In brief: Chocolate craving

Many women crave chocolate just before their menstrual period.
For some, the urge to consume large quantities of chocolate candy and desserts can become overwhelming . . . . But be quiescent during the rest of the cycle. During these other times, they may simply enjoy chocolate, but not feel compelled to seek it out and eat it.
