Food craving. Does it indicate a deficiency?

Myth: Your food cravings suggest that you are suffering from some deficiency
Fact: There are times when you may crave for a tangy citrus fruit juice, a chocolate, or a spicy hot dog. Craving for these food items does not mean that you are suffering from deficiency of some nutrient. The fact is that a craving is just an emotion. Sometimes, a memory, or an incident may invigorate your senses making you emotional, and hence you may start craving for a particular food item.
