Increasingly short TOM cycle
Just wondering if anyone has noticed any changes in menstruation since going Primal?
My period arrived today - one and a half weeks early. For the last three / four months my cycle has been three weeks. Seems like it's getting shorter.
I have a bit of a history with irregular periods:
- When I turned twenty I started getting my period every two weeks. I went for scans had found I had cysts on my ovaries, so I went on the pill. I came off it (about 7 years ago) and haven't been regular since.
- When I was veggie I went through stretches (3-4 months) where I didn't get TOM at all, and people always attributed it to my low weight, but as soon as I started eating meat in July it came back to a monthly cycle.
But now I seem to be reverting back to where I was when I was 20...
Has anyone else noticed things changing around as they've shifted their diet? Thanks!
"I think the basic anti-aging diet is also the best diet for prevention and treatment of diabetes, scleroderma, and the various "connective tissue diseases." This would emphasize high protein, low unsaturated fats, low iron, and high antioxidant consumption, with a moderate or low starch consumption.
In practice, this means that a major part of the diet should be milk, cheese, eggs, shellfish, fruits and coconut oil, with vitamin E and salt as the safest supplements."
