No idea! Sorry :( I'm pretty bad about sweets and salts when aunt flow is in town. I just make sure to limit myself so I don't go over board, and then try to make it up with working out a little harder.

Also I skip work outs on my heavy days too, they say you'll feel better... but I just can't make myself do it!

It seems like every time my cycle come around I ruin the past few weeks of work I had put in to lose weight because I just can't say no! So I understand you. I try to cure my chocolate and sweets craving by having the special k cereal with chocolate in it. It is pretty good and you can feel good about eating it too. I wouldn't eat it all day but it's good while it lasts. I actually was snacking on frosted mini wheat's the other day. I made a portion and put it in a bag and had it dry it was pretty good and enough sweet to make me happy...enough :) Check out this article I found online.

I just try to remember that having one or two small sweets is ok, as long as I adjust my diet and I dont eat everything in sight.

Sweets aren't that bad for me, when I have my period I want slim jims.
