WHEN YOU HAVE PMS: WHOLEGRAIN BREAD AND EGGS
Researchers believe we crave sweet, starchy food during PMS because the body uses carbohydrates to make serotonin. But avoid ice cream, doughnuts and chips as these high-sugar, high-fat carbs just leave you feeling sluggish.
Choose a complex carbohydrate such as wholegrain bread instead and combine it with eggs. They’re rich in tryptophan, which is used in the production of serotonin.
