So, I'm starting the cycle again which happens 3-4 days before I start my period. I have really bad periods accompanied by really bad PMS. I want to eat everything in site, all day long. It doesn't help that I feel so miserable and tired that I don't hardly move around on these days. I crave (as in pregnant crave but I'm not pregnant) chocolate, chips, and Coke/Mountain Dew. Vegetables and fruit actually make me feel worse so that is out. Then comes my period which puts me in bed for 2-3 days. So, I basically don't move for about a week while eating horrible things. First, does anyone know why this happens? Second, how can I fix this (I do not have access to birth control pills to regulate my hormones)? Thanks for any advice.

It is quite normal theses want to eat everything in sight once a month. Even though no more periods it still happens to me every once in a while. Over time I started craving healthy stuff but the junk craves when they happen are just terrible.

Weight Gain?
Maybe switch it up a bit. There are different things to do. Have a off keto day, Eat high calories, and then later do some fasting.

What can I put in my coffee?
I'm trying to keep my sugars down, but love flavored coffee creamers. Any creative ideas for low-sugar things I can put in my coffee to sweeten it up?

stopped tracking years doesnt have to be forever
I stay pretty steady since being on maintenance for a number of years. I tend to track occasionally just as check up on myself.

New Study suggests a metabolic advantage for low carb diet
Ah, you deleted that comment. Anyway, I never claimed it was simple. I've struggled for 18 years with it. I think I finally have it down. :)
