    1
    I assume that food cravings are often caused by nutritional deficiencies, and have been wondering since I started craving bananas and sushi a week ago, whether I have a problem.  I have started eating potato chips instead, mostly for the salt, and because I don't usually eat them, they have been sitting in the cupboard since forever.  Is it possible that I need potassium, or iodine, or...

    Fasting for Health
