EP95: The REAL reasons you have PMS cravings

Do you experience PMS cravings? Want to know the REAL reasons you experience them? Hormones are often to blame for PMS cravings and, sure, they play a role, BUT your lifestyle and diet ALSO influence them. ⁠A lot. 

Rising progesterone in the luteal phase can definitely increase your hunger and cause you to experience more cravings before your period, aka PMS. (Low progesterone can also cause issues in the second half of your cycle!) If you don’t have your diet and lifestyle foundations dialed in, your cravings can be soooo much worse! So what do you do?

  • Are you eating a balance of protein, carbs, fat, and fiber at every meal?

  • Do you have hormonal imbalance?
