sounds weird - you definitely don't want an upset tummy
i'm not usually one to zombify threads, but i googled "milk cravings" and this was the most useful thing to come up (surprise!).
this is not a transient thing for me: i've had milk cravings for as long as i can remember. when i was a teenager i would wake up in the middle of the night, and the only way to get back to sleep was to get up and drink milk. i remember sneaking around friends' kitchens in the middle of the night, trying not to wake the parents, and drinking milk out of the carton. yep, out of the carton, in other peoples' houses. hey - i was 14.
i've never deprived myself of milk, ever, so it's not that. but i've begun to realize that if i don't have milk, i just don't feel right. yesterday, i was kind-of twitchy and restless and feeling like i needed something all day (and i probably overate because of it), and it wasn't until bedtime that i realized i ran out of milk on thursday, and that was the problem.
my bones are strong. i've had one major break (tib-fib) at 16 and a few minor ones (toes), but when my 1300 pound horse fell on my thigh, i only got a bruise (a bad bruise, but still). type-II diabetes seems highly unlikely.
any thoughts (other than get your ass to the grocery store and buy milk, which i will do)?
milk is good. dont fight it.
women dont drink enough milk
tryptophan is an amino acid in milk that has a very calming effect. It is most likely you were twitchy or restless without it. It also means that possible you have developed a dependancy on it and experience withdrawl symptoms (twitchy restless etc) without it. Such as people getting headaches without their morning coffee, without the opening effects of blood vessels caffein offers. But id say its a good dependancy to have. milk rules. i craved it today, drank about 3 liters. its also amazingly good after a night of drinking. the fat and properties calm you and make you feel better, and it rehydrates you. GO MILK!!!!!!
I've been told that having a craving for milk might mean that you're anemic. Try eating a lot of iron-rich foods and see if it helps the cravings a bit.
