The main premise is that instead of eating three large meals a day or skipping meals, menopausal women should eat at least six small meals and snacks a day consisting of small portions of lean meat or seafood, whole grains, and lots of fruits and vegetables. This, combined with daily exercise, supposedly works with menopausal women's changing hormone levels to reset their metabolism to fat-burning mode again. I've only been following this plan for a short time, so it's too early to say whether it works or not. It is a major shift remembering to eat something every 2 hours, though - kind of like feeding a newborn again.
If you're not sure whether you want to spend money on a permanent copy of this book, do what I did - borrow it from a library and just scan the useful parts. To me, the most helpful part was the 2-week sample menu that gives you an idea of the kinds of foods you should be eating.
There's another plus for me. For the last few years I've struggled with feeling exhausted and head-achy before I eat, and dopey and very, very sleepy after I eat. I'm a super busy professional woman, so that just doesn't work for me. I've had only small windows of time in my day when I felt awake, good, and energetic. With this new way of eating, I experience none of the bad feelings and exhaustion. My energy and alertness are even all day. I'm obviously one of those women whose blood sugar jumps way up and down with food. Even if I hadn't lost weight, I would be very grateful for how much better I feel!
And, one other positive! I've driven everyone crazy most of my adult life feeling cold all the time when everyone around me is warm. I wear bulky sweaters in the summer, just to stay warm. I would feel warm for about 30 minutes right after eating, then I would be freezing cold again. With this new way of eating, my body temp is much more normal. I can dress normally and feel comfortable even under air conditioning now.Read more ›
