Providing adequate diet for perimenopause

Supplementing elderly women's diet
Improving nutrition of older women
The failure to produce oestrogen naturally, which occurs at menopause, along with insufficient intake of calcium, causes a loss of bone density. Low fat and nonfat dairy products are the best sources of calcium. One quart of skim milk a day supplies a woman's daily calcium requirement.

The lack of oestrogen also causes atherosclerosis, thickening of the waist and abdomen, and accumulation of body fat. These changes can be minimized by a diet low in fat and rich in vegetables, fruit and whole grain foods, with a moderate amount of lean protein. Regular aerobic, muscle-building and flexibility enhancing exercise are a vital addition to one's lifestyle.
