The only things you want to eat during your period are ice cream and chocolate, but it turns out, these foods are doing nothing to help you.

If you're suffering from one of the symptoms of premenstrual syndrome (PMS), which can include headaches, bloating, cramps or tender breasts, the video above by ModaMob shows us exactly which types of foods we should be eating.

From water-based fruits and veggies like cucumbers, grapefruit and lemon to more omega-3 fatty acid foods like salmon and nuts, the video also gives us insight on what to eat for each symptom of PMS.

Other ways to relieve pain include exercising (this is important for balancing hormones), taking a hot bath or taking specific supplements like calcium and vitamin B6, notes Dr. Mark Hyman.
