Menopause Diet

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.

Diet is very important during menopause, to have your dietary needs personally looked at please call post a comment at the bottom of this page or use our ask a question page.

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

    I’ve been reading all your posts, this is exactly why I’ve just qualified in Exercise and Nutrtion for the Menopausal Women…

    Having been a PT for fifteen years, 80% of my client base are women in the same situation, with the same questions as yourselves…

    Please read my Instagram page to get an idea if my character: sammarcusx

    I’m in the process of making a food and exercise plan, plus a natural/healthy supplement to combat the symptoms of pre/peri/menopause and post menopause.

    I would love to hear, help anyone out there that’s suffering XXXX
