But the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics says weight gain and menopause don't have to go hand in hand. The academy offers this advice:
- Get plenty of regular exercise, including both aerobic and strengthening exercises.
- Limit caffeine and spicy foods to help control hot flashes, and drink plenty of water.
- Load up on fruits, whole grains, omega-3-rich foods such as salmon, soy, calcium-rich foods such as yogurt, and dark, leafy green veggies.
- Limit salt consumption, and don't have more than one alcoholic drink per day.
