Is it normal to struggle with diet while on your period?

I feel like eating all kinds of sweets. It's so hard to work out when you have painful cramps all day long and my periods are really heavy so there's a constant risk of bleeding through. All this lasts 7-9 days. How do I keep my diet up during it? Am I just a loser with no self control? (Yeah don't answer that one haha)

  • Totally normal to crave sweets. You're not a loser for giving into them. I can't help, but eat more during that time either.

  • Well yeah. Cravings are a symptom of PMS and MS.

  • Yes, the rush of hormones will often cause mood swings and cravings. Totally normal.
