iVillage.com: Beat Your Worst Food Cravings

If You Crave: Burgers and Steaks

The Likely Culprit: Too Little Dietary Protein
If you don’t eat much meat, you’re on a strict diet, or you’re taking heartburn meds (which stall stomach acid production), your body could be struggling because of too little protein -- and meat cravings are a common symptom, say researchers at McMaster University, Canada. Other tip-offs: Trouble building toned, trim muscle, plus a sluggish immune system, which ramps up your risk of catching every sniffle that goes around.

Rx: Succumb! According to the National Academy of Sciences, eating 46 grams of protein daily can prevent this shortfall entirely. Their top picks: Beef, chicken, turkey, lamb and tuna, which are packed with at least 48 grams of protein per 6-ounce serving.
