I have found that when I eat fewer processed foods and workout regularly, I feel fewer symptoms of that time of month.
When I was not walking on a regular basis and eating anything and everything, I was crabbier and craved chocolate worse than I do now. I may never have been as bad as some women may be, but I would snap at everyone and appear crabby for days. A nap would be needed on the first day every month to get through the day. I would know something was up for about 3 days before the grand appearance.
Now, and for about the last 6 months or more, I may be a little tired, but I'm not extremely crabby nor do I have intense desires for chocolate (although I did have some Nutella). I actually have more energy and I rarely snap at anyone. I'm surprised when that time of month shows up, I am not feeling the symptoms of the hormones dropping until Aunt Flo shows up.
When I start eating chocolate, I tend to need more chocolate, but if I stick to fruits and good foods, I don't even crave the chocolate.
So instead of binging on all the sweets I would normally have at that time of month, I'll just stick to a healthy variety of foods and a good workout. My hormones must be in better balance when I do.
