I just wanted to contribute to the discussion about cravings, which Steve is
having some problems with. Jan advised that the cravings will lessen, and
in general I would agree with her. This certainly is what happened to me.
I developed different cravings (ie for fruit) instead.
Although, I have been a vegetarian for about a year now, I still get
cravings for meat (*any* meat) and an awfully tired feeling whenever I get
my period. I keep expecting this to lessen, but it doesn't seem to. I am
usually able to ignore them (with some difficulty) but sometimes I feel as
though I just have to eat meat. If I eat a few bites of chicken, I feel
much better. However, I would really prefer not to do this.....
Dos anyone else have a similar problem. Would another food suffice in this
situation? I am not anaemic and am basically very healthy.
Just for the record, I get a little cross when people tell me this is all
in my head. Generally I appreciate that a lot of accepting a new diet is
about determination, but this is real. I believe that every woman's PMS can
be different and that it is *very* real for each one of us.
