"Mood and Cravings"

Everyone gets a craving for certain foods now and then. Sometimes, you crave for sweet, sometime salty, sometimes soft, sometimes tough...but do you know your cravings are tied to you mood?!

Recent research shows what many of us knew all along: Our moods dictate what we eat. Researchers studied the diets of hundreds of people to show how personality and foods collide—how our moods may steer us to certain foods, based on their physical characteristics. The study theorized that many moods send specifics signals (for example, stressed adrenal glands could be sending salt-craving signals).

So what does your favorite turn-to food say about you?

If you crave tough foods, like meat, or hard and crunchy foods, you could be feeling angry.

If you crave sugars, you could be feeling depressed.

If you crave soft and sweet foods, like ice cream, you could be feeling anxious.

If you crave salty foods, you could be stressed.

If you crave bulky, fill-you-up foods, like crackers and pasta, you could be feeling lonely and sexually frustrated.

If you crave anything and everything, you could be feeling jealous.

So what are you craving for today?
