Nutritional guidelines in menopause


Eat right, exercise, get adequate sleep, and learn to relax — you will find you have more energy to enjoy your life. Major problems related to menopause are-:
Hot flushes-.Avoid stimulants such as coffee, alcohol and chocolate and spicy foods, especially at night
Tiredness-Avoid snacking on sugary foods – all too often a sharp rise in your blood glucose level may be followed by a sharp dip which leaves you feeling tired and drained. Choose fresh fruit with a few nuts instead.
Weight gain-Watch the amount of fat in your diet and cut back on sugar.Eat complex carbohydrates, such as whole wheat brown grains, wholemeal pasta, bread, as they will help balance blood sugar levels and keep you feeling fuller for longer.
Depression and irritability

  • Ensure you eat enough protein foods which contain the amino acid tryptophan. Tryptophan helps manufacture the neurotransmitter serotonin. Serotonin helps moods and may help control sleep and appetite which can make you feel better in yourself
  • Eat breakfast and do not miss meals to balance your blood sugar.
  • Women going through the menopause should increase their intake of food sources of calcium, magnesium and vitamins D and K to maintain the integrity of the skeleton.
  • High amounts of phosphorous – found in red meat, processed foods and fizzy drinks – should also be avoided. Too much phosphorous in the diet accelerates the loss of minerals
  • Opt for more alkaline foods – vegetables, fruits, seeds, nuts and yogurt – to help prevent calcium reserves being leached from bones.
  • Eat foods high in magnesium and boron. These are minerals which are important for the replacement of bone and thus help to reduce the risk of osteoporosis.
