    Do any hubbers have a recommended diet plan for menopause weight gain?

    I think some of the weight is fluid but overall I need to loose about 8lbs.

    Try completing eliminating all milk products.  Of course, this will require vitamin supplements.

    The lactose creates the thick middle section that females must fight.

    I love milk - this one is hard for me - no yogurt, no cottage cheese, no cheese.

    My mom had weight struggles with menopause. My mom solved them very easily and to this day she has no more weight problems: 1. Eat your heaviest meal in the morning (when you are going to need energy to spend in your day). 2. Eat less heavily for lunch. 3. If you can manage it skip dinner or eat a VERY light dinner and walk aftwards! Your metabolim doesn't work the same with menopause and tends to "hoard" calories, especially if you eat heavy at night and either plop down to watch TV or go to bed. It worked for her, hope it helps you!

    Walking 2-3 miles almost everyday has helped keep the pounds off plus cutting back on my  favorite sweets.

    Hi Seeker7, doctors recommend 4-5 times a week exercise which lasts about 45minutes. Any kind really from walking to swimming. Also stay away from caffeine and salt. Consume lots and lots of drinks (like soya milk) and food which are high in calcium like broccolies, cauliflowers etc.

    I have never actually studied the effect of menopause on weight gain, so this could be a potential topic for research. Menopause, is due to decline in hormones responsible for normal menstrual cycles, however, I am quite sure as to how this reduction in hormones contribute to weight gain. What I can recommend at the moment, however, is that you treat your weight gain similarly like everyone with weight issue. First thing to remember that the recommendation for a safe and healthy weight loss is to loose 1 to 2 lbs weekly. You can do this by in-cooperating aerobic exercises(like walking),strength training, and consuming a balance healthy diet(control your portion) each meal. aerobic exercise and moderate use of weights will help you to convert those extra pounds of fat into lean muscles. You will also be able to develop more fat burning enzymes which will help to burn the fat. Finally, you will be able to increase your basal metabolic rate even when  resting, when you exercise regularly(say 3o minutes minimum, 4-5 days wkly).

    I came across a diet plan called beelife whereby you lose weight while you sleep.
    Beelite capsules daily help put you into the deep sleep that your body needs to have a proper nights rest. This not only allows you to burn more calories in your sleep, but also keeps your Leptin hormone at its highest giving you that fuller feeling during the day.
