Honoring Heroes this Memorial Day, May 29, 2023.
We at SOZA honor the brave servicemen and servicewomen who sacrificed for our freedoms.
Weight gain, hot flashes, insomnia, fatigue, food cravings, and more! Menopause seems more prominent in the Western world, most likely due to diet and lifestyle.
While it is true that you can’t stop menopause and the subsequent symptoms mentioned, there is life after menopause, and this program can help.
Instead of just accepting mainstream advice and enduring menopause, here are some nutritional tips that can help control your symptoms.:
SOZA low-carb program with healthy fats
Time-restricted eating (TRE)
Phase 3 Mediterranean-style rich diet can improve quality of life.
Simply put, the drop in estrogen causes a chain reaction of metabolic changes leading to weight gain due to increased appetite. Weight gain and tummy fat (visceral fat) hinder your body’s ability to respond to insulin.
So, during phase 2 and phase 3, you’re not only reducing fat, but you’re also reducing visceral fat by improving insulin function.
By simply going low-carb, you’re already helping to stabilize unwanted menopausal symptoms.
In conjunction with the nutrition program, some studies show that TRE for 12 hours helps to improve sleep. This is important because lack of sleep causes weight gain.
Limiting the time you spend eating to at least 12 hours every 24 makes you more likely to experience better digestion, improved metabolic health, and a slowing down of the aging process.
Exercise isn't a proven way to reduce menopausal symptoms like hot flashes and sleep disturbances. However, regular exercise can help you maintain a healthy weight, relieve stress and improve your quality of life.
The antioxidant-rich foods, such as fruits, vegetables, and healthy fats like nuts and seeds, help to prevent cancer and chronic diseases.
