PMS and Cravings

Hi Brooke,
I have severe PMS for 2 weeks in every month since my early 20’s. I am now 45. I have decided to take massive action to reduce the negative symptoms. I have started IF/No sugar and flour protocol for 2 weeks – so far my moods appear to be much more stable, my thinking is much sharper and my brain fog has gone. I am worried about how to handle the huge carb cravings which I get a week before my cycle. I suspect they are hormone related as I don’t really get them at any other time of the month. If it is my hormones, would this just be a thought that I can put in the model or should I increase the amount of white rice or potatoes during this time? Have you found this IF and cutting out sugar and flour help others with their PMS symptoms?

Many thanks,
