1. Fruit and vegetables
With their high nutrient density and low energy content, they are ideal for losing weight during menopause and should make up half of the plate.
2. Protein and amino acids
Maintain essential muscles and ensure long-lasting satiety. Protein sources should preferably be of plant as well as animal origin and should make up 1/4 of the plate.
3. Complex carbohydrates
Wholegrain products, with their fibre, ensure good satiety and a healthy gut. You can fill the remainder of your plate with these.
4. High-quality fats
By this we mean vegetable oils with a high content of omega-3 fatty acids. For example; linseed oil, rapeseed oil or walnut oil are great in small quantities.
