Women are especially sensitive to what they consume, as their bodies quickly respond to the harmful ingredients in meals. Food might alter hormone levels, influence moods and cause some more severe health problems. 

We’ve put up a list of products for you that it is recommended you either restrict or exclude from your diet.  

1. Sweets

Too much confectionery is harmful not only for woman’s figure, but for health as well. Excessive consumption of sweets might lead to inflammatory diseases of the female reproductive system. It might also cause emotional instability because of the high sugar content. 

According to a study from the University of Pittsburgh, women in their 50s and 60s who decreased their consumption of sugar showed more weight loss than those who didn’t cut their dessert consumption.  

2. Salt 

Salt, when overused, is harmful for your body. Limit salty food in the luteal period of the menstrual cycle, as it often worsens PMS discomfort and increases the risk of edema. 

3. Strong coffee and tea

You can drink coffee, but try not to overuse it. Caffeinated products trigger prolactin production which might have a negative effect on mammary glands. Moreover, caffeine causes hot flashes, especially if you’re having blood pressure problems. 

4. Alcohol 

Alcohol has a particularly negative influence on the female reproductive system, as it might lead to egg defects. It worsens the functioning of the ovaries. 

5. High fat & spicy foods

Despite stomach problems for women with a delicate digestive system, extremely fatty or spicy food also causes hot flash issues. 

To stay slim and healthy and to keep your body in good shape, make sure you adjust your diet.
