If you crave chocolate what do you really want and what does your body actually need?
When dieting you might want to find out what your body is saying to you.
Probably what is happening is you need minerals like magnesium.
Chocolate cravings means magnesium deficiency try a few handfuls of raw nuts, seeds, legumes, fruits and do not add any salt.
Sugary Sweets cravings signify a lack of chromium.
Get it from:beans, broccoli, other greens, grapes, cheese, liver and chicken.
Try it before you go "OH, POO!" I just might work.
Now I do not know how anyone who drinks soda can have a huge phosphorus scarcity because most especially colas have phosphoric acid added to them.
However, if you did, you might want "beef-up" on beef, liver, chicken, fish, eggs, dairy products, nuts, legumes, grains
Sulfur is a bit trickier. You can become insufficient easily.
Have a good sized helping of cranberries,prunes, horseradish, other vegetables like: kale, cabbage and Brussels sprouts.
Tryptophan is an essential amino acid, unlike most amino acids our bodies do not manufacturer it therefore we must be supplied via the foods we eat.
Eat liver, chicken, beef, raisins, sweet potato, spinach
You can stop cravings of bread or toast by substituting breads for rice.
Rice is a complex carbohydrate with little sugar in it, mixed with a meat, staves off nearly any type of craving.

Who craves coffee or tea?
Now that I think a bit...ME, but it isn't the coffee, the caffeine is what I think all of us are craving when we miss that morning cup!

Iron is easily replenished by consuming more meat: fish and poultry; kelp, other greens, ripe black cherries
Potassium deficiency is a real problem and very easy to become lacking, eat white potatoes, prunes, raisins, black olives, green leafy veggies and of course bananas and some dried fruits like papaya and pineapple,
Should sodas and other carbonated beverages are your forte' craving get started on calcium supplements.
Stop salty food cravings by getting more chloride from milk, especially goats milk, change to sea salt which is much less processed and eat fish every week.
Should any liquids rather than solid food, excluding alcohol, be of more interest to you...
What do I always tell you, huh?
Drink water, drink more water. Drink more pure distilled water and hydrate your entire body!!
Flavor it with lemon and lime.
Now,if the situation is reversed and you crave only solid foods.
Runnnnnnnnnnn......don't walk to the nearest water facet and drink 20 or 30 ounces. You are severely dehydrated!!
Like only cool drinks and ever when it's 40 degrees below outside you'd rather drink iced over hot tea any day of the week.
Then very probably manganese needs to be added right away:
get it from walnuts, almonds, pecans, pineapple, blueberries, strawberries and cloves.

How do you stop overeating? What are some easy ways to lose weight and stop cravings cold?
Expert researchers say a lack of silicon, tryptophan, tyrosine,in the diet makes us overeat?
All are amino acids, found in most meats, and us being a meat culture??
I think the jury is still out on that one.
My opinion, whether you asked for it or not is: more research needs to be done first.
Certainly, lack of vitamin and minerals is a part of why we overeat, but by no means is it the whole picture.
Get more meat green veggies and fruit in your daily diet routine and no more lack. Take supplements.
If you have a lack of appetite what then? Get a really good Vitamin B1 supplement and eat more nuts, seeds, beans, liver and meat.
Also Vitamin B3 need to be up-graded so eat more Tuna, halibut, beef, chicken, turkey, pork, seeds and legumes or get a vitamin B complex of all the B's.
You'll be low in Manganese so sprinkle cloves on your salads and hot dishes. Try eating more walnuts, almonds, pecans, pineapple, blueberries and cherries.
Stop cravings from the killer tobacco with Vitamin A supplements, silicon and tyrosine, eat more oranges, green veggies, apples, berries.
