    Red meat? red meat is the best while you’re on your period because of the high iron content.

    If not eating the foods on this list for one week means you’d be starving, you should seriously reevaluate your eating habits. Most of these are foods that should only be eaten in moderation, anyway.

    I disagree with the caffeine bit, as its anti-inflammatory benefits that can soothe cramps. Sure, it’s a diuretic, but drinking an extra glass or two of water will keep you from even noticing the minimal dehydration.
