The fourth phase of your cycle

Fasten your seatbelts – most of us find this fourth phase the toughest. You’re pre- menstrual. Your hormone levels are dropping sharply, and that includes serotonin (the happiness hormone). You’re going to need a bit of help here, and we’re with you all the way.

FIGHT PHASE – NEED-TO-KNOWS

Fight that fight phase feeling

You might be feeling stressed out, and you may have a few symptoms like water retention, premenstrual cramps, fatigue and your skin might not be looking its best. But take heart, it's not just you – 75-85% of women are going through some of these symptoms too! Moderate physical exercise can help with premenstrual symptoms and it’s great for stress relief too.

YOU ARE IN YOUR FIGHT PHASE, NOT BECAUSE YOU WANT TO PICK A FIGHT – ALTHOUGH IF YOU’VE GOT PMS YOU MIGHT – BUT BECAUSE EVERYTHING FEELS A BIT OF A STRUGGLE RIGHT NOW. WE’VE GOT YOUR BACK.

FOOD THAT PACKS A PUNCH FOR YOUR FIGHT PHASE

You only get out what you put in, and you’re going to need to take in some goodness in your pre-menstrual phase. Your body may still be burning fat over carbohydrates here, so consider easing off on bread, potatoes etc. Try opting for a salad instead of a big thick sandwich.
