Menopause and Your Diet: How They’re Related
What you eat and drink helps the body function. It gives your body energy and strength and helps your brain function properly. Some foods have negative effects, while others help boost your brain’s ability to focus.
During menopause, your body is undergoing many hormonal changes that can cause brain fog. The last thing you want to do is make your brain “foggier” by eating an unbalanced and unhealthy diet. Simple changes to what you eat in a day can clear the fog and get your focus back on track.
Many diets that decrease your chances of brain fog during menopause typically eliminate a type of food – like processed foods or sugar. There are specific diets that are proven to help increase mental clarity and focus.
How Menopause and Your Diet are Related
Adopt a Low-Carb Lifestyle
A low-carb diet, such a ketogenic diet or the Atkins diet, may help keep your brain more alert during the day. Experts claim this is because Western diets are carb-heavy and cause a glucose imbalance in your body.
Eating a hoagie for lunch and washing it down with a soda will cause a spike in glucose, which causes your body to overcompensate in the amount of insulin it produces to process your blood sugar. After your glucose levels have rebalanced and dropped back down, it can cause sluggishness.
Processed foods contain ingredients that are foreign to the body, or not naturally produced, and can cause inflammation.
Diets such as intermittent fasting, ketogenic/high-fat diets, the DASH diet (Dietary approaches to Stop Hypertension), and the Mediterranean diet, while not proven for long-term success, provide better energy and improved cognitive function. Current “trend” diets such as Whole30, which eliminates processed foods and focuses on whole, healthy ingredients, help purge the body of impurities. The impurities in processed foods that alter chemical imbalances in the body also cause brain fog.
A Healthy Balance
The right proportions of carbohydrates, protein, healthy fats, and alkalizing fresh vegetables significantly affect your mood, brain function, and overall health. When a healthy balance for your body has been determined to make you feel your best, it’s time to fine-tune you hormones.
By using supplements and scientifically adapted pills to suppress the symptoms of menopause, you can be on the path to eliminating brain fog.
