In a recent publication of The International Journal of Eating Disorders, Professor Kelly Klump explored the relationship between the menstrual cycle and hunger. During ovulation, few women experienced binge eating. The period after ovulation until menstruation turned out to be the period when many women lost control of their eating behavior. As menstruation got closer, this feeling became stronger and stronger. This feeling of hunger disappeared from the day of menstruation. The researcher found that some female mammals can have exactly the same pattern. So insatiable hunger during this period has not only to do with our society but also with your hormones.
