Every month, right before my period, all my good intentions go to hell. It’s not uncommon for women to experience cravings at this time of the month, due to raging hormones, and in people with bulimia, this can have disastrous effects. My weekly total of behaviors spiked to about 6 instead of 1 or 2.
The thing about binging right before your period is that it’s harder to resist than binging on normal days. You have all the psychological triggers and you have extra hunger and bodily urges to eat because of the hormones. Also, the stuff you crave right before your period tends to be unhealthy stuff (at least for me), so if you give in to an urge to eat some of it, there’s more incentive to continue down the path of binge, rather than stopping yourself.
I think the best thing to do is to keep track of when your period is and notice your cravings. It might help reduce them.
