Speak Up: What's Your Crazy PMS Craving?

Recently I asked you about your favorite healthy snacks, and I was happy to see so many of you respond. Personally, I try hard to eat healthy most of the time, but when PMS strikes, it's hard for me to stay on track. I end up craving everything sweet and salty.

So now I want to know about your fattening, greasy, creamy, fried, sugar-coated, chocolate-covered PMS cravings. What foods call your name when it's that time of the month? Tell me in the comment section below.

I have serious cravings for red meat; nothing like a burger to put me into a good mood!

This month, it was Sweethearts. Around Easter, it's jelly beans and Cadbury eggs. It's gonna be a rough few weeks.

I crave anything & everything. At one moment - a few days ago I craved a latte, hot chocolate, coke, orange juice, wedges, a chicken cheese & avocado sandwhich, wholemeal toast! was strange!! haha! I crave everything & its always different. If I were to have a junk night it would be sweet, savoury, sour all at once! Id hate to think how bad it would be if I were to become pregnant! I used to be able to turn off everything but I allow myself to have little taste test of everything in small doses to keep that craving at bay! I find that works the best! I

Carbs!!! Snack foods like cookies, crackers, ect. I try to find "healthier" versions at stores like Whole Foods and Mothers and it doesn't make me feel as guilty.

when I'm feeling bad in anyway I crave french fries and chips. As if I need any more bloat right? I've also craved red meat a lot in the past and hamburgers or beef jerky was all that could satisfy me.

last month, my husband stopped off at the local bakery (per my pleading request) and picked me up this insane combination of chocolate chip cookies and icing called a Dreamy Pie. Heaven. Also, deep dish pizze (I'm in Chicago!)

definitely something chocolate... but not just hard chocolate. i wish it was just plain chocolate because then i could soothe my cravings with a good dose of dark chocolate (with antioxidants!!)... but alas... i crave something with texture. my favorite is an ice cream sandwich that's starting to melt... mmm!
