OVEREATERS ANONYMOUS: ROSY DREAMS
I don’t know when I first started escaping into food. I remember blowing my allowance each week at the candy store on the way to school and hitting the cookie jar j came home to an empty house as early as the second grade.
I was not popular at school. I knew it was because I was fat, headstrong, outspoken, self-centered and inconsiderate. I knew j was an these things: my mother told me often Enough.
When I was lonely, food was my friend. It soothed and comforted me and filled the hole that was there when I felt unloved which was most of the time.
Notice I said “when I felt unloved,” not that I was unloved. It was many years, many pounds gained, lost and regained, many men — including a couple of husbands before I was to begin to learn the difference. I left home when I was barely seventeen after a blowup with my father. I felt he had turned on me and that without him on my side, life at home would be intolerable.
So began my long search for emotional security. If only I could find someone to love me, life would be beautiful. I had discovered alcohol during my senior year in high school. Miraculously, the weight came off. I made friends; I even dated a little. For the first time in my life I experienced a sense of belonging. At eighteen I joined the Air Force. My consumption of alcohol, which had been negligible, hit what was for me an alltime high. I never liked feeling drunk and out of control, yet I would chug-a-lug beer or down double shots of whiskey until I began to feel the effect. Then I would head for the food to sober up before going to bed. Eventually I eliminated the “middleman.” Food gave me what alcohol could not: a sense of being satiated yet still “in control.”
I thought being married would be a guarantee against loneliness, so at nineteen I married the first man who would have me. By the time our daughter was born a year and a half later, I weighed 178 pounds. All my rosy dreams had been shattered and I was miserable.
The next six years were filled with self-doubt. First my mother and now my husband told me how inadequate and difficult to live with I was.
Through great determination and strenuous effort I lost weight and when my second child, a boy, was seventeen months old, I left my husband.
Soon the old doubts and fears returned and with them all my lost weight. I was alone and desperate in a strange city, with no job, no friends and two small children to support.
Day after day I answered ads with the same result: nothing. I was too big to fit into a waitress uniform, my typing was poor and no one wanted an elephant for a receptionist.
Pressed to lose weight, I joined a health spa, only to give it up as hopeless two weeks later. I was tired of fighting; I finally accepted myself as I was — fat.
A few days later I read an article about Overeaters Anonymous. I went to a meeting, not with hope for myself, but for my daughter who was clearly following in my footsteps.
That was almost three years ago. Through the fellowship of OA and constant effort in working the twelve steps of our program, I have begun to accept and care for myself. With this has come the ability to love others unconditionally.
A short time ago I became aware that I have always been so preoccupied with my need for my mother’s acceptance that I never once thought of her need to be accepted by me. When I made an effort to change, our relationship improved dramatically.
I often have relapses into the kind of thinking that would have me believe I need one special person to love and accept me all the time. I still have times of fear and loneliness, but they are shorter and less frequent now. Instead of allowing them to last days or weeks, I find that I am able to reach out to someone almost immediately. When these feelings trigger an emotional “binge” I have been able to stop short and take an honest look at myself.
Today I am maintaining a weight loss of 75 pounds, and I have found within me a Power that can do for me what I could never do for myself.

