No one’s action can guarantee breast cancer prevention but you can reduce your risk & improve your health. Eating a variety of nutritious, colorful fruits and vegetables daily is key to preventing and lowering your risk of developing breast and other related diseases fueled by obesity.
Weight loss or weight gain can cause health problems such as; losing your period, or having excessive or irregular menstrual flow. Overweight women aren’t the only ones who may have problems with their periods. Underweight women and women with eating disorders, like anorexia nervosa, that result in extreme weight loss may also be unintentionally impacting their menstrual cycles. Women without much fat on their bodies may have fewer periods or go longer without ovulating.
Your menstrual cycle maintains a delicate balance, so it’s good to be aware that gaining a large amount of weight or exercising excessively and losing a significant number of pounds, can impact your production of hormones, specifically estrogen, and hypothalamic functioning, potentially changing the regularity and length of your menstrual periods. Including high-fibre meals in your daily diet and drinking lots of water helps in reducing the period pain and also the constipation.
