6 Foundations to Your Diet For Menopause

A good diet for menopause will help when it comes to menopause and weight gain and all the other pesky menopause symptoms. Your diet is one of the most important things you can do for yourself when it comes to helping you through Menopause.

The first foundation to your diet for Menopause is starting your morning off with 16 oz of water and to have a good breakfast. This will wake you up and help getting your body’s natural energy flowing and metabolism kicking.

Starting your day off with a breakfast that is rich in natural proteins is the best start. I suggest a brown rice protein shake, some fruits and green veggies and some good fats. When I say good fats I mean omega 3, 6, 9s, whether it is in a supplement, or from a natural source like an avocado.

Breaking down your breakfast this way will jump start your fat burning metabolism and keep you full longer.

The second foundation to your diet for Menopause is having a snack in between breakfast and lunch. This snack should consist of something in the form of a natural protein like almonds, walnuts, brown rice protein shack, or veggies.

Having a snack in between breakfast and lunch will keep your metabolism spiked and also keep you from being super hungry during lunch and over eating.

What Should Your Lunch Look Like During Your Diet For Menopause?

The third foundation to your diet for Menopause is a light and healthy lunch, like salad, soup and a sandwich full of veggies. Make sure you are drinking plenty of water through the day and start your lunch off with a salad. The salad will help you digest your lunch better and help you save energy for other things throughout the day like working out or working.

The fourth foundation to your diet for Menopause is to have a healthy snack in between lunch and dinner. Like foundation two, the same applies to this snack. Keep your fat burning metabolism spiked and curb your hunger so you do not over eat during dinner. Make sure to be drinking plenty of water throughout the day.

Like your lunch, make sure to have a good salad before dinner. This salad will help you digest your dinner better, plus you need to the vitamins for menopause from the salad.

Your dinner should be the smallest out of the three major meals. Your metabolism is going to start slowing down towards the end of the day and you don’t want your body working over time trying to digest a big meal. Eat like a king in the morning, like a queen in the afternoon and a peasant at night. The same applies to water consumption, drink a ton throughout the morning, a little less in the afternoon and the least at night.

When it comes to a bed time snack, you want to eat one. The reason is, your body does all its repairing and recovering while you sleep. You want to keep your metabolism spiked while you sleep so your body can work more efficiently at burning those calories.

When it comes to a bed time snack, no carbs! Try to eat foods like green veggies and good natural proteins that come in the forms of nuts and avocados. I like eating some all natural guacamole and carrot sticks or a handful of almonds. These fats you get from these foods are great for fat burning and will keep your metabolism spiked during sleep. Not only will these fats help with menopause and weight gain, but they also help with all the other menopause symptoms you may be going through.

Keep this structure in mind, eat clean water rich veggies and fruits, keep the carbs low and the healthy proteins and fats high when it comes to a successful diet for Menopause.
