Overweight teenager Jodi Melville is obsessed to lose weight. She feels rejected by her schoolmates except Pete, who defends her. Planning to attend Lana Lang's birthday party, Jodi submits herself to a radical diet: only vegetables planted in her father's greenhouse... but with soil full of kryptonite. Jodi immediately achieves a wonderful shape, but has a huge and uncontrollable starvation and needs human body fat as the side effect, threatening whoever is closest- her next potential victim is date Pete. Clark again is forced to break his date with Lana to try to save Pete and somehow stop Jodi. Whitney tries to get back together with Lana by informing her about being accepted to Kansas State University. Meanwhile, Lex views Chloe's 'Wall of Weird' at Smallville High's school-paper The Torch, to study meteor rock mutants, and he later approaches meteor rock expert Dr. Steven Hamilton to investigate the meteor shower to determine if 'something else' came down that day.

The fat teenager Jodi Melville (Amy Adams) is obsessed to lose weight. She feels reject by most of her schoolfellows with the exception of Pete Ross, who defends her. Near to the Lana Lang's birthday party, Jodi submits herself to a radical diet, eating only vegetable planted in her father's greenhouse, but with soil full of kryptonite. Her body immediately achieves a wonderful shape, but Amy has a huge and uncontrollable starvation and need for fat as the side effect.

"Craving" is another great episode of this excellent TV series. Director Philip Sgriccia, of "Metamorphosis", balances the action with the dramatic situation of Jodi Melville, and the frustrated romance of Clark Kent with Lana Lang, and the result is one of the best episodes up to now. The special effects with the character of Jodi Melville are amazing. I liked the conclusion of this episode, when the original and unique gift of Clark Kent is disclosed. My vote is nine.
