My weird craving

Thursday, January 16, 2020

To me, the type of craving that I have is weird. I have been craving lemons. Not the fruit but any food that has lemon in it. Its not in a drink but in food. Yesterday I got something that has lemon in in. Lemon Cream Oreos. I know that its junk food but it has helped me a bit with the craving. I am tempted to call the doctor about it but I'm not sure how to explain it or worth calling. I need to call him anyway because I think that the anemia is back even though I am back to normal on my numbers. Could the craving for lemons be linked to the anemia since I read something about having different cravings than normal while being anemic? I will check with the doctor tomorrow. It wouldn't hurt to check. I have been REALLY tired for over a week now even though I have had enough sleep. And some headaches.

    If you crave acidic foods like lemons, you could be low in stomach acid. Strong stomach acid is your body’s first line of defense and serves the purpose of sterilizing your food, disinfecting the stomach, and breaking down your foods (particularly proteins). When your stomach acid isn’t adequate, it starts a cascade of digestive dysfunction leading to digestive discomfort. This might be why you are craving lemons.

    Maybe a little healthier alternative to the lemon Oreos - lemon yogurt. Our local Kroger store has their brand of lemon yogurt so I'm sure other groceries have it as well.

    Just learned that blue jays eat white house paint to fulfill their need for calcium, with which the paint is made. Interesting, huh.

    As for your craving for lemon, I may not crave it, but I do enjoy the tart flavor. emoticon

    They use to say pregnant women crave lemons! Iron deficiency can cause cravings for ice. Hope you get it resolved soon.

    That is weird. I like lemon, in fact that is my go-to flavor if there is a choice.
