Welcome back to my weekly series on Thriving through Perimenopause!
Last week I shared some tips to help regulate your symptoms by adding Calcium and Vitamin D-Rich Foods to your diet. Today, I’ll share a little more:
EAT YOUR VEGETABLES!
Really… Vegetables, especially leafy greens like kale, Swiss chard, arugula (my favorite), and Bok choy, help support weight loss during Perimenopause.
Cruciferous and sulfur-rich vegetables such as Brussel sprouts, kale, spinach, and asparagus help the body produce Diindolylmethane. Diindolylmethane also referred to as DIM, helps in the balancing of the body’s hormones by aiding in the breakdown of estrogen.
Eat High Fiber Foods!
High Fiber Foods, such as lentils, black beans, peas, broccoli, raspberries, pears, and even oatmeal, will help your digestive health, support weight control, and help keep you feeling fuller longer.
Savor Some Berries!
Not only are berries high in fiber, but they are also packed with antioxidants and contain less sugar than most fruits which may help curb some of your sugar cravings.
Nothing too complicated here, right? Isn’t it time to show your body a little love?
Over the next few days, try to incorporate more foods like these into your diets, and stay tuned next week, and I’ll share a few more tips to help you thrive!
