Ladies, there is that one week out of every month where we feel like an absolute watery bloated mess! Periods seriously suck. It’s bad enough that your hormones are raging and you become super emotional and sensitive, but then you decide to torture yourself even further by stepping on the scales. Then you freak out because you weight has increased so you eat more food to comfort yourself. It really is an uphill battle I know we have all been in that place before. But it’s not all bad, your boobs get bigger and congratulations you are not pregnant! You have successfully made it through another month of baby free sex. And here’s to another month! So instead of heading into an emotional downward spiral that can hinder your long term progress let me give you some pointers on how to survive your monthly period with a little more ease.
Bloating. That one thing that makes you just feel yuk and keeps you from wearing that little tight dress that is snug in all the right places. But it’s that big bump in your tummy that makes you look about 3 months pregnant which can stop you from whipping out that little cute number and instead opt for something that resembles a potato sack. Sound familiar?
Bloating is, unfortunately, something that is quite common, I doubt that there is a woman out there who has not experienced a bloated belly in her life. It is definitely not something that is normal, it’s uncomfortable and we want it gone, yesterday!
When you are bloated it is your gut telling you that it’s not happy however sometimes it can be difficult to tell figure out what exactly is making us bloated.
So why are you bloated and what are the things that can cause digestive stress?
