Are You Eating Enough Protein In Menopause?
As estrogen levels are dropping with the hormonal changes and the metabolic rate is slowing down during the menopause phase, it is helpful to track your macro-nutrients and see if you are eating enough protein.
Studies show protein will keep hunger at bay for longer and with regular weight training can make a huge impact on body composition and weight management during Menopause…….BUT are you getting enough?
In my online group we have all been tracking using My Fitness Pal for the last 2 weeks and the results have been fascinating. EVERYONE “thought” they were eating enough protein and NOONE was anywhere near.
If you are exercising the daily protein amount should be 2.2grammes per kilogram of bodyweight.
That will give you your daily total, you can then split that into however many meals you have.
Aim for about 100 – 150g and if you input this into My Fitness Pal is shows you exactly your macro split. Then the amount of carbs and fat ratio is up to you,
if you have oily fish one day that will push up your fat so lower your carbs, if you fancy more carbohydrates you can lower your fat for that day.
It can help you ENOURMOUSLEY with your weight management and take the guesswork out.
If you feeling stuck and “think” you are eating all the right things but not making the progress you want I would 1000% recommend it.
