[Episode 162] How does your diet affect menopause? Top tips from nutrition coach Julia Tyrer

Rewind 20 years for a moment. ⏪ 

Britney and Justin broke up, everyone was talking about the Atkins diet, and a study dropped that would taint the perception of HRT for years to come. 

In fact, the scare it caused continues to be felt today, with plenty of women putting hormone replacement therapy on the ‘not for me’ pile. If that’s you, this week’s podcast guest is not here to try and persuade you to do anything that’s not right for you. 

Julia Tyrer is here to arm you with advice that she’s found has worked for her and her clients, covering everything from what body identical HRT is, what foods you should be eating during menopause, and why every woman needs to sign a very important petition. 

Here’s why you need to tune in

Maybe you’ve hit menopause and you’re wondering why the exercise regime you’ve always followed is no longer working. Maybe you’re worried about how the symptoms of menopause might affect your performance at work, or maybe you just need to hear Joy and Julia having a giggle about how much time they’ve spent talking about horse wee! This episode is jam-packed with info. 😏

Here’s what to listen out for:

[05:38] How do you combat menopausal symptoms through nutrition?

[08:20] Why you need to sign the petition.

[13:45] If menopause is an individual journey, how should you tackle it? 

[23:23] What’s the deal with HRT?

[32:42] What does body identical HRT mean? 

[36:29] Which foods contain phytoestrogens? 

[42:42] The importance of natural light in menopause. 

Aside from pressing play on this episode, the most important action you can take today is to go and sign the petition Julia mentions. Helping to make menopause a protected characteristic will ensure that employers make reasonable adjustments for women with symptoms and help protect women’s jobs in midlife. 🏃🏃🏃
