What causes weird food cravings?

What explanations are there for strong food cravings, other than pregnancy or PMS? Specifically, I am having out-of-control lemon cravings.

The chances that I am pregnant are very, very slim, and if I were (and I'm not), it would only be a couple weeks along; too early for cravings, I'm told. Also, I don't really care for lemons. These cravings are absolutely new, but have been constant for about ten days. They are so strong that there are times I literally cannot think about anything else but getting my next fix. Is my body just being wacky, or are these cravings symptoms of something more sinister?
