Had really bad cravings for meat the other day and..........................
felt like I wanted to eat a piece of meat really really badly.
That is all I could think of all day and i was in a really bad mood, and felt like i was going to go crazy.
I just went vegan on the 23rd, but was on a faily strict diet prior to this , i omitted eggs a month prior, and meat before that, and was on reduced milk.
OK, so I had some b12 1000 IUs in the cupboard but I haven't started taking them yet.
So I didn't know what to do because i felt terrible , tired , and if it was b12 I was told it could be years before you need to supplement.
Well, I took one before i went to bed, i decided NOT to eat the meat.
The next morning I took another one, and went to work and felt better.
That was a few days ago, and i have been taking b12 and have had NO cravings for meat.
Was is a b12 deficiency???
I believe so, just decided to take care of it myself, without going to the doctors.
(BTW, I also was taking multi-vitamins that I have left (not vegan) and the have 25UI in them, but I don't think that is enough)
