Does anybody else get the urge to eat constantly when your on your period? Almost like your pregnant, just everything sounds and tastes so good.

    Yeah, it's never fruit and veg I crave, it's chocolate and sweeties and things that I crave.

    Although in the last few days I have been craving fruit and veg. Which is good.

    I go through phases of both, and neither seems to be linked to my cycle - just totally random.

    Some days I'm like 'fucking hell that dehydrated broccoli looks good', and then others you could dangle a cheesecake in front of me and I really wouldn't fancy it (or anything) at all.

    It's not ideal, but as long as I don't lose my appetite for too long at a time, it all balances out.

    It's chocolate mainly for me :(

    The first day bread becomes absolute poison for me. Some months I only need smell bread and I feel sick. I often don't eat very much that first day.
    After that everything gets pretty much normal. Doesn't mean I don't use it as an excuse to buy chocolate though. ;)

    I always want 'healthy' foods when I'm ovulating, even if I look at an advert for junk food, I feel quite queasy. Just before and during my period, I could happily eat stodge until it comes out of my ears.

    yes yes yes - well for about 3 days before my period I just think about food CONSTANTLY and am barely finished one thing, before im craving something else. I get quite upset with my lack of control at those times.
