Are you having symptoms of menopause? This is Judy Gaman and this is your Stay Young Medical Minute. Menopause occurs when a woman’s estrogen level drops substantially. Because of that drop, weight gain is extremely common. You can combat menopause induced weight gain by increasing your activity. Gardening, going for walks, and taking the stairs are all ways to increase your activity. Staying away from processed foods like white bread, pastries, and processed meats and replacing them with more nutrient-filled foods like fruits, vegetables, and legumes can help you consume fewer calories. Sleep is also an important tool to combat weight gain. Make sure you are getting the recommended 7-8 hours of sleep a night. Talk to your doctor if you have questions about menopause. This Stay Young Medical Minute is brought to you by Executive Medicine of Texas, a leader in preventative and proactive medicine.
