I love the work of Dr. Christiane Northrup.
Her words of wisdom helped me through Menopause.
The Hormone -Balancing Food Program. (from THE WISDOM OF MENOPAUSE)
- Eat at least three meals a day. ( I eat 5…my snacks are important to me.)
- Focus on Portion size not calories.
- Eat Protein at each meal.
- Eliminate the high-glycemic foods as much as possible. ( I still enjoy a glass of wine with dinner.)
- Reduce grain products.
- Eat a variety of fruits and vegetables. (Mainly vegetables)
- Enjoy healthy fats. (avocado, coconut oil, olive oil, and BUTTER!)
- Drink lots of water. (2 cups before each meal)
Take high quality supplements… A great multi-vitamin and fish oil.
I do all that , full disclosure here, I have been on bio-identical hormones for 6 years. I feel good on them but I would love to get off of them. I received an email today from Dr. Christiane Northrup that I wanted to share with all of you. She has created her own product line to support women through menopause and beyond. THIS CHANGES EVERYTHING! I am going to slowly wean myself off the bio-identical hormones with A-ma-ta! I will let you know. I hope this is helpful for all of you too!
FIT AND FABULOUS…AGING OPTIONAL!