OVEREATERS ANONYMOUS: THE SEARCH FOR LOVE
At the age of eleven I seemed to recover from a sickly early childhood. I began to “bust out” all over. Coming back from the nurse’s office when I was in the fifth grade, everybody wanted to know how much I weighed. That meant I was a fat kid. I was ugly, too, because in those days girls with long hair were considered old-fashioned. The girls with short hair were the beautiful ones and of course my mother and dad wouldn’t cut my hair. It was too long and beautiful and heavy and wavy. But I cried until I finally got my way. When my dad took me to the barbershop and the barber cut my hair there were tears in Dad’s eyes. But the haircut didn’t make me attractive because I was wearing size 18 clothes. Can you imagine that on a four-foot, ten-inch kid? I never did get to be very tall, but I grew very wide — almost as wide as I was tall. Jean Harlow was the idol of the day and I believed that someday I would be beautiful like her. I would be thin, too, because I would go on a magic diet that would be easy to follow and I would have a beautiful figure. Things didn’t work out quite that way. When I became sixteen my mother had a nervous breakdown and it was unbearable in the house with just my dad around. It was during Depression and he didn’t work much. I was not allowed to date so I sneaked out. My first “steady” had a brand new car, and I thought he must be a bootlegger because they were the only people who had any money in those days. I knew because my own parents made and sold wine and beer until my mom was arrested for selling it. We always had beer and wine around the house. My parents drank moderately and only with meals, but my older brother and I found our home brew very pleasant in the evening. We didn’t have any soda or other beverage except well water, so we drank beer or wine.
The man I began dating at sixteen drank whiskey. He brought it with him when we went out in his eight-cylinder Oldsmobile. I loved riding in that car, and I liked going to the movies. So when he threatened to stop dating me unless I “proved” I loved him, I gave in. But I didn’t love him. Not even when I had to marry him.
In my mother-in-law’s house, where we went to live, I began drinking heavily. Everyone else drank. I suspected that both my husband and his mother, as well as the man she lived with, were alcoholics. That was my life at sixteen. I was fat and I was an alcoholic; and I had a miscarriage.
During the war years, I went to work in a steel mill. That’s where I found out about diet pills. It was the magic way to go.
When I became pregnant again, I became angry. I did not want a baby. I had divorced my husband once, but my brother had persuaded me to go back to him. After our little girl was born, I went back to the diet pills. It was the only way I could keep my figure — not as slim as it should have been, but still not too bad.
When we moved to a new house, we took in roomers. One young man caught my interest and I told him he had to go. My husband was very jealous.
In my third pregnancy, I gained 50 pounds and I nearly died during the delivery. After my recovery, things did not go well at home. My husband and I began drinking more, sometimes to the point of battling with our fists and throwing things at each other. We really got cut up. But I wasn’t going to take his battering; I was going to fight back, even if it killed me.
I began, counseling, which was to last for years. I didn’t tell my counselor much about my drinking and blackouts, but she once told me that an alcoholic is not a person who is down in the gutter but a person who needs alcohol in order to function. That was me, all right. Between eating and drinking I was one sad sack. I had heard of Alcoholics Anonymous, but that was not for me — it was for the drunken slob in the gutter.
Shortly after our son was born, I wrote a Christmas note to the last roomer we had, telling him we had a little boy now and inviting him to drop in and see the baby. He moved back in with us, and he made himself very useful. He could diaper the baby and do all sorts of things around the house. He took over and my husband let him. My husband was lazy. Stamp and coin collecting and watching television were his idea of recreation. He wasn’t interested in mowing the lawn or feeding or changing the baby — and after all, Art was dependable, Art was around all the time. He liked Art.
Well, you guessed it. I began to think, why do I need a husband? I needed Art. I could feel the attraction between us growing. And one day in May I found myself in his arms. I knew he wouldn’t move out; I didn’t want him to.
After four years of counseling, I asked my husband for a divorce. He refused. For one whole year we fought in court. And I drank. At last, the divorce was final and Art and I slipped quietly over the state line and were married. “Now I have heaven on earth,” I thought, “My diet pills to keep me thin, my liquor to keep me happy and a husband I love.” But something was wrong. We were both drinking. I knew that marriage number two was going to break up.
In late November that year, Art told me he was taking his Christmas vacation. He packed and said, “When I come back, I’m not guaranteeing you that I’m coming here to live. I may get another room somewhere.”
After he left and the children were in school, I lay on my bed and said, “Oh God, if you’re for real and you can hear me, please change me, because I can’t change myself.” About a week later, my husband came home. I stopped drinking. That was my introduction to the twelve steps. I had hit bottom, found my Higher Power and turned my will and my life over to the care of God. I knew now that AA was where I belonged. I have been sober twenty-one years and ten and a half months. When I found out that OA was like AA and used the same twelve steps, I sent for a beginner’s kit. There were no meetings in our area, so I asked God for three things: that I would lose my weight; that I would find a place for a meeting near a highway; and that people would come. I lost all my weight while waiting for the beginner’s kit and looking for a meeting place. I found one within a mile of not one but five highways. From our first meeting, OA in this area has grown to sixteen groups. I am the outgoing chairman of our intergroup, now leaving my beautiful groups behind and moving to another city. I learned that there are several OA members waiting there to take me to meetings. What a beautiful thing it is to know that OA has so much love in it for people who really want the recovery. Back in the Thirties I wore a size 18 dress. With diet pills, I managed to go down to an 11. Now, through OA, I have been maintaining a weight loss of about 40 pounds for four and a half years. And I now wear a size 3 dress.

