I just had a call with a new client, and she’s confused about how to eat. She’s just starting to feel symptoms of perimenopause … weight gain and fatigue are her biggest concerns, and she is super stressed out about it.

Here’s the thing – there’s not one way to eat that’s right for everyone. But here’s a good place to start.

At every meal eat:

  • 1 serving of protein. A general rule of thumb is to aim to eat half your body weight in grams of protein each day.
  • 1 serving of healthy fats. Olive oil, ghee and avocado are good sources.
  • 2 servings of veggies. Or more. And remember, eat the rainbow. 🌈

When it comes to carbs, think slow carbs over fast carbs, for example: oatmeal vs. breakfast cereal, and brown rice vs. white rice.

And because these are general guidelines, you need to tune into how food makes you feel. When are you hungry? What’s happening with your energy? What are you craving?

Questions? Let’s grab a call.
