Oh i'm weird i guess ...

Just before my period i don't eat much. But what i do eat usually includes chocolate or something sweet. During my period i stick to fruits and veggies mostly and when i'm ovulating i eat the whole house. I know my cycle and all the important people (people i live w/) know all of this already

I think your body craves something it's lacking ... I know chocolate increases production of some hormone or another (??), so it would only make sense that you'd crave that when you're hormones are kicking into overdrive

I don't think I have period cravings. I just have cravings, period. Let me see... I think my biggest craving is french fries. I'm not a big chocolate freak. I don't really like cookies or cake. Hmm... I know I have other cravings... fried chicken... I'll add to this in a bit. I'm going to go jog now. French fries, fried chicken, and jogging... something is wrong with that.

Oooh..food. My fave topic.

I crave Cadbury Almond Chocolate, Campbell's Chicken Soup, KFC, Marks and Spencers Chips.

Basically, if it's junk food, I crave it. Plus I eat like there's no tomorrow. Haha.

Salty and sweet...and it varies depending on what day of the period it is! I'll have to jump on the "fried chicken" band wagon though...there's just something about that chicken...

I always crave gai bao, steamed Chinese buns filled with a savory chicken mixture (the place I get them always has my favorite kind of Chinese mushroom in them too). And I tend to crave fish, particularly sushi.

And salty things. Muchas salty things. Pickles, olives, stuff like that.

And candied ginger. Don't know why, but I do get a craving for it when I'm about to bleed.

Arby's Curly Fries. Mmmmmm..........

Of course, I haven't known a woman who *doesn't* crave chocolate on her period.

Let's see, for my period I crave... EVERYTHING!!! I ate like a whole bag of chips today. All that sodium and cholestrol. Shame on me... Then I ate a salad for lunch. I felt a bit healthier. I can't say that I crave chocolate when I'm on my period because I crave it all the time! There are times though when I have no appetite at all when I'm on my period. Such odd eating habits, I have.

Oh yeah... Hanne, what is candied ginger?

A week before I get my period I crave whatever I can grab and eat fast enough that I don't even remember what it was! No REALLY! As soon as I get my period the cravings end and I hardly have any appetite, I'm satisfied with just small portions. That lasts until the week before my period, I usually gain like 3 pounds then....I hate it, it makes me feel very self conscious!

Ugh, I'm having cravings now, actually....I came here in hopes to stop eating!

Candied ginger, also called crystallized ginger, is ginger root that has been simmered for a long time in sugar syrup so that sugar permeates the ginger.

It's eaten as a candy, but it is still hot and spicy like ginger normally is even though it is sweet.

And Pink, I don't crave chocolate before or during my period (or much of any other time -- I like it fine but I don't ever really crave it), so you now know one woman for whom choco just doesn't hold much significant appeal that way. There's always SOMEONE out there to be the exception to the rule, I figure.
