HOW TO MAINTAIN WEIGHT DURING MENOPAUSE?
During menopause, the female body experiences a major hormonal change, with a significant drop in estrogen levels.
Hot flashes, sleep problems, a greater tendency to retain fluids or changes in mood are some of the effects of this hormonal decline. Also weight gain: one of the biggest conditioning factors for the quality of life of patients who come to our clinic in Santa Cruz de la Palma and Los Llanos Boston medical center.
To help you maintain your well-being during this stage, at Tinabana we have designed a care guide with which to keep your weight at bay during menopause .
BET ON FIBER AND HEALTHY FATS
Diet, when we talk about maintaining an adequate weight, is the first element to take care of. To curb the tendency to gain weight during menopause, it is desirable that we eat a balanced diet, rich in fiber and with a clear commitment to satiating foods with healthy fats, instead of saturated. For this, nuts or avocado will be an excellent snack.
CHOOSE THE EXERCISE THAT BEST SUITS YOU
The combination of a balanced diet and moderate exercise is a classic winner when it comes to health and weight control. Introduce it into your daily life as a habit: choose to walk instead of driving or taking public transport, have fun dancing with friends or take the stairs instead of the elevator Boston Medical center.
In addition, it will be ideal that you choose a light sport and to your liking to practice, at least, 150 minutes a week: aerobic exercise of medium or low intensity (swimming, fast walking, cycling…), yoga or pilates are exercises very complete that will also help you maintain your muscle tone and gain elasticity.
