I am a great believer in quality of life and making sure every day is the best one yet. After a near death experience and being forced have a full hysterectomy at 48, it was a no brainer for me to begin talking HRT. I am a big fan of this medicine which helps keep menopause at bay and me from becoming itchy, bitchy, scratchy, moody, bloated, dried up and miserable.
My top tip for menopause, if HRT is out, is to start introducing houmous and chick peas as much as you can eat, in your daily diet. If you can mix this pulses food group with some cold red peppers, some oily fish and a five mile daily walk, I can guarantee you will feel less like a bloated pig and more like a healthy goddess.
Women got the short end of the deal when it comes to middle age and without air brushing, botox, trout pout lips and HRT, turning 50 is the most dreaded mountain for any of us to climb.
These are real ways to stay looking and feeling younger, fitter and healthier, helping get rid of that constant bloating round the middle that always has a mind of its own and always appears when you least want it to.
The truth is simple when it comes to feeling good after 50, you must give up alcohol, smoking, chocolate, meat, caffeine, any white carbs and replace them with water, fruit, brown rice, mint tea, fish, vegetables, loads of houmous and then, before you know it you will look and feel like you again.
