A woman's menstruation cycle can
affect her weight in many ways.
Have you ever noticed you seem to weigh more just before or during your period?
Don't panic! While there may be minor changes in metabolism throughout the menstrual cycle - in addition to possible water retention - these won't impact weight-loss success.
The menstrual cycle is regulated by a number of glands, which produce different hormones during different stages of the cycle. These hormone fluctuations are responsible for a number of side effects, including a build-up of fluid.
