Menopause Diet: What to Eat to Help Manage Symptoms

    Menopause comes with a lot of changes, but your diet can make an impact. Diet can impact a woman’s menopause symptoms in both a positive and negative way. Eliminating or cutting back on the following things can help improve how you feel. So, eat more of the following:

    Increase your consumption of fruits, greens, colorful vegetables.

    Consume omega-3 fatty acids. Research shows that omega three s can decrease the frequency of hot flashes and the intensity of night sweats. I really encourage women to get their Omega three s first through food, which includes fish such as salmon, mackerel, and tuna, and other vegetarian sources like flax seeds and chia seed.

    Add foods containing plant estrogens or phytoestrogens, broccoli, cauliflower, dark berries, chickpeas and soybeans can help mimic estrogen and reduce some menopausal symptoms. Now the foods you should stay away from refined carbohydrates. For instance, white rice, bread, pasta, and potatoes. These are all linked to spikes in your blood sugar, and an increase in insulin resistance. Instead, opt for whole grains. 

    Eliminate sugary foods like cookies, cakes, candies, and sugars are hidden everywhere, so make sure you read your labels. Stay away from processed foods, eat as close to the natural state of a whole food as possible. Spicy foods, these aren’t necessarily bad for you, but can bring on hot flashes. Alcohol can exonerate your menopausal symptoms. For me, I don’t sleep well and it increases my hot flashes. 

    So there you have it. The foods that can help you in the menopause transition. If you found this video helpful, please like share with someone who may benefit and subscribe to our.
