The only way I remember that its time is when all I want is chocolate. I make chocolate chip pancakes over the weekend and thats it but 3 4 days before periods I become a choco gansta! anyone has that issue? How do you handle it?

I just eat everything in sight.  Nothing specific, I just LOVE food!

I hate chocolate but right before my period when im pmsing I'm dying for it. Its the caffeine in it. It makes us feel better.

Could also be a magnesium deficiency.

I honestly don't have any food cravings around that time...I just get a little irritable!

I don't necessarily crave chocolate but I find that I'm STARVING for a few days before mine.   The only thing I do for it is eat!   I do have a tip for chocolate cravings though.   When I crave chocolate, the best thing I've found are individually wrapped chocolate (dove promises are my favorite).  The catch is to suck on them, DON'T chew them.   When you suck on them they last WAY longer and are much more satisifying.
