i really wish i would just change it all completely and stick to just ground beef and rice, but i havent
ive obvi cut out liver treats
i supp her diet with a bit of taurine and glycine
as for her food i use freeze dried food from Tuckers but every bag food from our pet store has organ meats or some sort of added fish oils
def open to finding something new

Here’s a recent picture of my waist. I do have some loose skin but I’m 54 and have given birth before so I’m fine with it. No one sees my abdomen anyway except my husband. I was primarily low A through out the whole time. In 2017 it was not purposeful. I just had a lot going on and was eating very basic foods that coincidentally were pretty low A. I went back to eating more in-line with peat style suggestions for about 6 months from the end of 2017 until I read Grant’s books in the summer of 2018 and after that I have remained mindful of my vA intake although not always perfect due to working on the frontlines during covid. Edit: I’m also short at 5’1.View attachment 62342

@Blossom - Thanks so much for sharing! You're a great inspiration (all of your posts, including this one)

@kaybb, I just eat the foods that agree with me best which is mostly beef, lamb, chicken, turkey, oats, rice, white corn, cucumber, iceberg lettuce, cucumbers, apples, and rice/pea protein strategically around work outs. I eat other things here and there but those are my staples. I don’t necessarily think what I eat is best for anyone else though. I think we all have to experiment and figure it out for ourselves.
Edit: I just realized I put cucumber twice and thought I’d edit it but reconsidered because I love cucumber! Hahaha
Thank you for info!! Cucumbers twice for me too!
For you, No berries? OJ? Milk? I like your list, I’m a dairy lover since following RP though. I think I’m behind in what’s being talked about, w/RP foods. (also did the carrot salad)
Do you take rice/pea protein before or after work out?

@kaybb, Peat’s recommendations never really changed but this forum started to open up to the low vA/toxin angle a few months ago after our Admin @charlie felt he had witnessed enough people healing/improving on that approach over the last several years.
I do enjoy some other fruits and foods occasionally. I just listed the staples that personally work best for my body. I had to stop eating what theoretically should be optimal and works for other people and focus on what works for me because at the end of the day (and beginning hahaha) I’m the one who has to live in this body. :)
I usually have the rice protein within 30-45 minutes after a workout for muscle protein synthesis. Before working out I will have a solid meal of real food that is protein focused. It seems especially important to get enough leucine for building muscle in menopause because females become anabolic resistant in that phase of life. The fact is that regardless of aging and menopause I still have responsibilities that require a certain level of strength and stamina so I’ve just been making adjustments to help me thrive right now. I don’t think everyone needs to do what I do by any means.

I have done really well on rice protein, so this is especially good to hear. And taking after workouts, I’m trying that. The carrot salad is now out, looks like. I’ve some catching up to do.

Do you take a Leucine supplement?

@kaybb, I’m glad to hear rice protein works for you too ma’am. I haven’t tried just a leucine supplement yet because I’m sure I also need some calories/energy after a workout. It’s a great idea though and I believe some female athletes use a similar tactic with combination amino acid supplements. My understanding via Stacy Sims PhD is that in the peri/menopause stage of life women need 3.5g of leucine within 30-45 minutes after a workout to have optimal muscle protein synthesis. It would be a good experiment (and also convenient) to see if just taking some leucine with an ordinary snack after exercise works as well as a protein forward meal. Let me know how it goes if you try it out please.

I’m thinking about putting the female specific information in the Female Corner thread or starting a new one on building lean mass for women. We have very little help with this in general it seems and it becomes more challenging with age but definitely still possible!

I would love to learn more about building lean mass. I lift weights 3 times/week. But still don't feel like I am getting anywhere.

@kYgirl, Regardless of your age I find these recommendations on protein for active females a good place to start.

“Protein is structurally essential: It’s found in every cell and tissue of your body. The problem is, most active women still aren’t eating enough, especially if they’re following the current dietary guidelines, which call for eating 0.8 gram of protein per kilogram of body weight (1 kilogram = 2.2 pounds), which generally equals between 45 and 50 grams for a 135-pound adult woman. That amount is to maintain nitrogen balance and prevent muscle loss in sedentary women! It’s to prevent deficiency and considerably less protein than active women really need. In fact, a 2022 meta-analysis concluded that adults should be taking nearly twice that amount (1.5 grams per kilogram of body weight) if they want to maintain and/ or augment muscle strength along with resistance training. I and many others contend that amount is even higher, closer to 1.8 grams per kilogram of body weight, and with age, that can be closer to 2.0–2.2grams per kilogram of body weight! Adequate protein is especially important for women. Our hormonal fluctuations often put us in a catabolic state, so depending upon our menstrual cycle and menopausal status, we may be more inclined to break down than to build muscle. Women should pay attention, especially after ovulation and during the luteal (high-hormone) phase after ovulation when progesterone rises. Progesterone breaks down protein (as well as carbohydrates and fats) to provide amino acids as the building blocks for the uterine lining. We need slightly higher doses of protein (about 12 percent) in times of elevated progesterone to mitigate those effects and maintain our muscle mass.”

@shanny, I’ve never found a blend but I’ve blended them myself before. The pea protein is more complete but since I eat meat I’m not as concerned about that aspect. I just prefer the way the rice protein mixes more smoothly. Pea tastes a little better though. I’ve tried many different brands. For rice protein I like Terrasoul, Naked and Zen Principle. It’s a little harder to source organic plain pea protein but Now makes one that’s from yellow peas. I’ve not been able to determine the carotenoid content though if that’s a concern for you (which it is for me). Naked brand has a nonorganic pea protein sourced from the US and Canada which is also important to me. I’d like to find one that’s both organic and sourced in the US/Canada if possible. I do seem to tolerate pea protein fine fwiw but have mainly been sticking with rice protein recently and using pea more sparingly but some people might weigh things differently on what’s important related to Amin acid profile, organic status, additives, source and cost. Admittedly I only have so much time to research the various protein powders available so I’ve opted towards organic and no additives/plain but if you or anyone finds better options please share!

@kYgirl, thank you. I think I remember that now. My apologies.
In menopause we need about 3.5g of leucine within 45 minutes post workout to optimize muscle protein synthesis/build muscle. I highly recommend the book Next Level by Stacy Sims PhD for active menopausal women. She emphasizes that we are not small men at any stage of life but most of the fitness information floating around is based off men. Men are easier to study because they don’t have the hormone fluctuations we naturally experience as women. Following fitness regimens that may have worked ok for us before often fail in peri/post menopause because things change and to stay strong we have to work with our new reality. It may be that just having leucine post workout will be enough for you to build muscle through. Lots of subtle (or not so subtle) things change as well such as how we need to hydrate, our ability to regulate temperature, our fueling etc so if you try prioritizing protein and increasing leucine and are still have some nagging issues I’d definitely read her book. Finding good information specifically for women is hard and even harder in menopause. We don’t have to give up though and we can stay strong into our senior years with a little effort and good information. I just love being strong and energetic enough to do things like jump on the trampoline with my young nieces. It’s really about quality of life for me personally and I’m not ready to succumb to frailty.

Thank you so much for this information! Will definitely look into this.

Awesome info, I would love a thread on this.
I’ve been helping w/a family emergency and now back to normal, about to try the leucine and protein after workout. I’ll let you know I I experience anything !