RELIEF STRESS TO HELP END BACK PAIN: STRATEGIES FOR ANGER AND IRRITABILITY
If you are experiencing anger and irritability as your stress level increases, let the following suggestions help you work through this experience and move forward to a more relaxed frame of mind:
1. Accept the fact that anger is a human emotion that you are entitled to feel at times.
2. If anger is consuming your entire day, come to grips with the fact that you need to explore some avenues for behavior change. This may involve seeing a professional, talking out your reaction with a friend, or joining with others in the same situation to talk through your feelings.
3. Remember that constantly being angry is detrimental to your overall health.
4. When anger gets out of control, apologize to those you may have hurt.
5. Whenever possible, do not let yourself get into situations that you know will be unpleasant.
6. Ask your physician for a referral to a professional who can assist you in relaxing and reducing the tension that occurs from anger.

WHAT IS A BALANCED DIET AND ARE YOU EATING IT?
A balanced diet is something easily found in books and rarely on the table. Though nutrients are widely scattered all through our food supply, soil depletion, storage, food processing, and cooking destroy many of them. Still, there are enough left to make balancing meals important. After all, supplements cannot work without food and the better the food you eat, the more effective your supplements will be. Unfortunately, no possible “balanced” diet is likely to meet nutritional needs today.
Nevertheless, to know whether or not you are balancing your meals, you should become familiar with the four basic food groups, and the recommended number of portions that should be eaten from them each day. Serving sizes should be individually determined; smaller amounts for less active people, larger amounts for teenagers and people who do physically strenuous work.
Milk group
Milk, cheese, yoghurt, foods made from milk.
3 servings per day for a child
4 servings per day for a teenager
2 servings per day for an adult
4 servings per day for pregnant and lactating women
Meat group
Beef, veal, pork, lamb, fish, poultry, liver, or eggs. Dry peas, beans, soy extenders, and nuts combined with animal protein – including eggs, milk, and cheese – or grain protein can be substituted for meat serving.
2 servings per day
3 servings per day for pregnant women
Fruit-vegetable group
Citrus or other fruit rich in vitamin С [or tomato juice] should be eaten daily. Dark-green, leafy, or orange vegetables and fruit should be eaten three or four times a week for vitamin A.
4 servings per day
Grain group
Whole or enriched grains, bread in any shape, hot or cold cereals, macaroni, noodles, or other pasta.
4 servings per day
The recommended servings, as outlined by the National Research Council, are designed to supply 1,200 calories. You are expected to adjust the size of the servings to suit your own individual growth, weight, and energy needs.

