*bump* anyone else wrecking their diet every month with PMS cravings?

I started paleo this month and because of the changes in my diet/ exercise regime my cycle was sooo delayed. I felt like I needed the carbs and ate unhealthily for a couple of days. Don't know if it helped, but at least I got my period! I was going mental.

Any suggestions to avoid PMS cravings next month would be most welcome! It really is my downfall :(

I lost about 1.7kg and am small built. It has plateaued now in the third week, but have been down with a bad cold and not exercising. I aim to be back on track with my exercise schedule today as am going to the gym. I think it's best not to overexert yourself at the gym till the point you're absolutely ravenous. It's better to do the right amount of exercise so that you don't wreck your diet.

I'm trying to incorporate more cooked vegetables into my diet, that aren't just raw salads. This sounds de-lish!

Thank you :D  I am in week 3 now and I already feel a difference. I eat about 80 percent paleo and maybe 20 percent non-paleo. I am happy with my progress and will keep at it!

Hello!

I started out being semi-paleo by cutting out wheat after I found out I was allergic to gluten in my teens. I have since been on a sugar ban, only using natural sugars but sparingly.  I started doing HIIT in the past couple of years after getting bored of yoga and running (knee injuries are not fun)

I have in the past used almond flour in baking treats, as after years or not eating wheat, I do miss the occasional brownie and cookies! I am sick of almonds, although I know they are good for you  :) 

I recently read about the "caveman power" diet, but have anyways used a similar model for myself over the years to get fit. The diet is based on intermittent fasting during the day, drinking only water, tea, grazing on fruit and nuts and then "feasting" at dinner time for the first 2 - 4 weeks. For newbies, the recommendation is that you can eat pretty much anything. Although I prefer to eat paleo as this helps drop the pounds (for example after a holiday!) 

This method of eating suits me as I absolutely hate ruining my appetite eating small meals through the day, and never really having the pleasure of eating a full meal at dinner time, and I miss the social side of eating dinner with friends or family.  I should add that I am small framed, so eating a heavy lunch would mean that I have probably ruined my dinner. Does anyone else have experience with Intermittent Fasting?

Some people I know (and they are of a healthy weight) eat only once a day. I really found this to be beneficial myself ... and it does give a break to the digestive system. 

I would love to hear about anyone else's experiences/ your thoughts.

Best wishes!
