By Teresa Cutter
What's great about it
When I mention the word menopause you may think of hot flushes, tiredness, mood-swings, loss of libido, weight gain, insomnia and so on. It’s inevitable that many of us will have to go through it, but studies are now showing that what you eat and your lifestyle can have a significant impact on how your body deals with menopause. A good diet and active healthy lifestyle can reduce and alleviate it’s symptoms – this is the time to really pay attention to what you eat and how you live and in doing so, your body will thank you.
