For many of my patients, menopause spells absolute misery. Hot flashes cut into their sleep and create heart palpitations. They frequently feel irritated or “off,” and they often sacrifice their sex lives during the transition.
Hormonal imbalances like estrogen, testosterone, and dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA), which decline around middle age, contribute to these and other issues. Altogether, these imbalances create a perfect storm for problems such as weight gain, mood swings, and crashing libido.
Many patients are surprised to learn that diet and lifestyle choices dramatically impact menopausal symptoms. Even if they’re watching calories, a high-sugar diet (and remember, all carbohydrates break down into sugar) can spike and crash insulin levels, storing fat, exacerbating inflammation, and creating a hormonal-imbalance domino effect.
Chronic stress and anxiety, which nearly every patient experiences, also contribute to hot flashes.
Those hormonal imbalances – especially insulin, which subsequently knocks other hormones out of balance – can lead to type 2 diabetes, heart disease, and polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), an inflammatory condition characterized by irregular periods, hormonal imbalances, weight gain, and infertility.
Altogether, it’s a dismal picture. However, after working with hundreds of women going through menopause, I’ve found a solution.
I developed the perfect plan to help my patients feel better, reduce their risks for diseases, and help them become the most fabulous versions of themselves overall.
From that plan came my Keto-Alkaline ™ Diet, which juxtaposes all the benefits of a high-fat ketogenic diet while minimizing its drawbacks by keeping your body alkaline.
Among its benefits, during menopause, a Keto-Alkaline ™ Diet can help:
My Keto-Alkaline ™ Diet is a two-step process: Before you go keto, I want you to get alkaline. My favorite way to get alkaline is with the Mighty Maca™ Plus, which contains the perfect balance of maca, turmeric, mangosteen, cat’s claw, resveratrol, and other nutrients to control inflammation and maintain alkaline balance.
You needn’t accept hot flashes, low libido, hormonal imbalances, and other menopausal miseries. As many patients can attest, my Keto-Alkaline ™ Diet can help you live a healthy, lean, sexually fulfilling and vibrant life.
I’d love to share more about this plan. Whether you’re new to keto or want to give your ketogenic diet an upgrade, my Keto-Alkaline ™ Diet can transform your weight and your health. You can learn more about it in my new eBook “The Secret Science of Staying Slim, Sane and Sexy After 40”.
Here are a couple Keto-Alkaline recipes to try with your NutriBullet:
Before making any major lifestyle changes, be sure to consult with your doctor to see if these changes are right for you.
