With menstrual cycle come period cramps. While menstruation is incomplete without it, here is a period diet chart to help you deal with the period pain.

Weakness during periods is not uncommon especially during the first and second days. Many women find themselves feeling fatigued very soon and this is mostly due to the hormonal change and loss of blood. It is important to go easy on these days but the right foods can certainly give you more energy and nutrition to your body. 

The best way to keep your energy levels up during periods is to eat foods which give you natural sugars such as bananas, dates, grapes, mangoes, etc. Apart from these foods, whole grains like oats, jowar, ragi, brown rice also help provide a great deal of energy. Sprouts and salads should also be a part of your diet.

Foods to beat menstrual pain and cramps: 

Foods which increase the alkalinity in the body are the best to keep the pain away. Include foods like fruits, lemons, dried fruits like anjeer, raisins, prunes, nuts, salads, veggies and veg juices/coconut water.

I have personally experienced that if you regularly take mild boiled water, your cramps will ultimately be reduced with the passage of time. Cold water and cold drinks can certainly get you more severe cramps.

Sometimes the body reacts differently to different foods based on the type. So, you should consult a dietitian to give you menstrual cramp specific diet chart.
