Hunger Versus Food Cravings


Your body gives you specific physical cues when it needs food. For instance, you might typically feel lightheaded when you’re hungry, whereas someone else might get irritable or get a churning sensation in the stomach. In general, real hunger tends to carry a sense of urgency; your body has to have something – almost anything – right away.

A craving, on the other hand, is more of a desire for a specific food. If you’re telling yourself, “I’ll feel better if I eat a chocolate bar,” you’re probably experiencing a craving. People who eat a healthful, well-balanced diet tend to have fewer cravings.
