Why Do I Have Cravings During PMS?
by Diana Walker
Dangerous Or Addictive?

While PMS cravings aren't particularly dangerous, some of the foods we eat and the
amounts in which we eat them aren't exactly healthy. Eating several candy bars for
example isn't a good idea. On the other hand, eating a bite of chocolate, or a handful
of chips won't kill you.

The key is not to let these cravings get out of control, or they can lead to weight
gain, obesity and all the health problems associated with it such as diabetes, heart
disease and certain types of cancer.

What Can I Do To Curb My PMS Cravings?

The best way to curb PMS food cravings is to give your body the serotonin it craves
without going overboard on the sugary stuff. Skip the bag of oreos and the pint of
ice cream. You can get the same craving curbing effect by eating complex carbs with
a little fat and protein in the mix to slow down the absorption of the carbs. Good
choices are whole grains, beans, lean protein like chicken and rice cakes.

Perhaps the best way to cut down on PMS cravings is to change when and how
much food you eat. Keeping your blood sugar level even is your best bet. Try eating
six small meals spread throughout the day. Each of the meals should include some
complex carbs, some protein and a little fat to keep your body satisfied and avoid
blood sugar spikes that will only lead to more cravings.

You may not be able to get rid of your PMS food cravings completely but by following
the advice above, you can manage them and gain at least some control over your
cravings.

Scientists and medical professionals
don't completely understand the
causes for PMS and the cravings that
go along with it yet. The general
consent is that hormones like
progesterone, estrogen and
testosterone are involved, as is the
brain chemical serotonin.

The fact is that many women crave
certain food, mostly chocolate,
sweets and salty / fatty foods like
potato chips during "that time of the
month".
