Binge eating during periods? Here's how to remain focused on your fitness goals

Periods are that dreadful time of the month which always bring cramps, backaches and sudden urges to binge eat chocolates and junk food however, health experts insist that compulsive eating might help with mood swings and distract you from pain for a short period but it pushes you further away from your fitness goals, especially if you are trying to lose some weight or are on a diet. In an interview with HT Lifestyle, Arpit Kushwaha, Nutrition and Fitness Premium Coach at Fittr, told Zarafshan Shiraz, “Periods can disrupt the levels of oestrogen and progesterone hormones leading to a change in serotonin, resulting in Premenstrual syndrome or PMS. PMS refers to a collection of symptoms or sensational patterns that women undergo after ovulation and before their menstruation, like anxiety, irritability, and mood swings. The increased responsiveness to insulin-related hormone levels before menstruation causes cravings for chocolates, bread, cakes, pasta and other simple carbs and fats. Women may also experience low blood sugar which signals the brain to eat more food. Although fighting the menstrual blues might seem challenging, tweaking your nutrition and workout routine during these days can go a long way in helping you stay healthy and focused on your fitness goals during these days.” She listed 5 workout and nutrition tips to remain focused on your fitness goals during menstruation: (Ketut Subiyanto) 6
