How do you curb the dreaded PMS cravings? These hormones are killing me!

Real chocolate has many benefits. It has a fair amount of minerals too. Go for the darkest ones with the highest cocoa (or cocao) content, not milk chocolate. It its the processing of the chocolate that ruins its nutritional benefits. You can even find dark chocolate bars with berries, nuts or coffee beans mixed in. Delicious!

Yeah, its really terrible. Even after i ate my meal, i tend to eat more.. and also i crave for sweet food. What i do is CONTROL myself. Sorry,i dunt know.. not an expert.. hehe..

If I'm craving sweets, I go for something pickled instead.. it takes the urge to eat sweets away, at least for me :-) plus a pickle/ pickled pepper, etc. Has far less calories so its an added bonus to keep you focused away from the sweets.. anything pickled generally contains a high amount of sodium tho, so don't go overboard!! And always remember to stay hydrated!! Even when not eating pickles :-)

You crave because you need it around that time! Just pay attention to WHAT you are eating...

I really crave for chocolates and pizza every time. Weird hormones. I try to drink lots of water hoping the cravings will go away but to no avail :(

Have chocolate dipped fruit...dark chocolate if you can. Or put a few chocolate chips in a whole grain pancake. It's okay to have sweets as long as you don't overdo it. I have a small piece of cheesecake or tres leche all the time because I crave them. There are ways.

O yeah, why didn't I think of that? :)))) thanks big time!!!

Don't completely avoid what you're craving  it'll just make the craving worse.  Try to find an alternative (something sweet,  try fruit,  etc).  If that doesn't work then have what you're craving but in moderation.  If you want chocolate,  have one piece of dark chocolate and put the rest of it out of sight so you don't keep eating. Drink more water to keep you full and find something to occupy yourself so you're not thinking about it. And most important,  that one little piece of chocolate or whatever it is you had is not going to ruin everywyouve worked for so far, so don't make yourself feel guilty cause then you'll just want more.

Technically when humans crave sweet things, we are craving the sugars out ancestors found in fruits. So if you must have something sweet, your body is probably looking for that along with the other good stuff found in fruit but not so much desserts and candy.

What i do is buy the Special K chocolaty delight and eat it dry. A 3/4 cup is 120 calories. Half the serving is 60 calories!