BEST NUTRITION FOR MENOPAUSE: CONVENIENCE FOODS
Baked beans
Most of the baked beans in the supermarkets will contain a fair amount of sugar. If the label states ‘sugar-free’, they may well have an artificial sweetener added instead, so do check the ingredients list carefully. Whole Earth makes excellent, sugar-free, organic baked beans which are sweetened with apple juice.
Soups
Again it is difficult to find those which do not contain sugar, artificial sweeteners or chemicals. Baxters have a good range of acceptable soups including Mediterranean Tomato, Minestrone and Carrot and Butterbean, but do check the ingredients for each different flavour before buying. Mr. Bean has a range of bean-based soups which contain no sugar and are also gluten free.
Ready-made meals With all the best intentions in the world it may sometimes be necessary to have a supply of quick, ready-made, wholesome food. For a quick meal, I would tend to use pasta and make a sauce with a good quality tinned tomato (like Napoli) and serve with a salad. Or just have plain grilled fish with vegetables and/or rice. Whole Earth and Meridian have Italian sauces which are useful if time is really short. Most of the ready-made sauces in the supermarkets contain sugar, so again it’s worth reading the labels for a while, until you are familiar with the brands which are best for you. There are some reasonable frozen meals available, but keep these for emergencies and cook from fresh where possible.
Snacks and biscuits
Fresh fruit, dried fruit, nuts and mixed nuts and raisins are all good and tasty to use as a snack at any time. You can get good quality crisps and tortilla (corn) chips from health food shops and some supermarkets. Some manufacturers use sea salt in these products. With crisps and chips check whether the oil is hydrogenated. If it is, buy another brand. Ryvita and rice cakes (there are many flavours) are fine to eat; also oatcakes so long as they do not contain sugar.
If you suffer from bloating or digestive problems, you may have a wheat allergy which should be checked by a good nutritional therapist. Biscuits and bread will just make the problem worse. If you can happily eat wheat, buy sugar-free biscuits. Clearspring makes a good range of cookies (sesame, muesli and hazelnut varieties) which contain a high proportion of organic ingredients and are sweetened with maple syrup and corn malt.
Infinity Foods sells delicious organic biscuits including carob, carob chip, fruit and nut, malt syrup waffles and hazelnut waffles. Again some of the ingredients are organic and the waffles, for example, are sweetened with maizemalt syrup. These would have to be obtained from a good health food shop (you could always ask for them to be ordered).
There are a number of fruit bars and carob bars on the market which may satisfy your taste for a snack. Do not substitute your ordinary sweet foods with diabetic ones, which contain sorbitol. Sorbitol is a sugar alcohol which occurs naturally in some fruits and is metabolized in our bodies. For commercial use, it is synthesized chemically from glucose. Diabetics are only recommended to eat foods containing a certain amount of sorbitol per day because it can have adverse side effects such as flatulence, diarrhea and bloating. It does not raise the blood level significantly as would sugar or pure glucose but it is chemically processed, not natural, and should be avoided.

BEST NUTRITION FOR MENOPAUSE: INCREASING NATURAL FIBRE IN DIET
Fibre in its natural form is helpful in balancing blood sugar levels, but it is mainly known for its action on the bowel and the beneficial effects on problems such as constipation. Fibre binds water and increases the bulk of the stools so that they are easier to eliminate from the body. This prevents putrefaction of food. If food stays in the bowel too long, it starts to putrefy and ferment (produce gas) inside you, leading to problems of bloating and flatulence which are common during the menopause. Fibre also aids digestion, increases your feeling of fullness and removes toxins from your body.
Although there has been a great deal of interest in fibre over the past twenty years, the focus has been on adding bran to a bad diet to increase the fibre content. However, this misses the point. Bran is a refined food because it is contained in the grains of cereal plants and then stripped away to be sold on its own. Bran contains phytates which have a binding effect on certain vital nutrients such as iron, zinc and magnesium and this makes these minerals less absorbable. The phytates also bind calcium, making it harder for the body to absorb this mineral which is so essential for bone health during the menopause.
It makes much more sense to eat the bran in the form that nature intended by eating the grains in their whole state.
Recommendations for increasing natural fibre in your diet
Include:
• Plenty of fresh fruit and vegetables (cooked and raw).
• Whole grains (brown rice, whole-meal bread, wholegrain crackers and pasta), beans, nuts and seeds. When you eat muesli (containing raw flakes of various grains) it is necessary to soak it beforehand, preferably overnight, to enable the phytates to be broken down so they do not affect mineral metabolism.
Avoid or reduce:
• Reduce your intake of refined carbohydrates including cakes, bread and biscuits containing white flour and sugar.
• Avoid the use of bran on its own and when added or made into breakfast cereals.

