Period munchies

Recommended Posts

Ok, I had my surgery August 12th 2014 so I am almost 6 months post op. I have lost about 85 lbs so far so that is great but it seems that around my period I crave things I shouldn't eat. The Sweet and the Salty. I do very well all of the rest of the month. Have any of you guys had this problem and how or what do you do to stay on track?

The last few months have been pretty rough and my weight loss has slowed. I lost my mom the day before Thanksgiving and since she was in hospice the last few weeks before I got out of the habit of going to the gym as often. Guessing I could just use some encouragement. :)

Thanks for looking at my post and thanks ahead of time for the help!

So sorry for the loss of you're mother.

Sweet and salty cravings I have even without having a period. I satisfy the craving with healthier options. If I deprive myself the cravings increase. So I nip it in the bud.


strawberries(any fruit) dipped in smuckers sugar free chocolate fudge or caramel topping (valentines day must have). yogurt (light n fit greek) is always a go to for the Protein. But I have a specific desert that I make that I take a few bites and I'm done.

Crush one voortman chocolate chip cookie in a small bowl

top the cookie with a teaspoon of smuckers sugar free caramel

top that with sugar free vanilla pudding mix with added Peanut Butter

chop a Russel stover toffee square and nuts add to the top.


I don't know why these work for me..But again just suggestions

Scrambled eggs, Salsa, re fried Beans, chicken fajitas, turkey chilly and Eggplant with chicken sausage Parmesan.

      I saw the post where you were denied the first time because you lost to much weight.  How much did you lose?  I lost 1 # my 2nd month and 6# my third month and scared to death I have screwed up.

        I lost 11% of my body weight and they wanted me to fail to lose 10%. I even called the insurance company and asked them to clarify because the wording was confusing. I didn't know if they wanted me to lose the 10% or fail to lose the 10%. I was told to lose 10% so I did and apparently the person that I spoke to wasn't correct. But also this was in December and my company was scheduled to change to a different division of BCBS after the first of the year. So that probably played more into the denial than anything.

        I continued my monthly visits and they clearly showed that I plateaued about month 5/6 and began to regain. I originally lost from 333 to 298 and regained back up to 330 but have now lost back down to 318.

      One week post-revision, down 5 lbs since surgery day.....which puts me back under 300. VICTORY!!! Still a ways to go but I'll take every little win I can get. Feeling great other than minor abdominal discomfort.

      Breathe baby breathe
      Where does it go?
      Some of the water produced as the body consumes fat exits in the usual way, through your urine and sweat. But a 2014 study in the British Medical Journal found that most of the byproducts of fat (including all that carbon dioxide) leaves the body through the respiratory system.
      Yep, you read that right. You breathe out the byproducts of most of the fat that you burn, the CO2 from that process mingling with the CO2 produced by your lungs as they process oxygen. It's something to think about while you hit the gym or walk on a track: getting rid of fat can be exhausting, but it's as natural as breathing.
