Remembering it’s NOT deprivation, it’s a CHOICE. However, I think the changes are more acceptable and perhaps reasonable if we can relate to our body’s chemical reaction during Menopause to poor diet (unintentional) and high carbohydrate intake. Women may not naturally have the best grasp of proper nutrition and may be wasting unnecessary calories…. empty calories.
So let’s talk science…high sugar and/or high carbohydrates spikes our blood sugar and Cortisol. In fact, high Cortisol at bedtime can be a common occurrence during Menopause which affects our sleep pattern and blood sugar. Our body can literally be gaining weight overnight creating the horrendous muffin top often associated with high Cortisol. Even one glass of wine after dinner can have long lasting negative effects on our blood sugar. Our insulin weakens with age leading many of us down the road of becoming pre-diabetic or insulin resistance. Our body simply can’t recover as quickly from the spikes caused by sugar and carbohydrates. It can actually take days to recover. Eating off the grid of clean eating also causes discomfort such as bloating and water retention. Another reminder of the science of clean eating!
Here are 5 Takeaways:
My message is clear! Remember the science behind eating clean and picture the outcome. Optimal health!
Remember not every day will be perfect! However TODAY IS A NEW DAY! Set your intentions and create a positive mindset around clean eating! Its ALL about Science!!
