    All sorts of cravings are linked to needs. When I was pregnant with my now almost 17 year old, I was swimming every day. Loved it. But I would go to Golden Corral every day... EVERY DAY and eat mashed potatoes and bread. Tons of it. I would eat two plates of mashed potatoes, probably 8-10 cups of mashed potatoes.

    Looking back on it, it was scary. I was craving lots of something that I wasn't eating. Totally scary. here I was scarfing tons of this food just to get the nutrients my body needed for the baby.

    It's a miracle I didn't get diabetes.

    interesting... no wonder while I was pregnant the doc kept asking me if I was craving non-foods. (I lost a ton of weight when was pregnant even though I ate like a horse)

    The urge to eat non-food items is called "pica" and I think you're right about the causes. But in addition to chalk and dirt, I think we have to include things like donuts, ice cream, seed oils, aspartame, and the whole panoply of industrial food substitutes. Viewed this way, you might say that 95% of the population suffers from pica. I certainly did. Only after switching to all primal foods did my appetite normalize and my strange cravings disappear.

    I work at a large company and they have a health, wellness, and safety department that gives out newsletters on CW health advice. Then, on "safety day" they had free donuts for everyone. facepalm.

    I keep waiting for my kids to yell at me to shut up. I'm horrible at trying to keep my thoughts to myself with regards stupid commercials. At best, I'll demand they mute the commercials, and I look away.

    No, she doesn't. She's a saturated fat- and cholesterol-phobe:
    Amazon.com: Customer Reviews: Food Politics: How the Food Industry Influences Nutrition, and Health, Revised and Expanded Edition (California Studies in Food and Culture)

    quote from one of the reviews:
    "Marion Nestle's book "Food Politics" makes clear that the political system she favors is dictatorship - with her in command."

    It's not a good idea to "put" anyone "in charge"; free individuals should be able to make their own nutritional decisions, for better or for worse.

    Yeah, my company tries to do "health incentives" by getting us discounts at weight watchers. They send out "health and wellness" emails periodically, but gods only know whats IN them. I delete them as soon as they pop up. Perhaps I should turn a snarky eye on the next one to come through.

    To my company's credit, there IS a tiny gym in our building. It's tiny, and in the basement, and cold, and is kinda like a dungeon (and not the FUN kind of dungeons either), but its THERE and theres a small selection of free weights and, most importantly, a shower for when some of us go run/walking over lunch in nice weather.

    Most of the time, though, despite all those cheery health emails, there is no one in there (although, that could be to aforementioned flourescent-lit-dungeon qualities. Doesn't exactly encourage one to try and get more exercise done)
