I have been craving chicken and turkey a lot lately, to the point that I'm getting 200g protein some days. I have salmon daily as well but the cravings seem to be mostly non-seafood.
Could this have have anything to do with alcohol consumption or being around smoke (I've been going out a lot more)? Maybe my body is craving protein to repair itself.
Or maybe since alcohol is a depressant, my body is craving the tyrosine/phenylalanine in chicken to produce more dopamine?
Any intelligent thoughts would be appreciated.

Why am I craving chicken?------------------------
"Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?" Jesus replied: " 'Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.' This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: 'Love your neighbor as yourself.' All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments." Matthew 36-40

hmm...psychologically speaking, maybe you conditioned your senses to relate the taste and consumption of chicken to something "positive" that happened to you while eating it?..(just my two pennies) ^_^
