When you make a title like that, I wonder if there are any men checking in just to see what's up! ;)
If there are any that had to sneak a peak, pretty sure they won't stick around long!
One day I'll be a "big girl" and not have to deal with this, but until then,
I have looked all over for ways to make living with it a little easier. Show your body a little love and feed it those things that will keep yourself stable and your body functioning optimally. Here is a simplified list of things you should be eating (and drinking!) to help you sail through that time of the month:
13 Things You Should Eat During Your Period
Iron Fortified cereal/ lean red meat- Replenishes iron from blood loss. Can include liver, but who really eats that?
Water - Replenishes fluids, and is a much better choice for your body's all around health than diet sodas, girlfriends! Important, important, important!
Add lemon or lime to the water you drink - Citrus helps control bloating.
Calcium - A woman whose diet is high in calcium (supplements included) experience less cramping, bloating, and headaches before and during their period, than women who are calcium deficient.
Salmon and tuna - The vitamin D in salmon helps with cramps and mood swings; 3 ounces of salmon delivers 530 IU's, but I say go outside! Sunshine delivers far more IU's of vitamin D! (see THIS post)
