Thread Name: BS: Weird Appetite changes....why?
Subject: RE: BS: Weird Appetite changes....why?
All the meat-eating smokers I know (myself included) tend to oversalt their food. We burn out our tastebuds, and alter our natural appetites.

Some of us eat dog biscuits as children, and some of our children refuse to eat much of anything but hot dogs and carrot sticks.   There's nothing wrong with either of those things that an occasional balanced meal or Flinstones Chewable won't take care of. It really is amazing how our bodies try so hard to take care of us.

Don't be freaked out by your appetite changes, but certainly pay attention to them, and learn what they might mean. Eat what you want, but pay attention to how it makes you feel- before, during, and after.

e.g. Before- was there something else you can think of that would satisfiy the same craving? What are their similarities?
During- when you get it, does it satisfy the craving? Pay close attention to see how it feels.
After- Are you still hungry? Are you tired? Refreshed? Dehydrated? Bored?
