Avoid Menopause Weight Gain

When it comes to losing weight during menopause it is not purely about changing your dietary habits and using exercise it is also about making changes to the way you lead your life. You will soon discover that many of the diets being advocated by various people both on TV, in newspapers and on the web really do not always work. Below are some diet tips which can help you to make the necessary changes to your life and to your dietary habits, and which will help you to lose those unwanted pounds instead of gaining them in menopause.

Firstly you should only set yourself goals in relation to how much weight you are going to lose that is realistic. Rather than rushing head long into using the latest fad diet or exercise regime take your time and devise a diet plan that suits you perfectly. If you need to spend some time talking with your doctor or visiting a number of the sites on the web that offer dietary advice and tips.

To ensure that you are getting the right balance of nutrients in your diet you should make sure that you eat plenty of fresh fruit and vegetables. Also if you do need to use ready prepared meals at any time then carefully read the labels. Look carefully at what each product contains and if you are unsure about anything then just take a look at what the calorie count for that one is.

Design an exercise regime for yourself that you know you will stick to. Look at those exercises that you enjoy doing and incorporate them into your workout routine. Also if you can find ways of including exercise into your every day routine. For example instead of getting the bus all the way to work each day get off a couple of stops before and then walk the rest of the way.

Before you sit down to eat a meal have a glass of water first, this will help to fill your stomach up a bit and you may well find that it helps you to feel less hungry. The less hungry you feel then the less you are going to eat.

Rather than grabbing for chocolate or other sweets instead go for something a little more nutritional say some nuts or fruit instead. Fruit is especially good as it contains a natural sweetener so will help to stop for your cravings for sweet things, but also is full of fiber so will make you feel less hungry as well.

When eating out, instead of going for a starter and main course just have starters served as your meal. They are much smaller portions and can be just as satisfying.
