It's time to kick the confusion and guilt of being hangry with period cravings to the curb! There is a hopeful light at the end of the cookies 'n cream ice-cream aisle - I mean, tunnel - where you can bring harmony to two seemingly opposing forces: your troublesome PMS Food Cravings and your Weight Loss Journey.


You probably know the pain in the a$$ of working hard to eat and train on point for 3 weeks of the month, only to go Godzilla for a week and possibly destroy any progress you've made!

Do you know when your Aunt Flo is coming to town for her visit? If so, you can use this knowledge to work to your benefit! By becoming aware of your start/end dates, your cravings and tendencies, as well as the (hardly spoken of, yet should be) basic understanding of how your period works, you will be able to design an action plan to progress in your weight loss journey.

The first step is to stop feeling guilty for going through the organic rollercoaster of womanhood. Be easy on yourself, because what you, and many other woman, experience is valid, justified and backed by science, sis.

The cravings (specifically) for carb-dense foods, sweet treats and intense hunger pangs are totally normal and actually have a purpose in what's happening during this time.

Be Aware: If you experience compulsive eating outside your ovulation stage, not sure if it's PMS or pregnancy or any abnormal irregularities, please consult a doctor or health care professional.

The Cravings Culprits: All of this happens 7-10 days before your period starts.
