Do any of you banana girls get super hungry right before your monthly? This is the time I start to fall off the raw train, it's almost like a binge and I wonder if it's all (mostly) in my head, maybe I am telling myself I'm hungrier than I truly am to have an excuse to fall off.. Are there any physical (scientific) reasons a woman should need more calories before the monthly? Or any other chicks experiencing this? I guess the main thing I need to figure out is if I should just accept and prepare for the extra calories, or if its a bunk excuse to allow myself some rice or bread or something I "feel like I'm missing" since I'm the only raw person I know where I live... I feel so much better when I'm raw but since I quit all my " party vices" I think I started allowing some emotional eating instead of learning to deal with those emotions. Maybe this is an extension of this emotional eating..? I know in my heart being low fat raw vegan is what is best for my body and the whole planet and when I fall off its only to high carb vegan with maybe a little more fat than normal, but I physically feel bad, bloated, achy, skin break outs, tired and it takes me way longer to recover from workouts. Why am I sabotaging myself???
