I don't know about everybody, but around my period 2 weeks to week before, I get these terrible intense cravings for salty and sweet. Of course, these cravings are so intense I usually give in. I was wondering, after you are sleeved, do you still have intense cravings around your period? I hoping that this will change when I am sleeved.

Sadly, my cravings for salty/sweet things are worse. I blame it on hormones, and I carb load during my ovulation week. It's like my body is preparing for a baby, and it wants to stock up on the "good stuff" LOL.

Cravings are normal. Thin people have cravings, and the sleeve isn't going to change that. It does reduce hunger, but they've operated on our stomach and our brains control cravings. The one thing I've found that gives me that salty/sweet craving are Nature Valley sweet/salty granola bars. I know they are not the best option, but it's better than funyuns and a snickers which is what I usually want. And, yes, I love to eat them simultaneously. 2 funyuns, a bite of snickers, and so on, it's gross, but it's what I crave. I've only given in once, and I felt like crap after I ate it. At least with the granola bar, I'm getting a little Fiber.

I still get PMS cravings. I agree with Tiffy that the secret is to find healthier ways to get that taste combo you crave. I'll have a square or two of dark chocolate with almonds for sweet/salty sensation. The intense dark chocolate really "speaks" to me during PMS. I also like that new line of low carb, low cal chocolate mousses made by Jello. Good way to get that choco fix.

I start a few days before my period and I want carbs. Bad. I give in a little and my weight loss will stall during that week but after my little red monster is gone, my weight drops again. I too have noticed the cravings are more intense and hard to ignore during that time.

      Got my haircut today and its always amazing how much better i feel afterwards.
      i have always considered it an odd thing that i enjoy a haircut so much.
      The smell of the barbershop (no salons allowed) and the whole scissors and clippers feel and sound is so relaxing.
      I have had the same barber since 1987 and i am not sure how i will handle it if that guy ever dares to die on me. I am pretty sure that the magazines on the bottom of the stack are the same ones from my first visit.
      just started Ron Powers -Mark Twain Biography- enjoying it

      I have to say, even more than 2 years out, it is so much easier to be good when your busy and so easy to go wrong when your bored.  Crappy weather and the wife is sick so i feel trapped in this house and i have to really watch myself.  At least the holiday leftovers are gone.
      Going to get out this week even if for only a few hours, maybe go see  Ford vs Ferrari that looks real good.
      Ok, whining over, I hope everyone is doing well and had a good thanksgiving.

        I hear ya. I notice the only time I ever "feel like eating" when I'm not actually hungry is when I'm watching TV for too long.
