For the last two days I have been a bottomless pit! I'm not talking about having an extra serving of cottage cheese with lunch kind of hunger. I'm talking about 3 servings of cottage cheese and half a serving of chips...after eating a lunch that would normally fill me up. It was making me crazy!!!
I know that TOM is coming, and I usually experience cravings for salty foods. I'm use to it, but having/craving/wanting/needing this
much food is not normal for me, even on my hungry days!
Google to the rescue (a habit I learned from Lunarsongbird, research!!) ! I needed to figure out why
and I found this article
. It says (in a nutshell):
"Your body uses more calories during the time right before and in some cases during your period."
Now I know why
my body needs this much food right now. The key is not to resume eating out of habit/boredom, as I use to, when the need passes.
