COURTNEYB9, it's a myth that PMS causes binges. Scientists studied women all over the world, and they found that only Western (specifically American) women had cravings and mood swings before their period. It doesn't happen in the rest of the world at all.
So, that's how I fight my food cravings and desires to binge around that time of the month...I recognize that there isn't any sort of strange, internal, chemical reaction that is forcing me to eat french fries. What's actually happening is that my craving for french fries is ALWAYS there, hiding in the background, and when my period is about to happen, I allow that craving to take control of me...because I have the excuse of PMS.
Just treat this like every other binge. It has no magical qualities. It's JUST a binge. The best way to deal with those is to simply stand up, brush the dust (or crumbs) off, and keep moving forward.
