default what's behind food cravings

This is Why You Have Food Cravings (link) I suspect, as HSP, we are even more influenced by them. The author notes one type is helpful; when our body needs something. The others can point to clues about ourselves we may be unaware of. It's a good article.

I'm not familiar Elkaim, bit I've watched Robert Lustig and his Sugar: The Bitter Truth

Robert H. Lustig, MD, UCSF Professor of Pediatrics in the Division of Endocrinology, explores the damage caused by sugary foods. He argues that fructose (too much) and fiber (not enough) appear to be cornerstones of the obesity epidemic through their effects on insulin.

It's an eye-opener !!

I'm well aware of the consequences of dietary imbalances, much of which is caused by too much sugars and lack of fiber and other components. That's why I thought the article about cravings was so helpful; to break bad habits, we all need to be aware of the underlying causes too.
