    I used to crave salt and sweets until I started eating low carb. Once I got all the sugar cravings out and it regulated my hormones, I don’t have cravings at all anymore and PMS is almost non-existant now.

    Chocolate! Only during period and whenever I actually indulge it gives me the worst cramps.  It’s a vicious cycle but I never learn my lesson! Lol

    ANYTHING AND EVERYTHING SWEET. NUMBER 1 BEING CHOCOLATE BUT NOT PLAIN CHOCOLATE, IT HAS TO BE IN SOME FORM OF “CANDY” LIKE TWIX BARS OR M&M’S

    Is this a thing? I don’t crave anything personally, I just eat the same foods as always.

    OmbreBee:  I always, without fail, crave meat (like a 16oz burger or 12oz steak – Haha). Just once though during PMS/my cycle & I’m good. Could be because of anemia. Besides that one craving during that time, I’m good with sticking to my normal healthy diet. But boy do I become a carnivore and want a giant slab of meat!

    OmbreBee:  It is funny you mention that you go for chocolate and cheese – those are my things. My local pizza shop gets multiple calls from me during my period week as they serve a garlic/cheese pizza and a chocolate cake slice to DIE FOR! 

    During my period I could basically eat a small pizza like that every single day with a side of chocolate… it really doesn’t help with my new diet!

    OmbreBee:  Well, when it’s not EVERYTHING, it’s chocolate. So cliche but definitely chocolate.

    I want sweets and cheesey carbo loaded stuff right before my period. Once my period hits I want meat. I could seriously eat a steak for every meal the first day of my period. And salt too. Soooooo much salt. I once ate a cheeseburger on a salt bagel when I had my period.
