DIET CHART FOR MENOPAUSE

INTRODUCTION

Menopause symptoms vary in every woman. Some changes related to menopause can lead to various long term problems in women such as bone density loss, weight gain, dry skin, sleep disturbances and other hormonal changes. A healthy menopause can be maintained with low-carbs diet and reducing the symptoms by including lots of vegetables, fruits, omega 3 fatty acids, and proteins. Avoiding certain foods like carbonated drinks, caffeine, alcohol, processed foods, salty, fried and junk foods may improve the symptoms of menopause.

Menopause is a natural transition in a woman’s life as her menstrual cycles come to an end.”
