What we eat, what we avoid and how we eat become of greater importance as we approach menopause. Not just help us manage common symptoms but also to prepare our bodies for the post-menopause life where heart and bone health, arthritis and cancer prevention become more important.
Many classic menopause symptoms like hot flashes, brain fog, night sweats, mood swings, weight gain and palpitations are often blamed entirely on our hormone changes. But is this true?
Or could they also be the effects of blood sugar flucutations, adrenal fatigue, thyroid dysfunction, stress or even simple dehydration?
In my programs we zoom out to take a bigger picture view of lifestyle factors and how we are adding to or taking away from our baseline health by what eat.There is a lot of evidence that different food choices can help reduce many common menopause symptoms. And that cutting out the triggers like caffeine, sugar, alcohol, dairy, gluten and the stress and guilt associated with eating. Instead making sure we are adding in plenty medicinal foods that build resilience, create a strong healthy gut and make food enjoyable.
How we eat is also important. And that’s where a mindful eating approach can greatly assist in helping us to stop struggling around food. Mindful eating is an easy, useful, practical skill that you can use each and every day. When you learn how to eat mindfully, using intention and attention so you don’t have to make a big effort to eat healthfully or lose weight, because it will happen naturally. With mindful eating you can enjoy eating again.
