the best diet for prevention and treatment of diabetes, scleroderma, and the various "connective tissue diseases." This would emphasize high protein, low unsaturated fats, low iron, and high antioxidant consumption, with a moderate or low starch consumption.
In practice, this means that a major part of the diet should be milk, cheese, eggs, shellfish, fruits and coconut oil, with vitamin E and salt as the safest supplements."
