Oprah's Dr. Oz on cravings
According to Dr. Oz, Oprah's medical guru du jour, there's a connection between specific emotions and types of food.
Meat could mean you’re angry
Sweets might be a sign of depression
Ice Cream might mean you’re anxious
Salty snacks could mean you’re stressed
Pasta might signal loneliness
Does the above ring true for anyone?
They make sense about 3.5/5 for me.

what a bunch of balogna.
I was going to leave it at that, but I didn't want to be accused of being - well, whatever it is that people are accused of being when they say something like that! : ) I really just think that people crave food for a million different reasons. That kind of theory sounds like something you'd find on one of those paper flippy things I made in the 4th grade to find out who I was going to marry.

You spelled bologna wrong. And when using it as slang, it's more appropriate to use the colloquial "baloney." But I digress...
Interesting theory. Most of those ring true for me too. I like Oprah's Dr. Oz a lot and have learned quite a bit from him.

Who is Dr. Oz? I've been seeing him all over the place. Is he the new "dr. Phil" but for health?

wellll... i used to get "cravings" all the time which after a lot of self-reflection i figured out were just unpleasant feelings i didn't want to feel. my manifestation doesn't quite match the dr. oz list but the idea that cravings = feelings rings true for me.
ie: lonliness = chocolate, cookies = anger

Not valid for me.. I'm neither stressed nor anxious. I'm plain bored most of the time when I binge and I would crave different things going through the same boredom or just coz I crave for no reason.
I agree with the 9.51pm poster

i keep picturing some tiny man, sstanding on a step stool, peeking out from behind a curtain in the pantry, looking over the kitchen and the evening's dinner, giving advice...funny image...
