They don't call it 'the change' for nothing because it sure changes things! I never struggled with my weight until menopause and it is admittedly very frustrating how hard I have to work to lose even a pound! I keep at it though because I'm not ready to quit!

Another common issue for women 40-50+ is hypothyroid. I was told that due to my hypothyroidism, I should limit soy. There's so much conflicting information out there.

This article is worth reading, especially for women, who are caring of their health. I found one more article related to hormones, you can find it on the website of Wellness MGT corp.

Helpful information. Thanks for taking the time to spell out some of the types of things to expect...and it helps explain a few things I've had to deal with! -- Food suggestions are "key" even though I personally avoid soy unless it's fermented.

Seriously? I appreciate Becky Hand's earnest efforts here. But the fact remains that mature women are one of the very visible demographic populations who are most neglected in U.S. medical research. It's not like menopause is an unexpected or "unusual" "condition," and the medical and medical research communities KNOW this. There are things covered in this article which, in 2016, could, and should, have more definite data (which would come from research, if it existed!). But so much research has not been done, and that reality is a disservice and a disgrace, both to people - women and our communities & families - and to science and the medical community. All the encouragement, guessing, and common-sense ideas and suggestions are not enough either to cover-up or compensate for the neglect of women's health, by researchers, by Big Pharma, and, perhaps especially, by politicians whom many of us actually did elect! Where is the accountability, and when are WE going to demand it? Thanks!

I thought that when I turned 50 I had some of the things of menopause and I thought that was all I would have. But here lately I have had them come back. I have night sweats in the day also it dont matter what time a day. Im crying a lot like if someone looks at me I cry. My cravings have gotten worse I cant live with out chocolate. I gain weight easily I was over weight before but its getting worse

Disappointed and very puzzled that this article says nothing about related weight gain. SMH

This article was informative but did not help me much since I am post menopausal.

Good article. However -- Seven to nine servings of fruits and vegetables per day is "a must"? Come on, who really gets 7-9 servings a day?
