Most of the time I can keep my cravings under control.  I always remind myself to drink a large glass of water first, and then wait  awhile  to see if I am still hungry.  Most of the time I can get distracted and forget about a craving or have something small (100 calories) to satisfy a craving. 

However, I still can't get myself trained to avoid those strong cravings and wanting to snack during TOM.  I try REALLY hard just to have a healthy snack but my hormones just will not allow it!  I know I can try harder but it never fails that I overeat and usually with junk food during TOM.  I crave dill pickle chips and chocolate.  I know!  Pure junk food with no nutritional value.  I don't go crazy with cravings and snacks during TOM like I did in the past, but it is still a real challenge for me.  I don't won't to blow all of my hard work over some hormonal changes. 

Ugh... I don't know maybe some day I will find a way to conquer those cravings.  I do substitute some for what I am craving but I eventually end up eating what I wanted in the first place.


  1. I know it is so hard - especially during that time of the month. I still get them although most of the time I resist. Do you allow yourself a planned "crave" food to help you through? That sometimes helps. Take care and stay strong!

  2. It's so hard to resist especially if you really crave for it. But if you have that desire to lose weight then I think you should start motivating yourself to avoid unhealthy foods. However, do not do this drastically as you might end up eating the foods you were craving for. Try incorporating healthy foods that mixes well to your cravings. Like there are lots of clean and healthy chocolate recipes out there that you can make yourself.

  3. Yes, I do need to work on some healthier snacks to satisfy those pesky cravings.
