Women are often poorly nourished at the onset of menopause:
bulletThe obsession with slimmness persists, along with its perverse side effects;
bulletMany women simply put on weight with age, even though they eat less;
bulletEven though fat consumption has been dropping over the last several years, hydrogenated fat consumption remains excessive;
bulletFrom adolescence on, women do not consume adequate quantities of calcium;
bulletFor many women, the distribution of protein throughout the day is clearly inadequate;
bulletConsumption of foods rich in zinc, magnesium, vitamin B6 and folic acid has not reached satisfactory levels, which may well have an adverse effect on the nervous and cardiovascular systems;
bulletThe lack of diatary fibre remains acute and may well explain why constipation and diverticulitis are more frequent after menopause;
bulletThe consumption of fruits and vegetables rich in potassium is too low to prevent or alleviate the problems of hypertension that often appear after age 50.
