Menopause and diet: how to keep your weight during the holidays?

Jul 06, 2023

With the holidays approaching, it can be complicated to pay attention to your figure. And for good reason, since Christmas is also synonymous with hearty family meals and other celebrations! So, how to keep your weight during the holidays when you have menopause, Our experts team is about to tell you more now!

Why do we gain weight during menopause?

It is well known, when you are in menopause and even in perimenopause, weight gain is almost a fact in itself. In fact, about 50% of women gain between 4 and 6 kg during this period of their life.

For what ? In fact, weight gain is linked to progressively lower progesterone levels in your body. The consequence being that you tend to store more and more fat, but also to retain water.

It is generally at the level of the belly, the arms, but also the back that this excess fat is located. And, bad news, these few extra pounds are often difficult to lose, despite diet and healthy eating.

As a result, holiday meals can quickly turn out to be a real headache, between rich food and the desire to have fun. So how do you not gain weight at this time of year?

What if you were careful before the holidays?

So before depriving yourself completely during your festive meals, it is better to prepare. Indeed, be careful before the holidays and just as important as during. So here are some tips before you throw yourself headlong into sports lessons and other torments before the holidays:

  • try intermittent fasting: for those who don't know, the idea is to fast for 16 consecutive hours and then eat over an 8-hour period.
  • Eat more legumes: for those who do not like vegetables, unfortunately, you will have to be patient. And yes, before the holidays, going on a diet is a bad idea. On the other hand, being careful is much more effective then adding greenery to your dishes and, for meat, think chicken or fish strips.
  • Drink water: during festive meals, you will inevitably drink alcohol. This is why many nutritionists advise drinking plenty of water before the festivities in order to improve the functions of the liver.

In short, you will have understood that a few simple gestures can help you prepare well for the holidays and avoid gaining weight.

And during the holiday meals?

Of course, out of the question to deprive yourself! Foie gras, oysters, salmon toast and other refined dishes are waiting for you. Nevertheless, to help you take care of yourself during meals, here are some tips:

  • First, free yourself from all guilt. This will ensure better digestion, because if this is not the case, your body will tend to store fat more often.
  • Drink (more) water: Whether before or during your holiday meals, drink water. And yes, when you have menopause, staying hydrated is important in order to eliminate toxins more easily.
  • Choose your food: so yes, it is important to treat yourself. However, you can still take the lead and, for example, offer some raw vegetables for an aperitif. For the meal, why not have some salmon, seafood or even some poultry.
