nutrition and menopause in Passaic

Menopause and weight gain are inextricably linked

In the phase of a woman's life before, during and after menopause, estrogen production substantially drops off, metabolism slows and lifestyle factors become all the more important for managing weight and other health concerns. Nutrition is one of the key ways to exercise control over your post-menopause health: not only does it help you control weight but it can also be used to prevent the onset of certain conditions and diseases which become more prevalent following menopause. 

Nutrition for postmenopausal women

Below you will find some basic guidelines that help guide nutritional choices. While this might make for a radical departure for some, it is worth experimenting with diet to determine how a more balanced diet can help you lead a more balanced life. 

  • Bone health: vitamin D, calcium and magnesium are all important ingredients for maintaining bone density and preventing the onset of conditions like osteoporosis. 
  • Establish balance in your diet: healthy grains, and the incorporation of plenty of vegetables and fruits daily. 
  • Choose healthy fats: mono and polyunsaturated fat as opposed to trans and saturated fats. 
  • Anti-inflammatory ingredients help with autoimmune diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis. 
  • And what to avoid: excessive caffeine intake, cigarettes, sugar and bad fats.
