Need to eat more (women only)

Recommended Posts

I suspect that as my menstrual cycle approaches my hunger increases? Plus I gained, Anyone else experience this? Also I need more fats? Is this common? Is this just a post WLS thing? I remember wanting chocolate but I don't really anymore...

I definitely get more cravings around that time. I used to get really bad cravings for sweets around my cycle, especially for anything with a Peanut Butter and chocolate combination. That does seem to have passed some. Whether that is because I’m not eating the same or because of my surgery I am not for certain.

When I was heavier I would retain 5-6 pounds of Water weight. Now I retain 2-3 pounds or maintain. The week after I have had decent losses of 4-5 pounds though.

I think it’s just a normal part of our cycle.

I am not on any hormones or birth control, and I know sometimes these can affect it as well.

Oh man during the PMS period is hard !! I crave the weirdest things and I am constantly hungry. The surgery hast changed this one bit, I can’t eat as much so one or two bites I’m full but the cravings don’t go away and the hunger comes back. During the regular weeks of the month I’m totally fine , as I’m healing I find that I have to remind myself to eat and the hunger hormone is almost non existent🤷🏽‍♀️

Normal. I almost never go over my calorie limit, but when I do....you can put money on it that it'll be in the days just before my period. And I crave steak afterward. Weird!

I stall during my period. Then about 4 days afterwards, I drop all at once. Oddly, I am really NOT hungry at all during my period and tend to fall back on Protein Shakes to make sure I get something in.

      6 Weeks Post Op!

      My world is drastically different! I now walk 3 to 4 miles a day and I’m constantly getting up to move my body! .

      I close my Apple Watch rings daily and about 4 to 6 days a week I double or triple them!

      I have been released to have all foods. When I reintroduce some I need to start at 1 ounce to see how “Tiny Tummy” likes it!

      I am not reintroducing sugars, coffee or junk! I did not pay close to $13,000 to fail! .

      I went to get follow up bloodwork done this week and my numbers are all in the perfect range! .

      This is my new world and I am happy it!

        I didn’t see it either but I wish I had now for both the battle on court & the ball tampering accusations flying around everywhere now.

      Went to see the Star Wars movie yesterday. (Glad I waited as no one else was in the cinema for the midday session - yes!) Hadn’t been to the cinema for a few months and OMG I suffered the most terrible butt pain.  So uncomfortable. Started after 30 mins. Was in the premium cinema so grabbed a cushion to sit on but it didn’t help. Ended up sitting sideways in the chair, stretched out on an ottoman. Soooo super glad no one else was there. Sometimes I do miss my old butt fat cushioning... but not really.
