Unfortunately, calorie intake decreases during menopause due to metabolic changes and natural muscle loss. This is a natural process and many women experience weight stagnation despite consistent diet and exercise. In addition to endurance training, strength training is also 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 per day for 1 or 2 days per week brings the metabolism out of its reserve and 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 check regularly if the measures taken are appropriate and effective for you. If necessary, seek additional professional support from your doctor or nutritionist.
