Diet, time to say no to certain foods: sugar and wine!

Have you found yourself saying no to certain foods and alcohol? Join the club!

Have you noticed when you have had that takeaway, that seemed inviting at the time but then disagrees with you during the early

hours of the morning? A night of disturbed sleep and feeling awful the next morning? Ringing any bells yet?

Let’s add alcohol to the mix too, those glasses of wine that again seemed a really good idea at the time but then you find yourself wide awake from 2am and cannot get back to sleep, does any of this sound familiar?

During the day has your appetite fluctuated? Suddenly you can be ravenously hungry and then not the next? Then you find it’s all too easy to fall into bad snacking habits. This all happened to me, at a time when I had no idea that I was Perimenopausal. I could not understand what was happening to me if I am honest.

nce you know that it is your hormones that are affecting you in this way, it seems to be easier to manage. I have had to change my diet habits and so far it has worked for me. I make better choices now when it comes to food at home and ordering food whilst out. Now and again the odd takeaway, then I will order something light to eat. I am not perfect 100% of the time, but then who is? I just try to be more careful and manage what I can and cannot eat. I definitely feel so much better for eating more carefully now. During this change when your body is going through such a lot of transition it is so important that your body is in good shape and why not? Eating healthy is much better for us and we want to enjoy our next stage! Right?

Personally, I have found that a varied diet of eating lean meat, fish with fresh vegetables and salads with small amounts of pasta or carbohydrates works best for me. Red meat only once a week, alcohol limiting to just the weekend, the odd 1 or 2 glasses of wine or a cheeky G&T.
