Whether you have a hankering for a salty snack, such as potato chips, or a sugary one, such as biscuits or gummy bears, once again your hormones are responsible. In the last two weeks of your cycle, progesterone spikes, acting as a diuretic and causing you to secrete -- and thus crave -- more sodium. And since serotonin (the feel-good hormone) also drops during this time, you may also instinctively eat carbs -- often in the form of biscuits or lollies -- in an effort to boost your mood. To help head off cravings for sugary, high-fat carbohydrates, increase your intake of whole grains, fruits and vegetables and eat smaller, more frequent meals -- this keeps blood sugar on an even keel, and doing so wards off bingeing.
If you are really strong and fight the binge attack you will be pleasantly surprised by a big weight loss.
take one biscuit and savour it with a couple of hot cuppas. With this last method it may be hard to just stop at one biscuit.
