    How much weight do you all gain on ur periodsand how long does it last? I’ve gained 5lbs and am getting concerned because it seems to keep increasing.

    Also, on the Internet, most articles say to limit sodium to help with bloating, but that seems like the opposite of what 180degreehealth supports. I’m just confused on whether or not my high sodium diet is causing me to retain a lot of water.

    @godschild – I don’t weigh myself often, but based on how I look and how my clothes feel, I’d estimate I gain around 4-7 lb each month. But I seem to shrink back down again a few days into my period (if not a few days in, then at least once it’s over). I’d say go with your instincts, regarding the salt (i.e. salt to taste and follow your cravings). That’s what I’d do, anyway.