THE FACTORS WHICH CAUSE PMS
There are a great many factors which are thought to contribute to PMS (premenstrual syndrome).
• Lack of essential fatty acids and prostaglandin El (see below)
• Poor diet (too much tea, coffee, chocolate, sugar and dairy produce are common causes)
• Drink, drugs, and smoking
• (Possibly) environmental pollutants, e.g. petrol fumes, formaldehyde in furniture, chemical sprays
• The oral contraceptive pill
• Gynecological and hormonal problems
• Stress and problems in life
• Lack of exercise
Pregnancies (PMS symptoms sometimes get worse after a second or third pregnancy)
Operations (PMS symptoms can occur after surgery such as a hysterectomy or sterilization, or abdominal surgery)
• Alcohol
• Candida albicans, the yeast infection, and food allergies. Candida albicans can either exacerbate or be mistaken for PMS. Food allergies are sometimes connected with PMS, and can make the symptoms worse. Often Candida albicans and food allergies go together.

BE BREAST AWARE: CHECK THEM OUT
You need to become familiar with the shape of your breasts. You need to know their appearance and how they feel. Then you will notice if anything starts to change. Spend time looking at them in the mirror, perhaps when undressing for bed or before getting into the bath or shower.
1. Stand in front of the mirror, raise your arms above your head and move from side to side to get a good look at your breasts. Get to know how they feel and look at the shape and outline. Become aware of the position and shape of the nipple.
2. Lie on your back with your head on a pillow. Examine one breast at a time. Raise your right arm and put it behind your head. Using the tips of your left fingers, feel around the right breast in small circular movements. Check both breasts and armpits in the same way.
What to look for:
1. Any small lump in the breast or armpit.
2. A dimple or dent in the skin when lifting your arm.
3. Any reddish, ulcerated or scaly area of skin on the breast or nipple.
4. Any bleeding or discharge from the nipple or moist, reddish areas which don’t heal easily.
5. Any change in nipple position, i.e. pulled inwards or pointing in a different direction.
If you are concerned about anything you find, you should consult your doctor immediately. More than 90 per cent of breast tumors are first detected by women themselves, including some cancers which can be felt but go undetected by a mammogram.

