PMS and hunger
For the past three months I have struggled with keeping to my points during my pms days. This month wasn't nearly as bad, perhaps because I made a conscious effort to keep track of my cycle so I knew what was going on. At any rate, I read a very interesting article on weightwatchers.com. It basically says that the extra hunger during those days reflects and is off-set by an increase in metabolic rate for those few days (even though you feel exhausted) and that eating a bit more makes no difference to weight loss goals. It may seem like you're gaining weight, due to water retention, but that all ends after the period is over anyway.
