Itchy, b**chy, sweaty, sleepy, bloated, forgetful or psycho! Which one of the seven menopause feelings are you today?
At Nutrition & Life, we are seeing a lot of lovely ladies who are struggling with one or more of the common symptoms of menopause. Many feel as though they are going through puberty again with their rampant hormones leading to wild and unexpected mood swings.
One moment they’re road raging…. the driver in front obviously has an inability to indicate! Next they’re crying to an Adele song on the radio. All the while, knowing that when they get to work their internal thermometer will fail again and every window in the office will need to be opened.
We agree, emotions are hard to deal with on the best of days, let alone when they are brought on through the hormonal roller coaster of menopause. We are here for you ladies and want you to know that our expert dietitians can help you soothe the rage and find a way for you to live a calmer life.
To get you started we thought we would share some quick-fire nutrition tips to help you to live a calmer life:
- Eat regularly
- Don’t skip meals
- Include a protein source such as eggs, tofu, yoghurt or nuts and seeds at breakfast
- Include wholegrains such as oats, wholegrain bread, brown rice or wholemeal pasta at each meal
If you can relate to this, and you’ve been wondering if there is anything more that you can do to ease the psycho, Nutrition & Life are here to help. Get in touch with our team today and start your b**chy to beautiful journey with one of our expert Dietitians.
