Dieting isn’t just a fad to make you lose weight. Eating the right things ensures you are getting the right amount of nutrients, vitamins and minerals in your body. Our team here at Women’s Health After 40 can help you find the best diet for older women, and tell you why it’s important.
When you’re approaching later life, there may be the beginnings of fat around your waist or an increase in weight gain at the outset of the menopause. This is caused by hormones telling your brain that you need food or desire food more than your body really requires it.
To find the right and best diet for older women, it’s important that you observe the three main meals throughout the day. Breakfast is the most integral meal of the day and sets your body into a metabolising state immediately. Our articles will detail the importance of high fibre and low carb breakfasts for your diet.
At the later stage of life, your metabolism does become weaker. This can cause a knock-on effect where sugar isn’t burned off as well as it can be, this is then turned into stored fat in your body – which is never good.
To transform your diet and ensure your body is ready for anything later life and the menopause throws at it, read our detailed article entitled: ‘Fat Around Waist: Know Why Its Bad And How To Curb It’.
