Through her own addiction to chocolate and with the assistance of a nutrition expert, Dr. Nan Fuchs discovered the connection between chocolate cravings and a lack of magnesium. This caused her to want to understand the physiological and emotional reasons for food cravings, and her belief that it has nothing to do with willpower. Some food cravings are for sugar, salt or anything greasy. But these cravings are the body's way of communicating that it is lacking something or under stress.
Dr. Fuch's most recent book is The Health Detective's 456 Most Powerful Healing Secrets. She is also the editor-in-chief of the online magazine Women's Health Letter.
