Ok ladies, ever find yourself getting extra hungry during "that time of the month?" You're more hungry during your period because you're burning 100-300 extra calories! "It takes a lot of energy to fuel hormone fluctuations before and during your period, and your metabolism speeds up by as much as 15% in response to that demand."
What to do about it: Eat extra protein to stop those hunger pains and iron and omega-3s to balance the hormone swings that cause hunger.
