    Default Craving cashews.

    I don't know why but tonight I was craving cashews. Roasted ones. I must
    say I don't even *like* roasted cashews. In fact I usually really *dislike*
    them. But I bought a container of them, and I ate some. Can't say that I
    really liked them but they weren't bad.

    Does anyone know what I might be lacking to have such a craving? It wasn't
    a craving for salt or crunchy foods. Just specifically cashews.

    I also noticed that I am back to having fat aversions. Yes, I know there is
    fat in cashews and I think that is why I normally don't like them. They
    seem too fatty.

    But on Sunday I had a cheese sandwich and I put soft spread margarine on it.
    I really hated the margarine. I didn't like the sandwich at all and had to
    force it down. I really don't like sandwiches to begin with though. Then
    tonight I had the same kind of sandwich except that I put real butter on it.
    I thought that would make a difference. It wasn't quite as bad but I kept
    thinking how I disliked the butter. And last night I popped some corn in
    oil. I found that I couldn't eat very much of it because I just didn't want
    the oil.

    I am thinking this is not a good thing. The diet I would naturally eat by
    choice is very low in fat, to the point of almost being fat free. And I
    know that's not the way to eat. I have to make sure I have fat in my diet.
    The foods I would naturally seek out by choice would be dried beans,
    vegetables, rice, popcorn and maybe some pasta.

    Had your iron stores checked lately? Food (and even non food) cravings
    are often iron deficiency related.

    Aha! I was anemic due to a super long period, I think. The hematologist
    that I saw said I was no longer anemic when he did my labs. But in a stupid
    move on my part, I did not ask for a copy of those labs nor did I see them.
    I did call and ask that I be sent a copy. I will for sure follow up on this
    if I don't get them soon.

    I started taking new (to me) vitamins. I was taking the standard Kirkland
    adult vitamins because Consumer Reports rated them the best. However the
    last time I bought vitamins there, they no longer had that kind. Now they
    have some kind of super mega ones that contain more of things than I need.
    So I opted for the Over 50 kind but sadly there is no iron at all in them.
    Because of this I bought myself some iron tablets that contain 100% of the
    RDA for iron. I have been taking those. The hematologist said I don't need
    to supplement but I believe I do.

    My last period was very light although somewhat long. I don't think that in
    and of itself would have caused anemia. But... I have also eaten very
    little meat in the past few weeks. I did eat red meat yesterday. And I did
    eat red meat on Friday of last week. But... For the two weeks prior I
    don't think I ate any at all. And I do know I will go anemic if I don't eat
    red meat twice a week.

    I wish I could find a low dose iron pills. It was even hard to find one
    that was just 100%. Most are whopping with some weird amount like 447% of
    the RDA. I don't need that. But I think it might help if I could find some
    that were like 20% and then I could take them once or twice a week. I will
    keep looking.

    It is just hard for me to eat the red meat these days. Angela just doesn't
    like ground beef. She does get steak at Mexican restaurants. I haven't
    tried to eat steak for many years. The last few times I tried, I couldn't
    digest it. We have also really been trying to save money because my husband
    is retiring soon and has yet to find a another job. And we are trying to
    eat up the food we have in the freezer so I can defrost it. Most of what is
    in there is vegan or vegetarian. And frankly I just don't like meat very
    much. But I guess I must push myself to eat it.

    I found a powder that you mix with liquid. It is 30%. I will try taking
    half a packet twice a week. It's darned expensive though!

    I crave cashews too. I love the things. If there is a bowl of
    cashews around, I have to force myself to stop. I don't know what it
    means.

    I did a search on this and one site said it meant you were low in magnesium.
    I was low in that before. At that time I was craving tabbouli. And that
    does sound good too but there is only one store around here that makes the
    good stuff and we are not going there. I have tried to make it myself and I
    don't really like it so much when I make it.

    I am going to the health food store soon. I should have kept those bone
    pills that I had for Angela. I need to get some more of those and some
    popcorn. So I will see if they have magnesium.

    I take Magnesium Taurate - 2 a day. The one at bedtime definitely
    helps me sleep better. They are made by Cardiovascular Research. My
    doctor wants me to take them because Magnesium reduces inflammation
    and my C-reactive protein was a little high before.

    Except for fish oil, I take no supplements at all, unless you call

    I don't know if they have tested mine recently. It was borderline high some
    years ago. I got Magnesium Complex from Nature's Sunshine. They had some
    other kind but I was told it makes you poo a lot and I don't need any help
    in that department.

    Well that could be for you. When I get a craving there is always a reason
    behind it. I guess one exception could be when people bring McDonald's food
    into the dance studio. It smells good and if I see people eating the fries
    it does make me want them but that is different than a craving. A craving
    to me is a totally different level. It is something I simply HAVE to have!
    I know that I don't really like McDonald's food and it doesn't taste good so
    I would never go over and get any. Sometimes I do want French fries. Or
    biscuits and gravy. But that's merely a want. It's not a deep craving.

    I take TONS of supplements and I seem to need them all. Every time I try to
    stop taking one, the problem for which I took it crops up again. It could
    be because I have gastroparesis and because I don't digest my food well I am
    not getting all the nutrients out of it. I don't know. I did quit taking
    cayenne because it seemed to be giving me heartburn. But then I read today
    that it will do that for the first week. You just have to tough it out and
    then it won't do that any more. It's supposed to help with weight loss and
    inflammation. I also quit taking Ginkgo Biloba because it seemed to do
    nothing. And I quit taking Saw Palmetto. It was supposed to help with
    thinning hair. It didn't.

    Taking supplements just seems like a normal thing for me because my mom
    always took a ton of them and still does. She puts hers in old Nyquil cups.
    Where she ever got that many of them, I will never know! She does up two
    weeks of them at a time for herself and another two weeks for my dad,
    although his are more prescription meds than supplements. I do not
    personally believe this is a good way to do things. For one thing, those
    open tops are just an accident waiting to happen. For another, I do not
    think it is a good idea to leave the pills exposed to the air.

    I find that the supplements really do help me. Already I have lost 5 pounds
    by adding CLA back into my diet. And it is weight from around my middle
    because my pants are looser. Black Cohosh allows me to leave the house.
    Without it, my periods were so heavy that my mom was begging me to get a
    hysterectomy. I am rather anti-surgery unless there is no other choice. I
    am far less fond of prescription meds but I do like the herbs and
    supplements. This is not something I take lightly. I do my research before
    I take things.

    The magnesium taurate doesn't have that effect.

    Oops! That was a typo! I wasn't borderline high but borderline low.

    I've been saving links to job hunting sites. Would you like to post
    details on what type of job he is looking for so I can help hunt for
    such a job?

    Chlorophyll (the green coloring in plants) always contains magnesium.
    Therefore, you may want to check if your favorite dark green vegetables
    contain enough magnesium for your needs.

    He really wants to work at the VTS in Seattle (Vessel Traffic Service). Or
    a government job. I think he knows the listings. But he won't be retired
    from the Coast Guard until July.

    I can't eat much in the way of veggies due to the gastroparesis.
    Particularly the leafy ones.

    He might want to check if this site is on his list:

    http://www.usajobs.gov/

    I've also found a site specific to veterans, but I don't have it
    handy and don't know if service in the Coast Guard qualifies.
