A question for anyone with an interest in nutrition please Around 3 weeks ago and totally out of the blue I started to crave nuts to eat - cashew, brazil in particular, walnuts, pistachio, hazel, pecan, pine, macadamia etc. Everything apart from peanuts. I've not been able to eat nuts reliably for 10+ years as it starts off terrible stomach pain and then explosive diarrhea (sorry if TMI). Other high fiber foods cause the same stomach problems and I'm not craving anything else. So, I've started cautiously eating them again. Can manage very small quantities before the stomach cramps set in. Thought it might be a disguised salt craving as I have POTS but it seems not. Unsalted fine. There's been a change into Autumn here in the UK but I swear I am not a squirrel. Not craving more food in general - just nuts! The craving starts each day late morning or the afternoon. It's gone by dinner time. It's very intense as I can feel the nuts in the mouth, I produce saliva and my stomach rumbles. I want to binge on them and having a meal like lunch doesn't make any difference. Somethings I have cravings for oily fish. Have't had that too badly recently. Had salmon last night but today have the terrible craving for nuts. There are none in the house right now. Ate the remainder of the pine nuts (for cooking normally) yesterday. Any ideas welcome!
