Foods you should completely avoid while on your period

1Milk

If you experience constant cramps and belly pain, then you need to avoid dairy products, especially milk since it contains lactose which is a specific type of sugar which not everyone can digest. Lactose is also responsible for bloating, nausea, and stomach pain which are the same things you experience when you’re on your periods. Needless to say, you don’t need anything which adds to it.

2Snacks and candy

Snacks can contribute to bloating, inflammation, and gassiness since it contains vast amounts of refined sugar. Although your favorite snacks can help in improving your mood, your body is already going through enough trouble with the loss of blood and vital minerals. You don’t need to add to these problems by pumping artificial sugar into your system. It would be much better to get the natural kind of sugar which you obtain by eating fruits.
