To me, this is just like discussing different ideas about cooking. Some are true and some are not and sometimes people believe untrue ideas because that's they were taught.
Craving cheese commonly indicates a deficiency in fatty acids or calcium.
If you wish to see evidence you are going to have go a long way to find it.
This topic could be debated forever. Even medical professional have different opinions on the topic and every other topic like it. Next year they may find new evidence or in 5 years.....

Some people crave things that may not indicate any health problems but just their obsession with food. Some crave specific foods, some crave things like ice when they're iron deficient etc etc.

I know my own body and many other people know theirs too. If I know that I often crave foods my body needs, why would I ignore it?

If you really want me to Google it I'm sure I will find something but I don't believe all the nonsense you find on there. You can find "proof" for everything. Even things that are not true.

I tend to not have (make/eat) things for a while, so when I do make something I hit it hard. I was still eating bread and cheese and other vegetables when I wasn't making toasted cheese sandwiches.
I'm pretty sure if I'm deficient in anything though it's chicken wings. I haven't made myself some chicken wings in probably 2-3 weeks
I don't agree, I think you have a bone marrow deficiency
It's about time you make us some food porn again! Love your marrow recipe

Now there is a feeder that spins when a squirrel gets on it as well as one where it closes .. both work based on the weight of the animal.

Good luck .. I know it's a challenge !
I first saw those spinners on TV years ago. They had wonderful clips of squirrels getting on them just for the ride.

Sounds like this deficiency thing is just like people trying to understand why some dogs eat their own shinola. The debate is endless with nothing really proven.
I think some dogs simply like the taste.

Perhaps you should consider seeing a homeopath or herbalist?
If you don't have anything against alternative options that is.
It can't be fun having to work harder than others to get the nutrients you need.
Hope you find a solution!

the shinola deficiency in dogs is a much exaggerated and largely anecdotal condition

This is positively the most painful and pointless discussion on DC yet

While that may be true, it doesn't make sense to make decisions based on what might happen in the future. Studies have been done on this and have not shown a connection. My doctors are all associated with a medical school, so are familiar with the latest research. None of them have told me to watch for certain symptoms, with the exception of symptoms associated with acute anemia.

Well, I have googled it, specifically restricting the search to educational institutions, and all I found is studies disproving the idea. A tip: You can restrict searches by putting this in the search bar: site:*.edu for educational institutions, site:*.gov for governmental sites, etc. I don't get medical information from sites that are out to sell something.

I don't have a problem with alternative options; I'm seeing an acupuncturist, who is also an MD specializing in cardiology, to try to treat my chronic headaches. I do object to unproven alternatives and I don't consider anecdotal evidence to be reliable.

Thanks for the good wishes

i beg to differ. there have been many, many other discussions every bit as pointless as this one on dc, maybe even more so. wait, what--shinola deficiency is painful?
