Avoid foods like: 1) Coffee: caffeine increases the heat even more; 2) Pepper: contributes to the increase in body temperature, so don't overdo it; 3) Carbohydrates and sweets: it is important to be careful with these foods since in this phase, women, due to hormonal changes, are more likely to accumulate fats and may trigger diseases due to obesity.
