Lose Weight and Stay Young Even in 40s..!!
Women’s are the leading power of this world. Even though they are facing somany problems in their daily life they are proving in their own field. It’s a duty to take care of the family and also themselves. Women’s are more active in their home and also in their workplace. But after 40s they are losing their health gradually because of the menopause. Now let’s we look for the healthy menopause after following the menopause dietand health tips. 
 
Hormonal changes
Menopause is a natural stage in a woman's life, bringing physical and emotional changes. It starts when a woman's hormone levels decrease at 45 to 55 years of age. Periods become irregular and eventually stop. Subsequent physical changes means greater attention should be given to diet and lifestyle.
 
Weight gain
There may be weight gain during menopause but it certainly isn't inevitable. Since energy needs decline with age, choose foods that provide lots of nutrients (vegetables, legumes, whole grains, lean meats, low-fat dairy foods, fruit) rather than lots of kilojoules (takeaways, biscuits, cakes).
 
Get active
Regular physical activity is important for staying fit and well, and helps offset weight gain. Cardiovascular exercise (walking, swimming) helps keep your heart healthy. Resistance exercise (Pilates, light weights) keeps your bones strong. Aim for 30 minutes of exercise most days.
 
Healthy bones
A fall in estrogen levels during menopause can cause a reduction in bone density, increasing the risk of osteoporosis (reduce in bone density). Eating more calcium-rich foods can help prevent this. Aim for three to four servings of calcium-rich foods every day (milk, yogurt, cheese, fish with edible bones, soy milk with calcium). If this is difficult, consider taking a calcium supplement.
 
Mental well being
Some women experience mood changes such as mild depression and irritability during menopause. Good-mood foods such as omega-3 fat-rich fish (salmon, tuna, mackerel, and sardines) can help, as can regular meals, physical activity and setting aside some 'me time'.
 
Healthy heart
The risk of heart disease and stroke also increases with menopause, so you need to have your cholesterol and blood pressure checked more often. You can reduce risks by avoiding smoking and actively maintaining a healthy weight. Choose lean meat and low-fat dairy products and limit pastries, cakes etc to minimize saturated fat intake. Also watch the salt, as blood pressure increases with age.
 
Follow these tips and enjoy your menopause....Happy Woman's Day!!
