Menopause Weight Gain - Tips to Fight It

Menopause can bring on weight gain. However, how much weight you gain can be up to you. When it comes to dieting many people will often fall at the first hurdle because they just do not have either the will power or the stamina to maintain a new regime. Below are a number of helpful diet tips which should help you to stay on track and lose those additional pounds or keep from gaining them to begin with.

1. Weigh Yourself Daily

By weighing on a daily rather than weekly basis you will be able to see the benefits from dieting. It is best if you use a set of digital scales as they will be able to show you exactly what you have lost on a daily basis. Unfortunately a normal set of scales even if you have lost weight will only really alter once large amounts begin to be lost and by not being able to see even the smallest weight loss a person can soon become easily discouraged and stop dieting altogether. Using a more detailed set of scales will help a person to remain positive.

2. Drink Plenty of Water

The reason why you should be drinking plenty of water around 8 glasses (2 liters) each day is because it will help to suppress your appetite. By doing this you will feel less hungry and so you will be less likely to want to snack. Also water will help the body to remove those unwanted toxins which can also cause the body's systems to slow down and so will help you to burn the fat and carbohydrates more quickly.

3. Exercise

It is best if you carry out your exercise in the morning as this will give your metabolism a kick start and so when you do eat during the day the calories and carbohydrates that you digest will be burnt off much more quickly.

4. Fiber

Increasing the amount of fiber you consume will help to make you feel fuller quicker and again will result in you having less urges to snack throughout the day.

5. Make the changes in your diet small

Many people will fail when dieting because they make too many changes at once and they are often large ones which results in them feeling very restricted. Instead just take it one step at a time and make small but major changes in the way you live and your dietary habits.

6. Diet with a Friend

By going on a diet with a friend you will be able to help motivate each other at those times during it when you are feeling low.

Small changes can keep you from large gains. Don't let menopause weigh you down!
