I have been craving potato chips for days now. Usually food cravings mean there is something lacking in my diet. Potato chip cravings generally mean I need more water and more rest (salt helps retain water in your body, simple carbs give you quick energy). Therefore, I stepped up my fluid intake, spent one whole day relaxing and enjoying myself, and got some decent sleep for at least 2 nights in a row. And I’m still craving the darn things. What else could I possibly need from potato chips? Iodine? Probably not—I’ve been eating instant wakame soup (piles of salt plus seaweed). Fat? Probably not—I’ve been trying to eat better, but I haven’t been restricting fats too much. Crunchy? Maybe that’s it? There hasn’t been much crunchy stuff in my diet lately….
Anyone out there have any suggestions? Honestly, I feel like I could just eat potato chips and nothing else all day long.
