Diet for a good life should aim to give you maximal hormonal health. The basis of your diet should be plenty of complex carbohydrates; moderate amount of protein, sufficient essential fats, minimum saturated fats and plenty of water.

At the time of hormonal change the body may start to react to everyday foods, showing as allergies, headaches, bloating, fluid retention and weight gain.
The menopause diet, the feel-good lose weight plan for the menopausal woman, addresses intolerance; exclude carbohydrates for 7 days, then introduce the lowest carbohydrate glycemic index food (foods with low sugar content), i.e. peanuts, white bread, pasta, whole wheat.
These should be introduced gradually and signs of intolerance should be noted and excluded from your diet. Weight and balance can be improved with additional help of mineral, vitamin and antioxidant supplementation
