Our expert says:
Are you on a starvation -type diet? If so, then please change over to a balanced, low-fat, high-fibre diet which will supply you with sufficient carbs to prevent these urges which are caused by a drop in a chemical called serotonin in the brain. If you starve yourself or cut out all carbs you can easily develop such cravings which is the way in which your body is trying to tell you that it needs something. Click on 'Diet' and 'Weight loss' and 'Slimming Diet' for an example. Also start doing some exercise to increase the levels of endorphins in the brain which can help to counteract this drop in serotonin.
