Women going through menopause can gain 8-15 pounds during the first two years if they are not careful according to Dr. Mickey Harpaz and author of, Menopause Reset.
I know it's not real encouraging BUT there are foods we can eat during menopause that nourish our bodies and keep us full longer. Bethany Barone Gibbs, PhD conducted a test in 2012 to investigate the relationship between eating habits and weight gain in menopausal women. She concluded, " Your goal is to make small changes that you can maintain for the rest of your life."
That's good news! Small changes can equal big rewards and are so much easier to stick with.
Today we are going to talk about which foods to eat more during this season of your life. Next time we will talk about foods to avoid. I am not a nutritionist or a doctor of course but I have done a lot of research and I know one thing>>>> whole natural foods are the most healthy foods you can eat. They nourish our bodies and help support our hormones and during menopause, our hormones are wacky enough already. They can also help reduce food cravings and possibly help hot flashes too! WINNING!!
