Our food preferences never remain the same. They alter and change, sometimes taking an unexpected turn. Women are especially susceptible to food cravings during or before those ‘special days’. Doctors say this is absolutely normal, while nutritionists have developed a series of nutritional recommendations for menstruation. 

During the first days of their period, most women worry about pains in the lower abdomen. It is recommended to avoid strong meat broths, sweets, alcohol, or caffeinated products, as they can intensify spasms in the vessels. Light meals should be dominant in the diet. Replace all other drinks with water. During menstruation, your body loses iron along with blood, so it is important to replenish it. Include broccoli, spinach, cabbage and asparagus in your diet.
