Menopausal Well-being at the table!
Too many calories in the daily diet are the main cause of being overweight in menopause. In fact, compared to 30 years of age, at 50 years of age you need 200 to 500 fewer calories (if the goal is to lose weight). Too many calories in the daily diet is the number one cause of being overweight in menopause.
There is no need to overeat at a stage of life when the body, due to hormonal and metabolic changes, requires less energy. The diet should be perfectly balanced to ensure that we get all the basic nutrients our bodies need such as calcium and protein.
Reducing calories does not mean eliminating foods or skipping meals, but it does mean reducing the portions of what we bring to the table.
👉 We need to ask ourselves:
- Do I really need it?
- Do I eat food driven by something else: stress, sorrow, dissatisfaction?
👉 Remember that:
- By eliminating unnecessary calories you are already losing weight!
5 GOLDEN RULES:
- A portion of protein should fit in the palm of your hand.
- A portion of pasta should fit into the volume of a fist and a half.
- Bread should fit into half a hand
- Eat less and less during the course of the day: reserve sugars for the first part of the day, reducing them gradually before it ends
- Prefer variety to quantity: eat lots of different foods in small portions.
