i have been gaining weight since menopause. can anybody share some menopause diet?

 

carol - September 11

you can not find the right menopause diet. not unless you fully understand and learn about food tolerance.

many women put on weight during menopause. this is because as we get older our metabolism slows down so body takes longer to burn off calories.

moderation is the key to healthy eating. eating a bit less sounds simple solution but it will help.

extra fats are not just the only reason for gaining weight. it could also be fluid retention.

here are some reasons why women gain weight during menopause:

1. Eating too many calories.
2. Insufficient Exercise.
3. Physical and Mental Stress.

i agree with you izzy. fluid retention will cause weight gain. self-care options for mild fluid retention include a low salt diet.

it can also be insulin resistance. this usually occurs during menopausal years. this is when your body mistakenly turns every calorie you take in into fat.

how would we know we have insulin resistance? what can we do about it?

 

julie - October 9

PCOS and insulin resistance are usually found together. most women with PCOS frequently have insulin resistance, meaning their body does not respond as quickly to insulin.

here are some clues which may suggest you have insulin resistance-- history of high blood sugar, family history of diabetes, an elevated triglyceride (fat) level in the blood.
