    Never tasted potted meat.

    But once, after years of not eating bacon, I had to.  I mean, for a couple of months, I just craved it...I had to.

    OD'd on bacon for one meal for two, and then was okay.

    These things happen.

    If you really, really crave something, and that craving just won't go away, better to cave, enjoy it, and then go on your merry way, happily sated.

    Not to overdo, of course, but...if I want lobster, that craving won't go away until I can have lobster.  Might be two years...I will crave it the whole time.

      of telling us we are (usually) vitamin deficient.

      So the sooner you satisfy the craving the better it is for you.

      Now this only works if you have broken the advertizing spell, if you have not you crave stuff like McNuggets.

      I put the usually in there because I just had a tooth out so I'm craving crunchy things because I have the urge/craving to gnaw.

      •  Well, I agree, Horace, in general, but (0+ / 0-)

        I can't imagine anything good that I can get from bacon.

        It had, however, been years.  And I really, really couldn't get over that craving until I did an entire meal around bacon.

        Then I was okay for another couple of years.

        But I can't think of anything healthy.  I mean, healthy and bacon are diametrically opposed.
