Working Executives:

Young women need a balanced diet to fuel their active bodies and minds. But at this point in life, healthy eating sometimes becomes a challenge. College life and work can interrupt normal patterns of eating. Unhealthy body image issues can take over. In addition, hormonal changes can lead to problems like premenstrual syndrome. The best thing a young woman can do is understand her own body and stay healthy by eating a balanced diet and getting regular physical activity.

Most working executives face long stressful hours, bad cafeteria food, travel and with almost no exercise time. As a result, the body is battered by stress hormones which in turn increase cholesterol, blood pressure and various diet related diseases. For working executives, life becomes stressful especially with office and household responsibilities and playing the role of a nurturer.

The Dreaded Menopause

No one looks forward to the time, when the woman body resets itself. Menopause is an individual experience for every woman, a time of transition, the end of the fertile years.

Menopause is caused by a fall in the amount of the oestrogen hormone produced by the ovaries. The decline/ absence of oestrogen can mean varied changes in energy levels, memory, bone health, hormones, urinary and heart health.

Research’s done recently focus on the effects of optimal nutrition on the health and wellbeing of the women around the time of the menopause. It is increasingly being found that good nutrition and optimising the intake of specific nutrients, together with small lifestyle changes can offer significant help in maintaining a healthy menopause and make a real difference to how women feel.

Menopause affects women in completely different ways, but the most common symptoms include hot flushes, sweating, insomnia, anxiety, impairment of memory and fatigue. Long term consequences due to reduced oestrogen are a decline in libido, osteoporosis, heart disease, even dementia.

Adding the right foods to your diet as you approach menopause can actually reduce or prevent menopause symptoms. And the earlier you make these dietary changes, the easier menopause can be.
