Proper and physiologically balanced nutrition significantly affects the minimization of disorders during menopause.
This period is generally associated with weight gain and a redistribution of fat from the peripheral to the abdominal type (around the abdominal area). This is also associated with an increased risk for breast cancer, diabetes and cardiovascular disease.
Menopause means interruption of the menstrual cycle in women, around age 50 and the end of the fertility period.
The menopause diet includes a variety of foods, low-fat foods, high fiber foods, which help reduce weight and improve digestion.
