Does anyone else get ravenous just before their period?

I do, maybe every three times. I crave meat and can eat and eat (and eat!)

All I want to eat is bread, meat and chocolate! I try to choose apples though. But have demolished 3 in a row before.

Hormones must be the cause?

yes and i want all the carbs. Happens every month and always has since my periods started

Yes! I was absolutely starving last week. It gradually eases off once I'm on though. I wonder why it happens?

Absolutely, I crave food just before my period then once it starts my appetite dips totally!

Yes craving for food and eating anything can get hands on along with sore boobs is sign period is due within a week usually.

Every cycle, 48 hours before my period would start, I get the most extreme cravings for cheeseburgers. Nothing else will do, and like clockwork, 2 days later , there's my period.

Me too

I could attack a pile of steaks right now :/

It's the second day of my period for me. I can't stop eating. I totally forgot off food the day before and the first day.

Its the only time I ever crave red meat.

Also crave carbs and comfort foods BIG time.

My period is due this week and I had egg and chips for dinner last night. I just had to grin

I am due at the weekend. For the last couple of days I have been chowing down sugar and carbs like a fucking fiend.

It always happens.

Yes! I think it's because your body knows it's gonna lose blood so it has to make some more from food to make up for the loss of it. That's why it's making you hungry. Smart body, well done!

Uumellmahaye Tue 17-Oct-17 13:59:23

Yes! It's like a switch flicking on and I find myself at the patisserie bulk buying cakes and pastries

MrsPinkCock Tue 17-Oct-17 14:03:09


I need all the carbs and all the wine!

DaisyRaine90 Tue 17-Oct-17 14:07:50

Yes! It’s chocolate 🍫 and wine 🍷 night (plus freezer food, crisps, sweets sometimes too).

Oh and game strongest painkillers I can get over the counter.
I don’t deal with period pain well and get really long, heavy painful periods.

On the mini pill now so hopefully they’ll stop or get shorter/lighter. The Gynaecologist thought it would help


I don’t have much sugar in my diet, but my period makes me bonkers. I get PMT and pain when I ovulate mid month too x

duckduckmouse Tue 17-Oct-17 14:25:25

Yes and I wish I didn't

amusedbush Tue 17-Oct-17 14:26:44

Yes, usually a few days before. I'm ravenous and nothing satisfies me - I could eat and eat all day and still be hungry!

Then it arrives and my appetite goes completely. Cramps, constipation, insomnia, night sweats... fun times all round! hmm

MrsJayy Tue 17-Oct-17 14:29:39

Yes and it is always salt and carbs so obviously crisps or crackers is what i munch on it is very strange because once i start my appetite goes 😕

neighbourhoodwitch Tue 17-Oct-17 14:30:59

Yes. Hideous & uncontrollable! Definitely hormonal...

Juanbablo Tue 17-Oct-17 14:34:08

Yes! It's horrible really but I get completely ravenous and furious.

Whippetmamma Tue 17-Oct-17 14:36:15

Yep! Always red meat or carbs!! Could destroy an entire pasta bake all to myself 😋

BikeRunSki Tue 17-Oct-17 14:39:54

Totally. Carbs and really strong cheese!
