What do I need to pay attention to in my diet during menopause?

  • Updated

Unfortunately, calorie intake naturally decreases during menopause due to metabolic changes and natural muscle loss. Many women experience weight stagnation despite consistent diet and exercise. Both endurance and strength training is recommended to prevent further decline in basal metabolic rate in later years.

There is no specific diet for menopause. However, 5:2 or 6:1 fasting has been shown to be effective for weight loss during this stagnation phase. Lowering up to 500-600 kcal daily for 1 or 2 days per week brings the metabolism out of its reserve. This way, relatively rapid weight loss is achieved.

Every body is different, and not everyone is able to cope the same way with our recommendations. Always try to listen to your body and regularly check if the measures taken are appropriate for you. If necessary, seek additional professional support from your doctor or nutritionist.

We hope that our article could answer all your questions and we wish you a great journey with YAZIO. Should you have any more questions, please feel free to contact our support team and submit your request anytime here.
