I do crave protein too. But my biggest craving is carrots. I eat around 20 lbs. a month. just munching away on raw carrots.

Haha, 2 lbs Russel? I thought I was doing good, generally get a pound to pound and a half. But I also get a good portion of my protein through dairy.

There are times when i'll nuke one of those "family" sized bags of steamable broccoli or brussel sprouts and eat that. I always feel better the next day. I know that over thanksgiving as much as I was loving the home cooking, a meal of a quart sized bowl of veggies and 12 oz grilled chicken breast would have hit the spot. Midwest family, so many carby sides. I love them, but I'll need to eat a little different when I'm home for 3 weeks over Christmas.

I have always loved meat, and eat 2 lbs a day of it still.

What has changed is my love of veggies. Sometimes I will just sit down and eat 3-4 cups of vegetables in a bowl. Like I used to do with cereal.

Definitely crave protein. Although I used to crave cookies and cakes, when I was really hungry only protein would do even before I started working out. Now, if I don't get protein at every meal, I am constantly hungry and wanting to snack all day.

I crave protein all the time. Especially, if I'm on the road or out of town for a few days and eating mostly junk (happens whenever we visit BFs family, they are not healthy eaters at all), I find myself by the end of it craving a nice roasted chicken with some fresh green beans and roasted rosemary potatoes.

If I have over indulged in unhealthy foods, I know I end up craving big piles of lean meat and fresh vegetables!

I'm with you- all I want is proten all the time. I love chicken and quinoa and eat both constantly, but lately I've been having crazy cravings for peanut butter. That stuff is crazy high in calories so I really monitor it but it's like it calls to me from the kitchen. ;) I'm with ya on the protein cravings, though. I work out a lot so I think that explains it.

I used to have late night craving for cake and candy. Now that I have been eating more healthy and working out, my cravings are for meat. Chicken, steak, and pork, has anyone noted any changes in what they want to eat?

Weight is the result of what you have been doing for the past week.
