Q&A

Why am I gaining weight around my period?

 
Don’t you just love all this growing-up stuff? Well, fortunately, your weight gain is only temporary. It’s your body retaining water, so it’s normal to pack on a couple of extra pounds, but you’ll shed them as soon as your period is over. To lessen the bloats, avoid salty foods, exercise and, oddly enough, drink more water! It helps to flush the excess fluids out of your system.
