Must see 6 Foods You Should Never Eat On Your Period
Eating unhealthy foods as you clock towards menopause can worsen bothersome symptoms, such as hot flashes and
insomnia. Knowing what to stay away from can allow this natural shift much more manageable.
Sticking to a healthy, well-balanced diet is a good choice in general, but it’s specifically true for women who are approaching or have just clocked menopause, says Amy Jamieson-Petonic, RD, a nutritionist and exercise physiologist in Cleveland.
“A healthy nutrition can make a big change in how you feel with regard to menopause symptoms like mood swings, hot flashes, and exhaustion, as well as bloating and possible weight gain,” Jamieson-Petonic says. Women of menopausal age should make sure to eat plenty of whole grains, fresh fruits and vegetables, and lean protein for optimal health, she says.
That advice is backed up by a survey of 400 post-menopausal women documented in an article published in April 2019 in journal Menopause, which discovered that women who ate a diet rich in fruits and vegetables were less likely to report having experienced menopausal symptoms than women whose diets contained more fatty foods and sweets. Decreasing your consumption of these and certain other foods may be able to ease a lot of the discomfort linked to this natural transition and help you stay healthy in the years to come.
