PMS – and how you can beat it!

Yes – beat PMS with diet!
Any woman who suffers from pre-menstrual stress – and the people around her – should be happy to hear that diet can make a huge difference to these monthly woes. Here are some main pointers: 
  • Never skip meals. To maintain your blood sugar levels, it is better to eat small amounts more often.
  • Eat two snacks per day in addition to your usual three meals.
  • Eat protein at both lunch and supper.
  • Reduce fat and sugar consumption.
  • Drink eight glasses of water per day.
  • Make sure you eat at least three portions of fruit and vegetables (preferably green leafy ones) every day.
  • Keep salt consumption to a minimum as salt makes your body water-retentive.
  • Make sure you eat a diet rich in magnesium, iron, zinc and chromium, essential fatty acids and vitamins B, C and E. Eat fish at least twice during this time.
  • Increase your intake of complex carbohydrates (for example, pasta and rice).
  • Avoid caffeine, which is found in coffee, tea, cola drinks and chocolate
