How to reduce pre-menstrual syndrome (PMS) symptoms

The Nutrition Coach in Cosmopolitan magazine

The Nutrition Coach is featured in an article in Cosmpolitan magazine focusing on pre-menstrual syndrome (PMS) symptoms.

Kate Cook, founder of The Nutrition Coach, says that you can drastically reduce period pain by changing what you eat.

“Vitamin E, found in avocado and spinach, will help combat water retention and breast tenderness, while soya products, such as tofu, are rich sources of phyto-oestrogens that help balance hormones. Magnesium-rich foods, such as green, leafy vegetables, fruit, nuts and seeds, help relax muscles and help nagging cramps.But they won’t work if you eat too much refined sugar, which is another good reasons to watch your chocolate consumption.”

According to Kate Cook, the trendy low card Atkins diet – popular with many female celebrities – is the worst diet for sufferers of period pain.
Cutting out carbs can leave you with low blood sugar – and the diet means you’ll eat very little fruit and veg, and the vitamins and minerals they contain.
All this can leave you run down, while period symptoms such as dizziness, weakness and headaches, can get worse.

“Steer clear of saturated fats found in dairy and meat, the main foods found in the Atkins diet and up your intake of the essential fats in nuts, seeds and oily fish. They promote healthy female hormone production.”
