So most of the Fruci Fit team were away in Nottingham over the weekend
For a Menopause Conference
With great speakers.
And one of the key takehomes?
A lot of the same things apply
🚀 Protein every meal (more on that below)
💪 Not ditching the carbs (just having enough)
👍 Resistance exercise to keep and build muscle (and help bone density)
😀 Vitamin D
And there are a few more things I could go into
(Which I will be here in the 5 day kickstart which starts today
But the one takeaway
Is that during these hormonal changes
There is less room for error
You might not be able to get away with as much …
So you may want to double down on the things we know work
Like protein intake
Think more protein & often rather than little & often.
Think at least 1.2g of protein per kg of bodyweight and then if you can 0.4-0.6g of protein per kg of bodyweight per meal.
Or for simplicity
hand sized portion of protein at each meal, like meats, fish, tofu, dairy and then including pulses, beans to help top it it up
