Eat more healthy fats
Healthy fats are essential for people’s metabolisms as it “fires up” their fat-burning rate and reduces spikes in blood sugar.
When it comes to losing weight there are such things as “good fats” (monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats) and “bad fats” (saturated and trans fats).
Liz revealed good fats are “especially important” for women during menopause, explaining: “We actually make our hormones from cholesterol.”
Foods high in good fats include:
Oily fish – salmon, mackerel, herring and sardines,
Nuts and seeds – nut butter, chia and flax seed are all good sources of high-quality good fats.
Liz added: “I also recommend taking a daily Omega-3 fish oil supplement to help boost brain, body and skin, especially from mid-life onwards.”
By eating healthy fats in moderation, women can control their appetites and prevent overeating, therefore promoting weight loss and maintenance.
