Food Choices for Menopause
Which foods should you choose to help
manage your menopause symptoms?
Let's talk nutrition, food choices and diet in Menopause
Throughout the years of creating food plans for clients and athletes, I have always been aware that food habits are ingrained. To change nutritionally weak food choices to more effective choices it requires us to find a way to avoid cravings and therefore overeating. The key, as I see it, is to include the foods that you love twice a week - but actually timetable into your week when you will have a meal of your choice. This will help to make you feel more in control which in turn will prevent cravings. It will also help you to keep on track. Managing your food choices in this way will produce more leptin, an appetite-suppressing hormone, which will help you maintain a higher metabolism in the long run.
Your body needs foods that it can use as fuel, that help your digestion and boost your energy. The benefits are not only on the inside as your skin will look radiant too! A whole food nutrition plan will lift your serotonin levels - a hormone that is partly made in the gut lining, meaning; if your food choice is poor you are less likely to feel positive. Let me help you to make some small changes that will compound over time and make a huge difference in the future, paving the way to a happier menopause!
