Although this seems obvious… how do we ‘know better?’
More importantly, how are you seeking out information so that you can make informed choices?
Choices that are going to balance your midlife hormones, optimise your health, AND assist your body in releasing unwanted weight.
I believe that your health depends primarily on you knowing what to put on the end of your fork.
So even though you’re bombarded with confusing AND conflicting information, I encourage you to keep seeking.
Follow people who have your best interests at heart.
Not those who have an agenda to push or a financial gain to be made out of you being sick.
Deciphering this is NOT easy, I agree.
ONE of the studies I take comfort from is the Blue Zones data, which shows the happiest, healthiest, and longest-living people in the world eat…95% plant foods.
Yep, 5 places in the world Okinawa, Japan; Sardinia, Italy; Nicoya, Costa Rica; Ikaria, Greece, and Loma Linda, California ALL eat predominantly plants.

It’s hard to ignore this kind of worldwide epidemiological research, especially when each cultural group is eating different foods but they’re mainly plants.
Marrying this with the research in the last decade that has elevated the status of fiber – which is ONLY found in plants.
Fiber is essential for way more than keeping you regular – although for women’s health this regularity (daily!) is crucial.
80% of your immunity relies on a thriving microbiome, which is only possible when those trillions of good gut bacteria are being fed fiber.
Are you starting to think you might ‘know’ better?
Before we move on let’s just clarify what the plant foods are:
Whole grains (like oats, rice, quinoa)
Legumes (beans & lentils
Healthy plant fats (avocadoes, nuts & seeds)
Eating more of these foods helps balance women’s hormones, improve their health, and helps their body’s shift unwanted weight.
Now I hear it all the time…women blaming their declining health and expanding waistlines on their midlife hormones.
I gently blow that out of the water and help my clients see that it’s predominantly what they put on the end of their fork.
This is good news!
It puts you back in the driver’s seat of your health, rather than a victim of your age and hormonal activity.
This is how I help women over 40 achieve their health and weight loss goals.
By making a slow step-by-step transition to eating more plants.
