I've heard of that. Like women craving laundry detergent and crazy stuff! You just have to make yourself quit, it's a battle within your mind, like an addiction. Speak with your MD and see about an appointment with a nutritionist. They can do a lot of good for you :)

Ive been eating cornstarch for over 5 years now. I also eat white dirt aka kaolin clay. Yes it is Pica but, don't feel alone. If you research on topix why do I crave clay, u will that you are not alone. Look on Youtube a lot of videos on eating cornstarch. Just finished eating Argo(my fav kind) I've eaten over 9 different brands of cornstarch.

Years ago black women working in the fields would eat handfuls of red clay dirt. They were anemic. You are probably deficient in something and your body is trying to correct it. Go to a doctor and have a blood work up. Not sure what is in corn starch that you would be needing.

I've tried crayola side walk chalk but they were colorful. It had the crunch but I didn't like the chemical taste it had. If it was just crunchy with no taste or an earthy taste I probably would eat it.

Google this and once you do u will see thousands with the exact same problem with corn starch..... U may just have to go cold turkey....apparently a lot of people say it acts like a drug and is very hard to quit also try vitamins especially iron....
