  • Yes. I crave salty/sweet when I am PMSing.

  • When I'm PMSing, back away from the salty snacks and the chocolate. You will get bitten.

  • Cravings have nothing to do with pregnancy specifically. They have to do with the body's change in hormones and need for certain vitimins. When your body is asking your for vitimins it sends out signals to the brain and the brain then signals to you that you need to eat. Specific foods that you "Crave" are more things that sound good to you and not soo much your body asking for those specific foods. However, it is your body telling you that it requires more of something. As well in hormones even from your menstral cycle or period you can find that you crave certain foods. Whether it is foods to benefit your body through vitimins, or just a sweet tooth.
