    Calcium requirement is more, hence milk, yogurt, cheese, green vegges are are a must. calcium suppliments may be needed.Phyto estrogens are substances which could bind in the estrogen areas and reduce the menopausal symptoms.-Soy,beans,legumes,potatos, carrots,apples & yam.Consuming more of good fat,like flax seed,nuts,dry fruits,less sugar and more of fruits and vegetables will go a long way in keeping a check on your weight as tendency to gain weight esp. around the waist, is more.Drinking 2-3 litres of water is needed to prevent frequent urinary tract infections and dryness of skin and bones.Vaginal estrogen creams may be warrented at times for dry vagina & frequent infections.
