All women will go through menopause. However, medical research has proved that in many cases the symptoms we associate with menopause — such as joint pains, mood swings, weight gain and hot flushes — are peculiar to a western diet and virtually unknown in countries like Japan, where soy-rich foods are a key part of the diet.

Overview

All women will go through menopause. However, medical research has proved that in many cases the symptoms we associate with menopause — such as joint pains, mood swings, weight gain and hot flushes — are peculiar to a western diet and virtually unknown in countries like Japan, where soy-rich foods are a key part of the diet.

In Healthy Eating During Menopause, Marilyn Glenville explains how your diet can work as a natural alternative to hormone replacement therapy and give you results far superior to any drug. Marilyn and Lewis have created menus for all the meals in the day with recipes rich in the three beneficial food groups — phytoestrogens, essential fatty acids and antioxidants which are contained naturally in many everyday ingredients. Guaranteeing no risks and no side effects, these recipes will not only help you to reduce and even eliminate certain symptoms, but also guard against osteoporosis and other illnesses.

Recipes include Luxury Homemade Muesli, Lentil and Fruit Pilaf, exotic Caponata or Jambalaya, and gorgeous Mixed Berry Souffl� Omelette. Good for your health and even better for your appetite, Healthy Eating During Menopause is invaluable for any family that wants to avoid many of today's illnesses and to enjoy eating their way to optimum health.
