Just wanted to say carbohyrdrate cravings may be a sign of low serotonin and that eating high carbs (in the absence of high protein) can dramatically increase serotonin levels as the carbs make the pancreas release insulin with helps the transport of L-Tryptophan across the Blood Brain Barrier.

High protein meal with low carbs on the other hand help maintain alertness as less serotonin via the above mentioned process occurs, ie less l-trytophan is able to cross the blood brain barrier as more amino acids are competing to cross the BBB.
