OK... So, I've been thinking I was REALLY strange (most know that I am.. but I have been thinking even stranger than normal... )..

Every time I open the fridge.. I think.. mm.... italian dressing.. wonder if I could drink that! (its fat free ceasar).. and.. NO.. I havent drank any.. but I think about it every time..

So.. this has been happening for about a week... last night.. I had dill pickles for dinner.. THEY WERE SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO good.. never had a pickle taste that good.. even thought about drinking the juice.. but.. the minute I had those pickles.. the weird italian dressing thing stopped...

So.. I'm telling Carrie about this on the phone.. and she has the same issue! Says she never liked italian dressing before.. not puts it on lots of stuff... and loves pickles now too... and we laughed about it.. and thought... yep.. we're sisters...

THEN.. I was telling RoseAnn about it.. and she said she has been having the same issue.. with the vinegar stuff...

HOW BIZARRE IS THIS??? so.. heres my question... does anyone else have a vinegar craving they just have to fill sometimes??? Maybe this is some weird GBP side effect?

Yup...I went on a pickle binge for a while. Last 2 days I feel like I could eat anything in the fridge and tasted a few things...ended up in the pickle jar.

I think its a change in the body and I think we need salt..so pickles would be one way to get it. Nice thing is we don't need massive amounts of food to satisfy the craving..Bonus!

Yep, they still taste so good!! What I have noticed is that I crave things with a lot of flavor...the more intense the flavor the better.

OH OH OH... I had major blue cheese cravings starting about 4 weeks out from surgery. I ate it on everything for a few weeks and then it passed.

Our group here at the hospital was just talking about this same thing yesterday at lunch. Three girls had been having intense pickle cravings. I had commented that just in the last two weeks I have been wanting my food to be a lot more spiced up and even having to add salt, (which is something I NEVER used to do). And everyone talking about pickles has really got me wanting some. I have not tried any yet, but I will be stopping on the way home to pick up some Vlasik Dills. I want to add them to my favorite veggie treat of cutting up cucumbers, tomatoes and black olives into chunks and adding a little bit of creamy italian dressing. Yummmm, I am thinking if I add the pickles and some juice I wont even need the dressing. We all decided it was because of all the exercising and extra water drinking that we have been doing, in the hot Texas weather (103 yesterday), we are just needing more salt these days.

Jen...I know what it is. It's just that you are so gosh darn sweet that your body is seeking a little sour for balance...:rolleyes:. Seriously tho...since Italian dressing started this whole thing, I wonder if it's some sort of pH balance thing. Oh, and by the way, thanks for the craving. Now I want some antipasto salad.

Oh, and I also think we need to start a new game...I can get that post from start to booty in ______ posts. What d'ya think?

Hey guys - this is the pickles and ice cream thing - vinegar allows you to absorb calcium better I've been told. And when I was pregnant, couldn't get enough of them. Sauerkraut too. Weird.

I have been told this vinegar and calcium thing for years. No one else has heard of it??

Could be a load of croc for all I know.
