It's normal to crave sugar and especially chocolate, but you have to force yourself to eat your meals first and then indulge in some chocolate as dessert. That way your insulin wont spike so high and jeoparize your health or your comfort during the TOM.

For the past 2-3 weeks i have been getting dizzy and nearly fainted. I am so tired all the time and have no energy. I have headaches nearly everyday. I have also been craving alot of chocolate. I usually exercise 4-5 times a week but lately i have no energy to do so. I have recently moved house and finally have my own space that i havent had for the past year but apart from that no real changes in my life. I had my period last week so surely can not be pregnant... always use a condom when with my partner.... i went to one doctor whom did nothing. I then went to another doctor and he sent me for blood tests but iron and thyriod is fine... am waiting results of Vitiman D levels. Can you help at all as to what you think is wrong?
