Hey all, I have a question.
I noticed this week (and realized that I did it last month too) that a couple of days before my period I got hit with a nasty case of PMS, and it triggered some hard cravings -- I ended up at the store buying cheese sticks, spaghetti, and to top it off, brownies for dessert. I've been pretty good lately, but just *needed* some fatty stuff that day. I was over my goals for calories that day (yep, box of fried cheese sticks will do that) but back on plan the next. My question is, do you find yourself craving more food / different food / unhealthy food before / during your cycles, and how do you handle it? I'm not sure saying, "Well, shoot, screw it, I want this!" was the best way to do it, but I did get back on track the next day, so I'm not beating myself up. I'm just trying to get an idea of how I can better handle it next time without feeling like a raging monster for not giving in to the body's "gimme food!" urges.
