Monthly hormonal fluctuations are a real thing that affect the female body. A healthy diet can minimize PMS but everyone is going to have issues related to hormonal shifts in varying degrees of severity.
My whole body gets bloated the week before my period. My breasts go up 1-2 cup sizes, I feel more tired then usual and my patience is lower.
Every time I get a craving to bake some chocolate chip cookies I check the calendar and 10 out of 10 times it is week before my period. It doesn't mean I have to make and eat them though. Sometimes I do, sometimes I don't depending on my willpower at the time.
You can start fresh at each and every meal, that's the beauty of it!
