My most common one is salt. Not always, but every couple months I just want ALL THE SALT. I do generally eat a pretty low-sodium diet, so my guess is sometimes I just need more.

Shark week is almost always chocolate. But that's hardly unusual lol.

In the past I've had a month or two of wanting pizza, fries, nuts, pickles, banana peppers, bacon, extra sharp cheddar cheese, feta cheese, spinach, southwest salad, steak, etc. but most of those are not unusual. They just last for a couple months then go away. Like now, pizza sounds disgusting to me. But there was a time I wanted to eat pizza for every meal lol.

I think right now I'm craving dark, dark chocolate. I discovered 86% and 90% dark chocolate this week and OMG IT'S SO GOOD. A couple weeks ago I went through 3 giant jars of Vlassic dills (like, Sam's Club size) in a week.

My weirdest is probably honey mustard, but ONLY from Quizno's, and only all by itself.

^^ Another agreement from me. I have a crazy active metabolism, and I've learned that if I crave something, I eat it. It works out for me because I almost never crave sweets or junk food. My usual cravings tend to be veggies, fruits or sometimes milk. I also have a problem with low iron, and I start really craving red meat whenever my iron is getting low. I mean REALLY craving it. I'll be driving past a herd of cattle, and I have to resist the urge to pull over, get out of the car and drag one down like a hyena. It's kinda funny, because I generally prefer seafood, chicken or pork over beef at any other time. But when I'm craving red meat, I can easily eat an entire 18 oz steak in one sitting. Cooked to rare, of course.

We go through a lot of ribeyes during shark week.

Yam Tempura Maki....so delicious! Definitely my favourite maki roll.

This sounds like me right now. I know I have iron issues, especially around shark week (cannot tell you guys how much I love this term) since being off of depo and having to go through some of the worst shark MONTHS of my life. I never crave cow so much.
I'm craving steak and salt right now. I can fix the salt thing, I just went and grabbed a huge bowl of tostitos corn chips, and a chocolate chip cookie. I'm having a really bad snacking night, like really bad. I had a salad but it satiated me 0% because it wasn't what I was craving.

After reading this thread, and this reply in particular, I got up and went and told the boyfriend that we're having steak for dinner sometime this week if I have to coax the cow home myself.

I've so been there! It's pretty bad when you drive by a herd of cattle and they look tasty

LOL! Yeah, my sister has the same metabolism and iron issues that I have, and gets the same craving for red meat. Once she was REALLY wanting some meat and complained to her husband about it. He thought about it and said, "I know! There's some turkey lunchmeat in the fridge!"

Needless to say, he ended up taking her out for dinner once the smoke cleared .

I wonder what I'm missing in my diet that has me craving sweet potatoes.

I think sweet potatoes are high in Vitamin A?

Mackenzie River Pizza. We haven't ate there since my birthday which was in September. Their Sequioua pizza is awesome. But it's not a "weird" craving. I am getting a personal pizza Friday from there. I am usually always craving a salad, too but I don't think it's weird personally. The only semi-weird craving I have right now is black licorice. I love it!
