 The best way to keep track of your weight loss journey during menopause is to keep an eye on excess body fat and get rid of it. For menopausal women, it’s mainly around the waist and hips.
 Increase The Consumption of Fruits
and Vegetables
Did you know that increasing the consumption of fruits and vegetables in your daily routine can help prevent many menopausal symptoms? This is because fruits and veggies are high in fiber and low in calories, making you feel full faster and aiding you in losing and maintaining weight.
Moreover, it always allows you to keep health problems like heart diseases at bay. You consume less fatty food that can affect your heart and switch to healthier alternatives beneficial for your body.
Stay Away From Trigger Foods
Since menopause causes many hormonal changes, foods that used to be your favorite could cause hot flashes, mood swings, or even night sweats. And consuming some of these foods at night could lead to further complications, including heartburn and palpitations. Typical food triggers include alcohol, caffeine, and food items high in spice or sugar. If you’re feeling forgetful, keep a diary on hand to track what you’re consuming. This will help you determine possible triggers.
Regular Exercise
Exercise is mandatory for everyone, regardless of gender, age, or size. It helps you keep your body moving, builds muscles, eliminates excess body fat, and keeps many diseases away.
However, after menopause, you might need regular exercise in your routine more than ever as the hormonal changes can cause digestion issues and slow down your metabolism. Moreover, regular exercise will keep your joints and bones healthy and create a destressing effect, adding to a better night of sleep.
