    hi beslimjojo

    I get bloated at time of my period, and often have a gain that week, which then is gone the following week. At the time it really gets to me, and I am so unreasonable about it (hey, I am unreasonable about EVERYTHING when I have PMS!), but I have to remember it's a blip. It helps if I look at my weight loss/gain over a month or two, and I can see the pattern.

    Anyway, for bloating, I drink a lot of water to flush out my system. Mint tea is also good for a bloated tum. I try to stick to plan anyway, and ignore the gain until the following week.

    Maybe reduce carbs, and increase your fibre, but if it's hormonal I don't know if that'll make much difference?

    Not much help am I? I am just a pre-menstrual whinge-bag...

    Into the 12s
    Regain my 0.5 stone award
    Regain my 1 stone award
    Don't gain more than 3lb at Christmas (Only 1.5lb gained!)
    Into the 11s for good!
    Halfway to healthy BMI (11st12)
    Club 10
    1.5st gone
    Lose weight on holiday (Lost 0.5lb by climbing a load of mountains to make up for all the wine, phew!)
    Half a stone to go to healthy BMI

    Into the 10s
    Healthy BMI (10st10) soon, but definitely before I go to Spain in June!

    I think food affects us all differently, a lot of people have said that too much bread bloats them. Personally I'm struggling with my star weeks atm, they just seem to turn up when they like (thanks for that mother nature!) I find switching the type of food I eat at this delightful time helps, I try to drink fruit teas more than coffee (Im a coffee monster) I try not to use my syns on bread. I try to cut down on things like bacon and read meat and stick to chicken, quorn and fish which are all speed foods and I try to have more fruit, veg and water. I also think having liquid syns helps my weightloss- yay wine

    Basically I lean to upping the SF, speed foods and water, stay away from salty foods or food that I know I like to add salt to (boiled rice and chips basically) just to cut down on water retention.
    Suck it up, Buttercup

    Green tea always helps my bloating. It's not to everybody's taste but you get used to it after a while. Plus it's good for you x

    I can second this. I'm in menopause and over the last year, my previous 'normal' fluid retention pattern went completely haywire, leaving me weighing around 6lbs heavier than I actually was for most of the month. It would usually dissipate at a particular point in my cycle, if only for a couple of days, then bang I'd be 6lbs heavier again overnight. Nightmare!

    I decided to try green tea as I read somewhere it was supposed to be good for getting rid of excess fluid, and it has worked like a dream. I'm actually amazed at how immediately effective it is for me. I make a point now of drinking about 3 cups a day, in between the Earl Grey!
