What are the best and worst foods to eat during your period?

As a woman, you know the best foods to eat while on your period aren’t quite what you’re craving. It’s the worst food, like the heavy, greasy, sweet stuff that speaks to your soul. If it’s unhealthy, you want it. For many of us, menstruation symptoms are unpredictable. Some women seldom experience symptoms, while others find it challenging to operate throughout the day because of exhaustion, abdominal cramping, headaches, diarrhea, and nausea. Here are the best foods to consume and the foods to stay away from when on your cycle.