ALTERNATIVES TO HRT: HISTORY OF PROGESTERONE
Progesterone has a long history. It was originally obtained from sows’ ovaries and in the late 1930s it could be synthesized from placentas in large amounts. So placentas were quick-frozen after delivery for later extraction of progesterone. After a number of years a way was found of converting diosgenin from the wild yam (Dioscorea villosa) into progesterone. This diosgenin became the starting point in the chemical manufacturing process of progesterone which was converted to the synthetic progestogen first used in birth control pills and later in Hormone Replacement Therapy. Because progesterone is a fat-soluble compound it was usually ineffective when taken by mouth because it was metabolized by the liver and never got into the bloodstream in sufficient amounts. This led to progesterone being given intramuscularly by injection and also as a suppository inserted into the vagina or back passage. It has been used for many years in this way as a treatment for pre-menstrual syndrome. It is now available in the form of cream to rub on the surface of the skin and is sold in the USA over the counter as a cosmetic. In the UK it is sold on prescription only, which upsets many of its advocates. They claim that because the progesterone is ‘natural’ it is safe to use and should be available over the counter here too.
This ‘natural’ progesterone is often thought of as an extract from wild yam. In fact, progesterone itself is not found in wild yams. It is synthesized from the plant by a number of chemical steps which means that it is not ‘natural’ at all. The assumption was that if we ate wild yam our bodies could convert it into the biologically active human hormone progesterone. This is simply not true. While progesterone can be synthesized from diosgenin, it can only be done by a chemist in a laboratory. Our bodies are just not capable of synthesizing progesterone from a substance such as wild yam. We do not have the necessary enzymatic pathways to produce this conversion. And the fact is that these progesterone creams do not contain any wild yam at all, a fact confirmed by Dr John Lee, the Californian physician who introduced ‘natural’ progesterone to the UK and has written most widely about it. As the demand for progesterone grew, the wild yam became overharvested and other sources had to be found. Now the main manufacturers use soya beans instead. The creams are fortified with the addition of USP-grade progesterone, a white powder that used to be derived from wild yam and is now more often derived from soya beans. Progesterone is called ‘natural progesterone’ to identify it as being chemically identical to the progesterone produced by humans and to differentiate it from the synthetic progestogen used in HRT.
Why, anyway, should a progesterone supplement or replacement be necessary? Cholesterol is the starting block (the precursor) of progesterone and all the other sex hormones in our bodies. As most of us know the worry has usually been that we have too much cholesterol in our diet. So the difficulty is not that we have some undesirable shortage of this progesterone starting block but that our hormonal pathways necessary for this conversion start to shut down.

DIETING: DIET PROGRAMS, HELP FROM OTHERS
Every Diet Works for Somebody
I cannot recommend a particular diet. After all, no single diet scheme works for every overweight person. But every diet works for somebody-even this former fatty. So, if you seriously want to lose weight, find a diet plan that fits your personality and problem.
That’s how I did it. Up to 20 years ago, I weighed 185 pounds. By standard weight tables, I was at least 30 pounds overweight. So I started to count calories. I changed what I ate, how much I ate, where I ate, when I ate. It took a long time-at least 2 years-to get used to eating the new way, but nothing has changed since. My scale fluctuates between 154 and 158-never more, never less.
Now you can turn to the other reports to find the kind of diet program that might work for you. And if it succeeds, you’ll end up looking better, feeling better, and, perhaps, living longer.
Getting Help from Others
Theodore B. Van Itallie, of St. Luke’s-Roosevelt Hospital Center in New York, says, “Anybody can diet for 2 weeks with any diet. It’s losing all the overweight and keeping it off that counts. And that’s hard.”
Without anybody around to support you, it’s harder still. And if somebody actively interferes, losing weight may be impossible. A quarter of all the dieters surveyed by Parade said that a family member or friend made it difficult for them to succeed.
One dieter in seven blamed a spouse. (Wives were blamed more often than husbands.) Coworkers were no help, either. And while few dieters indicted their offspring, the presence of children in the household deterred dieting.
It’s no wonder that so many overweight people turn to peers for help. Each week, 500,000 Americans attend classes at Weight Watchers. Probably an equal number end up at TOPS, Over-eaters Anonymous, the Diet Workshop, and dozens of other groups where they lose weight and keep it off.
Dr. Richard B. Stuart, of the University of Utah, found that, 15 months after reaching goal weights, more than half of Weight Watchers’ clients stayed close to their goals.
Weight Watchers started out by dispensing low-calorie diets to its members. Under Dr. Stuart’s influence, Weight Watchers has added behavior modification and an optional exercise plan.

