The Menopause Diet – what you should be eating and why

  • Insomnia: Difficulties getting to sleep as well as nighttime awakenings are attributed to changes in hormones related to sleep, night sweats, low mood, being overweight and too much alcohol & caffeine consumption.
  • Insulin resistance: Lower estrogen levels can mess with insulin, a hormone that helps regulate blood sugar. As we age, our body becomes less responsive to insulin, leading to less sugar being used for energy and more being stored as fat, causing weight gain. This problem, called insulin resistance, gets worse with diets high in sugars.
