Nutrition and Menopause
We recommend you opt for a variety of vegetables, fruits, low-fat dairy products, healthy fats such as olive oil and avocado, complex carbohydrates such as oats, bran, whole grain bread, beans, and lentils. You should avoid refined carbohydrates, such as white bread, crackers, cookies, and white sugar (the white foods), as well as saturated and trans fats, and sodium. Limit “junk foods” that are low in nutrients and high in calories. It’s also important to limit your consumption of alcohol and caffeine. Sometimes making just a few adjustments to your eating habits can potentially make a big difference to your health. Please call our office to see Dr. Sandra Fleming and/or Temi Correll for your own personalized assessment as well as the creation and implementation of a personalized plan.
