Finally! Good News About PMS

When a woman's hormones are raging for that period of time between her monthly ovulation and menstruation, she is actually able to burn more calories! Take advantage of your body's revved up metabolism and indulge in some extra treats like fig cookies, grapes, sweetened rice cakes, nutrition bars, etc.

It's important to note that although you'll be burning more calories during this time, you won't be able to metabolize a Big Mac, super-size fries and a double chocolate cake. Everything in moderation. How about a Happy Meal instead?

I found this on http://www.inspiredinformation.info. I wasn't aware that there was ANYTHING inspiring about PMS. LOL!

Drat, foiled again! Menopause took care of that extra calorie burning benefit. Oh, well.....

A friend of mine told me this when I was in my early 20s, but I used to think it was her way of getting me to go to Roy Roger's with her for an afternoon sundae!!! ;) Do you think taking Evening Primrose for PMS will work against these raging hormone calorie burning days? ;) Rats! DH is ready to buy stock in Evening Primrose after my first PMS-less triumph though!
