What does ‘start’ mean?  Your period?

Oh man, YES! I feel like a bottomless pit and want to eat everything in sight! I have discovered that TONS of water and hot tea can help curb it 🙂

I’m the same way! Right before my period I eat everything in sight. I’ve already had lunch, but I’m still craving some food :/. Thank God there’s no more of it in the office or it would be in my stomach!

I thought you meant “start” a diet.  And I was going to say yes, I always like to binge eat before I start a diet! 🙂 I want to eat all the goodies I know I’ll be deprived of for awhile! 


But if you meant the other “start,” then no.  I don’t get the munchies during that time of the month.

I would ahve to say, yes, I hit a bad-food craving overload jsut a few days before.  And during… and a day after.  Sucks for the diet.

For me it’s the opposite, I don’t want any food at all. It disgusts me to a strange level. I just want to crawl into a ball and die.

I find myself craving all sorts of things.  I try to satiate the cravings, making sure I’m getting enough protein and healthy fat – and, yes – tons of water.  I always crave red meat the week before… my body is wanting that iron!

Not when I am about to start but when I am hungover, I binge all day long!  No matter how much I eat I can’t fill the pit!  (Hopefully this won’t be considered thread jacking!)

Oh yeah, definitely me.  And I totally get the classic chocolate cravings.  So weird.

Yes. 100000000% yes. And no matter what I eat, I’m never “full”

I always want tons of sweets. Especially chocolate.

Yes! Apparently you burn 300 more calories per day during that time so it makes you VERY hungry! I try to keep things like popcorn, carrots, etc that make me feel like I’m eating something crunchy and filling with fewer calories.
