What Should You Eat On Your Period?

 

Our modern world ensures that every woman out there is aware of the thousands of different diets you could utilize to reach your health goals. However, not many diets take a woman’s menstrual cycle into account. In fact, as we go through our menstrual cycle our nutrient requirements and calorie needs shift quite a bit. In this way, you can use nutrition to care for your body and optimize your hormones to increase fertility, reduce PMS, lose stubborn weight and more! This is the definition of my Eating For Your Cycle method.

 

Have you ever noticed that you crave chocolate on your period? There’s a reason why: your body is letting you know it requires more magnesium.

It’s easy to prevent or remedy the instances mentioned above with knowledge of proper nutrition for the female body.
