Do you want to lose weight? Have you piled on the pounds since hitting menopause?
During menopause, our metabolism and hormones are changing, but our habits are not.
When we start to transition through menopause, many women feel that their weight gain gets out of control.
Having previously remained slim and found it easy to drop a few pounds when necessary, they now find that they are gaining weight on a monthly basis which can be really depressing and affect self-esteem.
As we head into our 40's and 50's, we are no longer cruising on the wave of youth, our bodies are changing, and we need to make small changes to our nutrition and lifestyle to support this.
When we consume a healthy diet that supports hormone balance, not only can it help with weight management, but it also helps increase energy levels, supports and improves digestion, enhances sleep, boosts our mood, improves our skin and hair, and much more.
Our hormones need to be balanced. They are responsible for how we think, feel, and act.
If they are imbalanced, they can have a huge impact on our health, wellbeing, and quality of life. Therefore, what you choose to put on the end of your fork can either heal or hinder your health, so it makes great sense to eat the right foods to support, balance, and nourish your body and hormones.
Ultimately a hormone balancing diet is low glycaemic, meaning, it is low in sugar and starch, but rich in healthy fats, vegetables, lean proteins, phytoestrogens, and fermented foods. When we eat this way we are helping keep BOTH our hormones and blood sugar levels balanced - which support weight loss. Download your free 'Hormones and blood sugar balance' booklet now!
But alas, it is not all about the food! We need to find a place for exercise in our lives now, and these combined will go some way to future-proofing your health against osteoporosis, heart disease, and dementia after menopause.
Nutrition and lifestyle are covered extensively in my 30-day online menopause support programme launching 22nd April 2022 – get in touch directly if you have any questions, I’d love to hear from you today!
