If I didn't know better I would think I was pregnant. LOL! Last week I wanted poptarts. (never ate any as there were none in the house). Today it's a watermelon. I just sent my sister a text message asking her to pick one up on her way home from work after while.

Anyone else have strange cravings? Also last week after my treatment, I only wanted cold, sweet things, or creamy foods such as mashed potatoes or mac and cheese. It's kinda strange. Oh well, no one ever said this disease was "normal." Sometimes I just try to make lighter of it, just to keep myself from falling apart.

Praying for all of us daily.

Can't say if I had any certain food cravings, all I wanted was to be able to taste anything, although french fries covered with ketchup hit the spot. I couldn't taste salt.
Whatever your cravings are, eat up and enjoy!!!

sweet pickles. If I even saw the jar, I had to have some. I didn't even crave pickles when I was pregnant 30 years ago. It's over now.

Ice cream and mac and cheese. Could have eaten it for every meal for awhile. Cravings stopped after treatment ended but i still love mac and cheese!

I think for me it's the massive amounts of steroids. I get wierd cravings and they become almost obsessive thoughts. All I can think about AND THEN if I get that item, it doesn't even taste good!
Some of the usual suspects:
pizza!
chicken wings
ice pops
fresh fruit and berries
tomato and mayo sandwiches...... and the list goes on :)

I cant get enough watermelon. I also cant seem to taste chocolate or coffee any longer. I crave watermelon, corn, toast and jam, avacados, sweet pickles and macadamia nuts. I have not lost a single pound!

Susan, my sister bought a watermelon last night. Corn has been on my list. I can't imagine not being able to taste chocolate. I would eat a rock if it were covered in chocolate :)

I really do miss chocolate and coffee. I still drink my AM Joe, but it just doesnt taste the same. Chocolate doesnt taste the same either. Hoping my taste buds return to normal after chemo!

It's funny to see all the others that craved watermelon, as well. I could not get enough of it. That and I craved a cup of ice from one of the fast food places. Wendy's had the best ice. And even though I have been done with chemo for a year my tastes have really changed. I used to love breaded mushrooms and now the thought of them make my stomach queasy. I used to not drink coffee and I find myself now fighting the urge to get some.

I like the ice from Sonic. Since my surgery I have been trying to eat fish at least a couple of times each week. I would "fry" it in olive oil and sprinkle with black seasoning (usually Talipa fish). Anyway, since my second chemo treatment in July, I can't stand the texture of fish unless it's deep fried. (not good). I try to avoid fried foods when possible. It's really strange. I have never liked coffee, still no temptation there LOL!

The days immediately following my 3rd treatment, I wanted things that were cold and sweet. (yep ice cream, sherbert, smoothies, etc.) Also I wanted creamy foods like mashed potatoes and mac and cheese. I couldn't hardly stand the taste of any meats for a few days. Just really weird the way chemo effects everyone so differently.
