Weight management keys during menopause

Changing behavior to focus on specific types of foods was correlated with short- and long-term weight loss in menopausal women, according to a study in the September issue of Journal of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics.

Weight loss at 6 months had significant associations with fewer desserts, sugar-sweetened drinks, and fried foods, and dining out less often, as well as increased fish consumption. At 48 months, weight loss had significant associations with reduced intake of desserts, sugar-sweetened drinks, and cheeses, along with increased consumption of fruits and vegetables.

Bonnie: Elementary stuff, but always good for reaffirmation.
