In brief: Reason sweets cravin
The one i believe in is the Insulin released by the pancreas after eating meal which is usually high in carb, especially complex carbs including white bread, pasta and fruits, soda and juices.
The Insulin spikes in and it causes blood sugar to drop and you crave for sweets.To prevent it cut down the carbs in your meal. The other causes are habit and programmed in brain, sice childhood.
