What’s your weakness?
Is it cupcakes, potato chips, bread, a big bowl of pasta, cheese fondue, fried chicken, pizza, ice cream or something else?
Do you crave something creamy that melts in your mouth or a salty crunch that takes the edge off?

Cravings, once considered the body’s way of signaling that we’re missing important nutrients, are now understood to be something quite different.
