Weight Loss & Nutrition Tips
Good nutrition can make a big change in how you feel when you have menopause symptoms such as mood swings, hot flashes, exhaustion, bloating and correlated weight gain. Women of menopausal age should make sure to eat plenty of whole grains, fresh fruits, vegetables, and lean protein for their optimal health.
Foods that should be reduced are: fast food, processed food like chips, biscuits and processed or cured meat like bacon, sausages and salami. Keep in mind that alcohol is inflammatory, and intake should be kept within the Australian Dietary Guidelines.
