About a week before AF is due to show up do any of you feel the constant need to eat lol?

About a week before AF shows up i absolutely pig out its not doing me any harm as im underweight anyway but thats not the point i cant seem to fill up on anything i eat just constantly hungry, i mean i had a huge tea tonight at about 6 and im completely starving again:O

i always seem to crave the same thing every month too which would be dominoes pizza with the garlic and herb sauce awww yumm lol Very Happy

Its the progesterone falling and Oestrogen rising that triggers it, for most women they either crave carbs or sugar ,so pizza,crisps and chocolate would be normal cravings Laughing
The best way to try and stave it off is supposed to be eating complex carbs that fill you up more , so lots of wholegrains and avoid the chocolate (easier said than done) as the sugars can make the cravings worse because it causes sharp rises and falls in blood sugars Rolling Eyes
Saying all that i have been known to eat a full family size bar of dairy milk to myself just before AF Embarassed so i just make sure I don't have stuff like that in now so I can't eat it Laughing xx

Knowing what causes it doesn't help me not do it either Laughing thats why I just don't buy stuff I know I will eat now Laughing
I'll have a bowl of cereal if I get the sugar cravings and that calms it down for a coule of hours Laughing , if I gave in to my cravings some months I'd put about 5 or 6 lbs on and then have to starve myself the other 3 weeks to lose it again Rolling Eyes Laughing xx
