PMS Extreme Hunger - Ask the Doctor Q & A
I believe PMS has affected my health in a negative way because during that PMS time where I feel extremely hungry, I don't really think. I don't! I just eat whatever is in front of me, or I tend to eat junk food. That can't be healthy for my heart or my weight, but I don't seem to be able to stop.
Katie, you're right, of course, eating junk food isn't healthy, and neither is eating more than you need. But plenty of women like you know this, and find the food cravings of PMS are overwhelming and irresistible. While there might be little tricks you could try to avoid succumbing to PMS cravings, I suspect you'll agree that when those urges really hit, no "trick" will work.
In my opinion, the only real solution is holistic treatment that gets at the root cause of PMS, which is hormone imbalance. I've found that the best approach is a combination of nutritional and herbal supplementation, plus an anti-PMS diet and supportive lifestyle changes, which is why I created PMS Comfort. I hope you'll take the opportunity to learn from the site, check out our programs, and email me again if you have more questions.
