We asked our panel of experts to discuss with us the effects diet and exercise have on our menopause symptoms and were met with a great response. Along with their expert advice we also heard from a few women who have tested out these suggestions and reaped the rewards.
Today, we are hearing from Diana Fletcher, a woman going through menopause who’s taking action steps to minimize menopause symptoms.
Menopause and Me!
I am going to give examples from my own life. I have been experiencing hot flashes, changes in body–all sorts of wonderful menopausal things. About a month ago, I decided to take charge of what I was previously just reacting to. (Example, whining about the hot flashes…:)
One of the best actions I took in regard to food was to seriously cut down on coffee. I could drink coffee all day and did not realize how much it was contributing to the hot flashes.I now have 2 cups in the morning, half de-caf, half-caf and splurge with an extra latte on the weekends.Huge difference in how I feel! Also, very little processed foods and sweets. I feel better, have more energy and lost a few menopausal pounds.
