BTD Forums  /  Live Right 4 Your Type  /  Following this diet has reduced my PMS symptoms

I have noticed Im not bloated and not craving foods and not hungry all the time like I usually am before my period. Im pretty sure cutting out wheat and other stuff has played a role in this ..has anyone else noticed a reduction in their PMS too?

Yep for me  it was all the soy and weird veggie oils that made me pms ( I am a former vegetarian)
Lately I have had some issues with heavy bleeding and a small fibrom and following the female protocol and going lower carb have reduced it huge !

I still get PMS, but my cycles are more regular and the flow is lighter than I used to get, pre-BTD.

My period is lighter since I came back to BTD, still have heavy feeling in my tummy on first day, but that's about it.

I used to have bad pms before the BTD. I would have very bad painful cramps. Eliminating the avoids and adding the beneficial foods have helped. I have regualr cycles now and little to no pain each month. I think brewer's yeast or nutritional yeast helped with that also.

by all means!
lectins in general, and avoids trigger an insulin resistance of some form.....
I live happily and free of inflammation staying compliant......this is important to me

all I crave are my beneficials......the rest. I gladly give away to other more needy! ;)

I've only been on the diet for 9 days and my period is late.  Can the diet affect my cycle so quickly?

fembalance has been so helpful, not to mention compliance through an avoid free approach and lifestyle change

your body is now getting balanced, but for the better

Ha!  My period was a few days late without the usual spotting for three days prior and it lasted only 4 days with very little cramping and aching.  I was awfully crabby before it came though...but this could be due to the detoxing from the diet.

I am on my third week and doing GREAT!

My 21 year old daughter has significant improvement in her PMS once she started following the Warrior diet.

Now that you said that, I am putting on some green tea (with caffeine) right now even though I am getting some very mild cramping. I never would have had caffeine on this day of my cycle a year ago. Now I just take it for granted that that time of the month isn't such a big thing anymore. Not sure if I can sort it out as to just wheat or if it's the whole plan. I'm not as compliant as I would like to be with SWAMI yet-- still in the neutral zone quite a bit.

I've been on BTD for 2 yrs now and my PMS is gone. (ok, I still get a little grumpy,  ;D but the bloating/cravings/etc. is gone) Also, my cramps are virtually gone (used to need TONS of motrin to get through the first couple of days), but it's definitely tollerable!  ;)

Same here. Definitely tolerable now.

Same here--huge difference! My period has become lighter, shorter and next to no pain and very little bloating. No more acne before the period. I also have no headaches associated with discomfort during the period. Prior to BTD, I never had a period during which I did not suffer--even since the very beginning when I was a teenager. I still get grumpy sometimes and also I get extra cravings for chocolate, but that's about all  ;)

Ah, yes . . . . I think I can still remember those days!  (think)   ;)

And, my BTD did help with all the unpleasant symptoms!  (hehe) LOL
