Our health and internal state much depends on what we eat and how we eat. And it goes without saying that healthy eating habits are a need for everyone who wants his body to be in good condition. You may say that special nutritional habits are necessary only for those who want to lose weight or to keep fit, but it is not true at all. If you give some thought to this question you’ll see that healthy food and food habits create a healthy body and help not only to avoid lots of problems with weight, but also to improve your state if you feel badly. If healthy nutritional habit becomes your daily eating habit, it can help to relieve pms symptoms a lot
Some of you would probably say that they have no time to control their food, others would say that it is boring and uninteresting – but after you make the first step on this way you’ll find it even enjoyable, and moreover you’ll immediately notice positive influence of your new way of life on your organism.
Here are a few very simple advices which will help you to make you life much more pleasant and easy especially during your pms period.
First and the main thing you should get used to is drinking a lot of water during the day. Scientists say that a person should drink 30 milliliters of water per 1 kilo of his weight a day. Water is everywhere in our organisms – all our organs, our skin, even our brains contain water – and without it our body begins to dry out and wither. Moreover water helps to free the organism from toxins and other harmful substances. It is also better for our health to prefer water to other beverages you drink during the day – for instance tea or coffee contains lots of caffeine which makes us too active and sometimes too irritable. Skipping caffeine and replacing it with water may help you to avoid pre-period moodiness and insomnia. Water makes you to feel fuller, so you’ll even see that you need less food not to be hungry. Keep water always at your fingertips and drink it every time you are thirsty – and you’ll see that it can make wonders with your organism.
Second advice for you is to eat smaller portions and eat regular meals. When you skip meal you gain nothing except out-of-control hunger and in result – overeating. If you are too hungry you don’t pay special attention to what you are going to eat – and you often buy extremely unhealthy junk food to satisfy your hunger. It is much better to have small snacks between your meals and eat more often – 5 or 6 times a day – but to eat reasonable portions. And don’t skip your breakfast! If you don’t eat breakfast you stay without food more than 10 hours by the time of your lunch, and for the rest of the day your body accumulates energy from food you eat in the form of fat instead of giving you a possibility to burn it.
Certainly we eat not only for nutrition but also for pleasure. And to make our food tastier we add to it different seasonings, salt or sugar… Not to feel flabbiness you should reduce amount of salt in your meals (at least during a few days before your period). Salt causes water retention in the organism and avoiding it will give you feeling of lightness. Sugar also doesn’t give lots of benefits to our organisms – so your body will thank you for replacing sweet food with fruits.
We always have lack of time so we usually eat very fast. If you acquire the habit of eating slowly you won’t overeat and as a result feel heavy and tired. Don’t hurry, enjoy your meal and you’ll see that you are full with much less amount of food. You’ll feel that you’re toned up and relaxed which is very important when you are experiencing pms symptoms.
If you are feeling that you should change something in your life, start with you eating habits – because, as a famous proverb says, we are what we eat. Maybe it looks difficult to make the first step, but after you make it, you’ll never regret.
