We’ve all been there: that moment when you just need to have a burger (or a milkshake or a bag of potato chips), and nothing else on Earth will do. But why exactly do we have food cravings? And what do they mean?

It’s a popular belief that cravings are the result of nutritional shortfalls. “There is very little science-based evidence on food cravings linked to nutritional deficiencies,” says Sharon Palmer, RDN, author of The Plant-Powered Life. “And if food cravings were related to something you need, then wouldn’t you be craving kale or apples, not ice cream and French fries? Instead, people tend to crave foods that are rich in fats, carbs, and sugar.” (Especially sugar, according to a new study.)

This doesn’t mean that food cravings aren’t real. It’s just that your hankering for pizza is probably linked to emotional needs—seeking a comfort food that releases feel-good chemicals in the brain during a time of stress, for example—not nutritional ones.

Other studies show that cravings can crop up simply because you’re on a restrictive or monotonous diet and want what you can’t have.

That said, there are some cravings that really do signal health problems. Here are 5 cravings to look out for.

Water Could be: Diabetesn Excessive thirst is an early symptom of diabetes—but this isn’t just the craving for water that hits when you finish a workout. This is far more pronounced thirst that’s also typically coupled with excessive urination. If you have diabetes, sugar builds up in the blood, and your kidneys have to work extra hard to filter and absorb that sugar. But sometimes they can’t keep up, so the extra sweet stuff is diverted into the urine. This means frequent pee breaks, which in turn leave you thirsty for more water. For more

Tips For Shopping Online

1. While shopping online, be sure that the online store offers secure checkout. This helps protect your individual information from being stolen. To ensure the website is encrypted look up into your web browser's URL box. The website is secured if the website starts with https. This is short for hyper transfer protocol secure.

2. When shopping online, choose the best shipping policy. Many times companies offer expedited shipping. However, often getting the product one day earlier can cost you as much as twice the normal shipping price. Therefore, if you can wait on the product to arrive using normal shipping instead of expedited shipping, choose standard shipping to save money.

3. Always look for discount codes when shopping on the net. Many online retailers give out discounts for various things and you can find them by doing a simple search. Just type in the name from the store and coupon and you may find a great discount. This really is a great way to save money when you shop online.

4. If you are looking at purchasing from a seller the first time, take a moment to carefully examine their past customer reviews. Typically this provides you with an approximate idea of what type of goods and services you should expect yourself. Anyone who has been rated lowly time and time again needs to be given a large swerve.

5. Many online shopping sites offer discounts if you use a "discount code". These codes are easily found online simply by entering the words "coupon code" along with the manufacturer or name of the website you will be buying from. They could offer a percentage off or free shipping simply by entering within a simple code which can be easily found by investing a few minutes trying to find it.
