My last question for today.
I have noticed that my food cravings have changed dramatically after SIBO recovery.
Cravings while having SIBO:
dairy and creamy desserts
bread/things made with dough like pies, pancakes
fruit, especially persimmons, grapes, bananas, something sweet
Cravings now, after SIBO is gone:
meat (I crave meat more than anything else)
cheese, but not all. Recently it has been emmental. I do not crave any other type of cheese.
pecans (I don't want any other nuts, only pecans)
oranges (only oranges, no other fruit)
But I crave meat the most.
Why such a drastic change? Why do I crave meat all the time?

Mineral deficiency comes to mind. Iron is an obvious one. But what about zinc?
BTW, I have been thinking something similar ... I got back on my SIBO protocol a few weeks ago. I fall off all the time ... I just want blueberries! Anyhoo, the past 2 days I have been craving cheddar cheese. I haven't eaten cheese in 3 years. In 2 days I've gone through a block of it. Fat could be it, but I think I'm eating plenty of fat. I'm going to pay for it in about a week with zits, but I'm loving the cheese right now.
