My Period Makes Me Hungry

Has anyone else ever experienced this?

I can always tell when my period is coming, not just because I started the inactive pills on the birth control, but because I get so hungry. It usually starts the weekend before my period starts. Usually I can go 5 hours between breakfast and lunch with just a light snack, but I can't do that when this happens. When I feel hungry, I don't just feel hungry, I feel like I am starving. The day my period starts or the day after this feeling goes away.

Re: My Period Makes Me Hungry

It's probably your body gearing up for the blood loss. Try high fiber/high protein combinations and get plenty of iron [through natural sources].

Look for : whole wheat bread; high fiber cereals; lean red meats; wild rice.
