It is that time of the month again. By now, you know the drill all too well. A weird nausea, cramps, bloating, a backache, mood swings, and cravings are starting to take a toll on you. As if you have not had enough to deal with already, you get a bonus in terms of increased body weight.
Just the other week you felt slimmer and pretty good, and then overnight, you feel bigger. Some of your jeans trousers no longer fit too.
You feel more confused about what is going on in you as the scale confirms that you have indeed added on an extra couple of pounds. This is what we call period weight gain.
