I would also encourage a trip to your medical provider. If you have lost weight to the point of stopping your period, that suggests you might be too low for your body type, weight, height and age. Restricting calories to reach that could be the cause of the food cravings. Your medical provider and/or a Registered Dietitian/Nutritionist can conduct an assessment to not only evaluate the health of your weight loss journey but to also help you find a healthy weight. Here are few articles from our site that I would encourage you to give a few minutes to reading/reviewing.

I agree maybe the doctor would be a great first step. Then I would suggest incorporating some smaller snacks into your day so you're not as hungry at night time. Good luck!

If you haven't already done so, a trip to the doctor would probably be in order, just to check on things. If you're feeling out of control about your eating, perhaps some counseling or a few visits with an RD as well?

I had been overweight most of my life until I came across portion control. Instead of breakfast, lunch and dinner, have five sub-meals - that would be breakfast, brunch, lunch, mid-afternoon snack and then dinner. Brunch can be some fruits/nuts, while mid-afternoon snack can be grilled chicken sandwich with low-fat cheese. Ensure your meals are balanced diet and avoid fried food and carbonated drinks. If you get proper nutrients, your body will feel satisfied and you won't binge eat at night. Make sure you don't eliminate fats from your diet. You need to incorporate healthy fats into your diet like avocado and nuts.

The GAPS (gut and psychology syndrome) protocol is really helpful for healing the gut and restoring nutrients into your body. I highly recommend it!

Hi all! in an eleven month span I lost roughly 25 pounds. However, my weight went too low- even to the point where I stopped getting my period. I started having ridiculous food cravings and have been binge eating more and more frequently. My weight keeps creeping up. A typical pattern for me is where I eat super healthy during the day and eat way too much junk at night. I feel as if my body is getting more and more screwed up. I never feel good and still haven't gotten my period back. Any ideas on how to get back on track would be greatly appreciated- Thanks!
