The next subject I want to cover is Weight Management. Remember the symptoms you experience are all manageable and you can have control over them.
Weight Management: Menopause can bring about changes in metabolism and make weight management more challenging. Plant-based diets tend to be lower in calorie density and saturated fats, which can help women maintain a healthy weight and reduce the risk of weight-related health issues.
Hello, legumes! These gems are loaded with protein and fiber. They will fill you up and are naturally low in fat. These phytoestrogen symptom suppressing foods include:
- Chick peas
- Split peas
- Black beans
Naturally, I have listed some of my dishes below. These help my clients discover the simplicity of how to prepare and include in their meal plans.
Teriyaki Chick Peas, soaked & freshly cooked
Indian Dal with “red” lentils and chard
Split Pea soup
Black Bean Burgers
As always, I make no medical claims. The research regarding a plant-based lifestyle speaks for itself. Because you are here, my help is yours.
I started out several years ago watching Forks Over Knives, decided to “try out” the plant-based meal plan and had shockingly incredible results. I’ve never turned back. I have lost nearly 50 pounds, and that is just one side effect that me, my family, friends and clients have experienced after making the change.
Having been an incredible cook my entire adult life, I started my own personal chef service, NuYu Nourish, to extend my help to others. I interned under a celebrity chef, became a celebrity chef myself and have been expanding my reach and goals ever since! My plan follows strictly and simply those of Dr. Mcdougall, Dr. T. Colin Campbell and Dr. Esselstyn.
