This is new. Craving fats?

Hey all,

So trying to get back on the good ol' bandwagon, I noticed something today. I think some sugar cravings may actually be fat cravings. With so many "low fat" foods out there, I'm wondering if you typical foodstuffs (aside from eggs and my greek yogurt) just don't have enough fat. Has anyone experienced this? Does it mean my ratios are off?

I typically eat high fat too. I find it really hard to balance fat, protein, and carbs, so that I'm not so hungry in classes all the time...

Is it just fat in general or a specific fat containing food? I'm curious because one of the things I noticed when I was trying out "safe starches" (my motivation was budgetary, but it was an interesting experiment anyway), I would crave fatty meat in the worst way. I was practically turning into Denis Leary! (If you have no idea what I mean: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z2ugVnPuSok start at 0:40 )

Everything is as it should be. Your brain needs it, your body needs it. Embrace the fat.

I used to exclusively eat egg substitutes and nonfat greek yogurt and all I ever craved was sugary sweets. Now that I've made the switch to real (effing delicious) eggs and lowfat greek yogurt, I'm starting to crave fats. I think you may not be eating enough fat.

The exams are almost finished, but I have been craving ghee and coconut oil the whole time! I'm eating tons of fat right now...
