Bye bye kebab at midnight

Updated: May 28

We often desperately looking for on a wonderful diet, which are aimed at reducing our waist, emphasize metabolism and abandoned we cry in pillows and eating our helplessness with biscuits and ice cream. Diverse diets are offered to women of a certain age: keto, Mediterranean, Norwegian. I believe that first of all it is to eat smarter. It is known that with age our metabolism slows down, we lose the ability to produce some of the substances, we're slower in assimilating many of the beneficial ingredients from the food, we regenerate much more slowly, more things harm us.

Until recently I was able to eat a kebab at 2 at night, sleep deep and wake without any consequences and with a flat belly. Today it seems to me that I only gain weight from the smell of donut, no to mention the fact that when I eat too late a dinner then I have a problem with sleeping.

We must accept the fact that our bodies will never look like the bodies of teenagers from fashion magazines. We are mature women with beautiful shapes and inner beauty.

Of course, the most important thing is that our bodies are healthy. Then we will be able to enjoy the fullness of our mature life.

And it's a healthy, thoughtful diet that can help us do that. So, a kebab only shared with a friend, preferably with a large portion of salad and no fries.

I found an interesting book writhing by Amanda McQuade Crawford. It contains a lot of interesting advice and natural solutions to various menopause problems. Let me take her advice and share with you the information I found here.

She was identified two lists of products that we should avoid or reduce their consumption and those that we definitely need.


  • Fats - especially animal such as hard cheese and red meat - les than 30-40g daily

  • Excess protein - les than 50g

  • Packaged convenience food

  • Refined flour, sugar, junk food

  • Additives - especially monosodium glutamine

  • Table salt, tamarin, soya sauce and similar

  • Alcohol - especially red wine?! (aggravates hot flashes and night sweats even than other alcohol; despite the many antioxidant benefits by resveratrol in red wine, it increases risk factor for breast cancer) - sensitive women can drink pomegranate juice or organic grape juice which are rich with resveratrol without alcohol.

  • Caffeine

  • Nicotine

  • In addition, avoid overdependence on phosphorous -rich food, such as a mono - diet of legumes: yellow corn. nuts, and parsnip - because phosphorous in on unbalanced diet diminished calcium. However, the phytoestrogens of many legumes and the essential fatty acids of raw nuts and seeds have tremendous benefits for menopausal women.

And here I cite the words of the author with whom I agree 100 percent! "As with most things in life, the key here is moderation and common sense"


  • Whole grains - brown rice. buckwheat! (admit who knows what it looks like? 😄), whole wheat with brown and wheat germ, whole oats, other grains)

  • Fresh fruit in season, organic if possible

  • Red, yellow and green vegetables

  • Various root vegetables (carrots, beets, burdock in soup, turnips, rutabaga)

  • Leafy green vegetables, of course organic if possible - all kinds

  • Food sources iron like dried apricot (better soaked for easier digestion) or raw pumpkin seed

  • Sprouted seeds and legumes - for good quality essential fatty acids which helpful to immunity, nerves and hormonal balance; and enzymes which help digestion of proteins. Green sprouts provide an array of vitamins, minerals, phytoestrogens, and chlorophyll to sweeten the belly and the breath

  • Diuretic foods - help prevent water retention and bloating (cabbage, cucumber , pineapple , parsley, watermelon and cantaloupe)

  • vitamin B complex - stabilises blood sugar and ensures healthy nerves
