weight gain with a healthy diet - post menopausal
Hi - I am 56 and post menopausal. I have gained 3 stone since menopause. I did have a period of very high stress. I walk about 10 - 20 miles a week. I was a nutritionist so I know a lot about diet. I eat no gluten, sugar, dairy and eat essential fats, tempeh, sea food and fish with high veg. I still gain weight. I have to water fast to keep it on a plateau.
I recently had my bloods done and I am less than 0.02 Progesterone and 51 Oestrogen. Would this still make me Oestrogen dominant? I have insomnia unless I take Melatonin and I have pain on intercourse with vaginal dryness. Any advise I am grateful for!!
