The buttons on your pants feel like they’re about to burst, and you bit your co-worker’s head off today for no reason. Yeah, it’s PMS time.
Maybe it’s time to go on a diet… A PMS diet that is.
First up: fatty fish like salmon or tuna.
Research shows vitamin D in this seafood helps battle the blues and other symptoms that come along with PMS.
Eat dairy: Like low-fat milk, cheese and yogurt.
They’re packed with calcium, which is known as a bone builder and bloat buster that battles moodiness, too. It’s a win, win, win!

Veggies more your vibe?
Put leafy greens like spinach on your mid-month menu. They’re high in magnesium. Research shows women tend to get low on this mineral as symptoms set in, which can increase irritability.
Even if you already feel like you are. Peanuts, hazelnuts, and especially almonds are high in vitamin E, a proven PMS treatment.
Finally, remember to stay hydrated to battle the bloat. And don’t overdo the sugar. No matter how much you are craving it, it is not your friend.
