More hungry around period?



Recommended Posts

Does anyone find their hunger increases around their period? I usually don't get hungry too much. Only if I go too long without eating anything. Well, right before and during my period I find myself getting hungry all the time. Is this normal?

I've always had this problem. I get hungry every day of my period. When I was dieting, I would allow myself to eat what I wanted and skip exercise during my period days. Since surgery, I no longer do that. In fact, I'm extra careful on those days to not go over my calorie limit and go on long hikes.

This definitely happens to me. Now that I'm far enough out to experience hunger, I had a really hard time before my period limiting snacking. I never went off program, but I found myself eating more frequently and wanting carb ish foods.

Glad it's not just me! I broke 1,000 calories for first time since surgery 3.5 months ago. I have been exercising a lot more though.

Yes! I can definitely tell a difference in my appetite that time of the month.

I am experiencing this right now - feeling like a relative vacuum cleaner, but obviously not able to do the damage I used to do in the past. I do allow myself just a bit of chocolate at the end of the day during my cycle, and I know in a few days it will all be back to normal. Dang hormones!

I am experiencing this right now and was looking for answers. I even have more space for food during my period. But after its gone its back to normal. I actually have lost more weight that what I was supposed to because I found out I had Hashimoto’s after my surgery and have been treating it so I do allow myself to eat what I want during these days and I see no change in weight. I hope it doesn’t bite my a** later. 😩

      I hit my stall ALREADY 🤷🏽‍♀️ been at 300 for almost a week. I’m not worried about it though, because I know that my body is healing. I’m not in a rush, I loss 30 pounds since surgery which was 3 weeks ago. I’m just going with the flow and staying positive. 😁

        It's very common. Give your body a chance to "catch up" with its new reality and the weight loss will start again. Hang in there, I know it can be frustrating!

      First Orangetheory class back after surgery! #347 for me. Determined to take things easy- especially those ab exercises. Looking forward to hitting #350 this week.

      I loss 19 pounds my first 7 days post op 🙌🏽 (Water weight or real weight.. weight is weight to me.. I’ll take it lol) I make sure I keep my water with me 24.7 and I walk every chance I get. I cook dinner for my kids with no problems. I have zero cravings!  By next week I should be in the 200’s. Haven’t been there since high school 🥲

      Well, starting day 2 after surgery. Felling hunger pains again this morning and nausea, no vomiting. I think the hunger pains are coming from my stomach and not my pouch. Think I will call their hotline and speak with them about it. It is not terribly bad but it is uncomfortable. I do not regret getting the surgery though. I expected some discomfort right after, I just didn't expect the hunger pains.
