Hello! I've been having really strong cravings for cabbage and brussel sprouts for about a month now. (I know there are way worse things I could be craving) I'm not bingeing on them, but I know that usually when the body is craving something very strongly it's because it's deficient in a certain nutrient. Anyone have any thoughts/insight on this?

wild guess .. but i know that cabbage being a cruciferous veggie is a rich source of IC3-a phytochemical that increases testosterone levels." so maybe your Test levels are low..? Try a site where you enter your foods and it tells you all your vitamin-nutrient levels ..I use Cronometer. Be careful though because cruciferous veggies are also goitrogenic so keep that in mind especially if you have thyroid issues. As far as cravings go .. this ones for sure not so bad. Better than my chocolate cake cravings!
