Once a month, women face PMS. During this week not only do women get cramps and feel bloated, but mood swings can change dramatically depending on the woman and how she feels. This can be not only due to hormones, but also due to pains in the stomach area and also because there is extra gas and bloating which makes you feel overweight and miserable.
In order to try to combat these negative effects, you can change your diet which has a direct affect on your mood and how you are feeling. When you eat foods that are high in sugar, high in fats, or excessive in carbohydrates, you will get a sugar rush and crash and feel fatigued and tired more quickly than you would from eating foods that will give you proper amounts of energy such as whole grain products. One of our favorite authors online is a blogger called Jolene Carter. In Jo’s nutrition guide, she discusses how to use portion control containers in order to help you monitor the amount of food you are taking in each day. By decreasing the amount of food you eat each day, you will not only lose weight, but you will feel more comfortable and happy throughout the day. When we eat excessively large portions of food, our stomachs become extended and bloated which makes us feel fat, uncomfortable, and lethargic.
The portion control diet is a new concept with nutrition that allows people the opportunity to still eat foods that they like but in smaller quantities so that they will not put on weight. If you can eat small portions of foods that you like and larger portions of foods like fruits and vegetables and lean meat, you will not only be able to build lean healthy muscle, but you will help improve your mood because you will feel better throughout the day when you feel in better shape. It is also important to cut out drinking too much coffee because it has too much caffeine and dehydrate you especially in the summer time such as now. By drinking lots of water, exercising regularly with the fitness program, and using portion control containers to monitor your diet, you will have better moods throughout the day will be less likely to go through dramatic episodes throughout the day.
