Our expert says:
It is possible that your diet is making the PMS worse. Just hang in there when they weigh you this time and don't get upset if you weigh more because of water retention. If you are taking in too much liquid (including water) (i.e. more than 2,5 litres/day) then you may be suffering from an electrolyte imbalances that can cause water retention, so please be careful not to overdo your water and/or liquid intake. Just because a moderate amount of liquid is beneficial does not mean that excessive intakes are good - in fact they can be most detrimental.
