Burgers: Juicy, red meat is packed with iron, protein, and zinc. Women in particular suffer more frequently from iron deficiency, which then awakens the desire for red meat. Or maybe you just need a lot of protein since you’ve been using a lot of energy lately. © Bernd Juergens/Imago

Sweets: If you are feeling tired, drained and weak and at the same time have a craving for sweets, you should check your blood sugar levels. If it’s too low, your body tries to get quick energy in the form of sugar. © Sandrine Mulas/Imago

Ice Cubes: There is a name for the irrepressible urge to chew ice cubes: pagophagy. Mental disorders can be at the root of this, but far more often those affected are simply very stressed and use chewing ice cream as an outlet. An iron deficiency could also be the reason. © Marcel Lorenz/Imago
