Does diet help menopause?

I have been trying to lose that "menopause" weight since January. Only lost around 4 lbs so I have decided to follow the low carb diet instead. My husband has followed a low carb lifestyle for two years, although he does cheat now and again. I have heard that this type of diet does help with peri, does anyone have any information about this. Thanks.

Re: Does diet help menopause?


I do believe that diet and exercise make a big difference in how menopause affects you.

I don't do low carb per se. Instead, I keep all the carbs in my diet but I do carbs that are low on the glycemic index instead. So, rather than having white rice with dinner, I'll have brown rice, multi-grain bread rather than white bread, I'll substitute multi-grain pasta or spaghetti squash for white pasta etc. As long as you stick to items that are below 55 on the glycemic index, you will lose weight.

This way, I'm never hungry, still get the benefit on healthy carbs and don't have to worry about fighting that menopausal weight.
