Eat right and get plenty of exercise
By Diana Kohnle
(HealthDay News) -- Menopausal women are more prone to weight gain, particularly in the abdominal area, due to the many hormonal changes they face.
The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics offers this advice to help avoid weight gain during menopause:
- Stay active and get plenty of regular physical activity. Incorporate both aerobic and strength training exercises into your routine.
- Cut back on calories by about 200 per day. Focus on eating nutritious foods, including bananas, blueberries, dark leafy greens, soy, salmon, whole grains, yogurt and plenty of water.
- Limit alcohol and salt.
- Maintain a positive, healthy attitude.
