Every time my menstrual period is coming, I always get hungry and like to eat a lot. I don't know why I am like this. I have been eating a lot today and I crave for a lot of foods. I know that my period is coming a week from now. Are you like this also?

Its normal and believe me you aren't the only one. And you need to realize that you are losing alot of iron right now so if you crave something this may be why. I no longer have a period but when I did this was very normal. So I wouldn't worry about it. Maybe make up for it later in the month.

I crave for anything that is sweet and salty. I will eat a few chips and chocolate candies as well.

I am past that stage in my life now and loving it...however I did the same. Seemed like my body must have needed extra calories to replace what I was losing...

Yeah. And by the time my period comes, I will not eat much anymore coz I will have less appetite.

No I am not but I do have it when I take meds and I do want to eat fat food (french frites and mayo) after I have been seriously ill (mostly it has to do with my allergies). I think it's normal.. you body needs some kind of food to recover or get stronger.

Yes I'm like this too1 I always crave for something to eat especially when my period is near. Maybe it has something to do with the hormones. I also get pimples when the period is near.
