I only read back a page so if I am way off on the binging forgive me. Last cycle I had my first ever without a binge. MY binges are always tied to pms. I once low carbed for 4 years straight and still fell off like clockwork monthly. Didnt matter if I was fat, thin low carb high carb etc.
Early December I sought advice from someone well versus in natural medicine and three things made a big difference in cravings for me. The first was taking primrose oil daily. The second was the natural calm magnesium every night. The third was to eat to my hearts content as long as it was lower carb. If it was 3000 calories it was ok. I made it through without binging on carbs. I even lost a few lbs where as that time of the month always shows a gain.
The magnesium and primrose made a huge difference.
