Women's Nutrition

Eating well is one of the best ways you can take care of yourself and those who depend on you. What you eat makes a big difference in the way you look and feel. A healthy diet gives you energy to get through your busy day, supports your mood, helps you maintain your weight, and keeps you looking your best.

What you eat can also be a huge support as you go through different stages in your life. Your food choices can help reduce PMS, boost fertility, combat stress, make pregnancy easier, and ease the symptoms of menopause. Whatever your age, committing to a healthy diet will help you look and feel your best so that you stay on top of your commitments and enjoy life.

Nutrition in your Twenties:

  • In her twenties, a woman needs extra calcium to build bone, especially if she's physically active. She should also include soy, believed to protect against cancer and heart disease, in her diet.

Nutrition in your Thirties:

  • Many women are putting off pregnancy into their thirties and beyond. During this lifestage, she will need to increase her intake of certain amino acids and stay away from certain foods that could harm the fetus.

Nutrition in your Forties:

  • In her forties, a woman's needs have changed significantly. Her metabolism slows down and, depending on her lifestyle, she could be losing important vitamins and minerals.

Nutrition in your Fifties:

  • A women's need for calcium is particularly keen during this decade when bone loss speeds up. Her need for "heart-protective" foods also increases once her estrogen levels decline with menopause.
