If you're dealing with two or three pounds of PMS water weight, choose salmon for your next meal. Women who took 2 grams of an omega-3 fatty acid supplement per day—about the amount found in a 3-ounce fillet—were significantly less bloated than those popping a placebo, reports a 2013 study in Complementary Therapies in Medicine. Bonus: The study also revealed omega-3s can boost PMS-associated mood problems. Feel good and happy.
