According to author Denise Minger of Raw Foods SOS, a craving for red meat signifies an iron deficiency. Because the body is lacking iron, it craves the iron in red meat. Minger suggests eating leafy greens or sea vegetables with foods high in vitamin C to enhance iron absorption and stop red meat cravings.
