    Well, although my nickname suggests otherwise, I have never had much of a sweet-tooth.

    That is, until recently. Over the past few weeks, all I can think of is chocolate bars, ice cream, maple syrup--really, anything sweet-tasting.

    I have always much preferred salty or savoury foods to anything sweet. Often after a big, tasty meal I will crave a little something sweet, but I usually can only handle a tiny bit of sugary foods--they are too rich for me.

    So, why am I suddenly craving sweet foods to such a drastic extent? Am I finally becoming a real woman? Am I somehow nutritionally deprived (I think I eat a pretty well-balanced diet, and I have a big, healthy appetite)? Am I pregnant (I want chocolate, but not chocolate-covered chicken)?
    Is this a sign of diabetes? (I hope not, cuz it runs in the family--but always starts late in life for my relatives, and they all were quite overweight and eating unhealthily)

    Hey there,
    A sign of diabetes is having to pee alot! I don't think you would have it now, but I would watch the sweets. My grandma had diabetes too, so i try not to eat too much of it.
