Diet after menopause.
Hello, I am 42 years old female. I recently hit my menopause and I have been feeling weak. I read that during this time women need to eat healthily and take care of themselves. I don’t know what I should add to my diet to get proper nutrition please suggest to me what should be my diet after menopause?
@lavanya Menopause is a normal part of a woman’s aging process. Menopausal transition, or perimenopause, usually begins four years before the last menses. Here are some food that you should include in your diet like
- Eat a well-rounded diet rich in calcium, magnesium, and vitamin D.
- Consume omega-3 fatty acids.
- Add foods containing plant estrogens or phytoestrogens. Broccoli, cauliflower, dark berries, chickpeas, and soybeans can help mimic estrogen and reduce some menopausal symptoms
- Include- dark green leafy vegetables, especially spinach and kale, Yogurt, Cheese, Milk, Flax and chia seeds,
You can even cut off a few things like Processed foods, Refined carbohydrates, and Alcohol.