EVENING PRIMROSE OIL AND BREAST PAIN
Women with breast pain have been found to have normal, or near normal levels of linoleic acid However, they have abnormally low levels of the metabolites of linoleic acid.
For some reason, these women are not metabolizing linoleic acid successfully. This may be because the conversion of linoleic acid to the next stage, GLA, is slowed down or blocked by such things as stress, a high saturated fat diet, or a high alcohol intake. For whatever reason, something is inhibiting the activity of the delta-6-desaturase enzyme, which is needed to convert linoleic acid to its metabolites.
Evening primrose oil works because its active ingredient is GLA, which by-passes the metabolic block. So the level of essential fatty acids is brought up to normal.
By normalizing the level of essential fatty acids, the metabolic cause behind the abnormal sensitivity to hormones’ is corrected.
A total of 188 women have been studied in double-blind, placebo-controlled studies carried out at the University Hospital of Wales in Cardiff, at Ninewells Hospital in Dundee, and at Plymouth General Hospital. The length of trial and the doses given were different in each centre: 8x500mg per day in Cardiff (2 months) and Plymouth (5 months), and 6x500mg in Dundee (3 months). Women with breast pain not due to cancer or any other obvious cause were entered into the trials, and received at random either the treatment (evening primrose oil), or a placebo. Most of the patients in the trial – 141 – had cyclic symptoms. The other 47 had non-cyclic.
The women were seen at the start of the trial then again at monthly intervals in the pre-menstrual phase of their cycle. Each woman assessed the severity of pain and other breast symptoms, in particular lumpiness, heaviness and tenderness.

CHANCES OF PREVENTING ARTERIAL DISEASE IN DIABETICS
One of the most stimulating new facts about diabetes was discovered by Professor Y. Goto and his colleagues in Japan. They looked at the cause of death in a large number of diabetics. The post-mortem findings showed that 6-5 per cent had died from coronary disease, a much lower percentage than in other countries. The comparable American figure is over 50 per cent. The implication is that environmental factors can strikingly lessen the risk of heart attack in diabetics. We saw that there were national differences in the amount of fat people eat – the Japanese eat less than one fifth as much saturated fat as Americans do. This suggests that Japanese diabetics may be protected from heart attack by their lower intake of saturated fat. This is not an isolated finding: Dr McGill’s international study also showed that atherosclerosis of the coronary arteries was less pronounced in Mexican and Costa Rican diabetics than in diabetics in the U.S.A.

MENOPAUSE: CONTROLLING WEIGHT AND MOOD
Some weight gain during the menopause is perfectly acceptable. As your ovaries reduce their production of hormones, your body fat acts as a manufacturing plant for oestrogen. Those last 4.5kgs (101b) you were trying to lose will serve you well. Fat produces oestrogen all our lives. Being actually overweight is of course unhealthy. Ideally women should have 25 per cent body fat in contrast to men’s 15 per cent. Women face a lot of pressure from the media and society in general to keep slim and this, at the extreme, has resulted in a number of eating disorders like anorexia and bulimia. Many other women spend much of their lives yo-yo dieting which in the end completely distorts their attitude to food. How widespread this obsession is can be gauged from the fact that the diet business in the UK has an annual turnover of 6 billion pounds, having grown by nearly 200 per cent in the last eight years. Yet statistics tell us that women are getting heavier on average, not lighter. Preparing for the menopause involves some hard thinking about your diet and nutrition. You may well find that changing your eating habits to a healthier pattern will, over time, bring about some of the elusive weight loss you have always longed for.

BEST NUTRITION FOR MENOPAUSE: CHOOSING HEALTHY FOODS
Flavourings
Choose from ginger, garlic, herbs (fresh and dried), lemon juice, sea salt, Lo-Salt, miso (soya-bean paste), mustard (check for added sugar, chemicals, etc.), arrowroot or kuzu for thickening gravies and sauces, mayonnaise (Kite makes one without sugar), soy sauce (choose organic where possible and avoid any makes with monosodium glutamate; good brands are Clearspring, Westbrae, Eden), tomato ketchup (Whole Earth makes a very good organic one) and salad dressings (with no sugar or chemicals – try Cardini’s, Newman’s and Chalice which have good ingredients and are sold in most supermarkets).
Nuts
You can enjoy almonds/pecans, Brazil nuts, walnuts, cashews, pistachios, pine kernels (pignolas) and cob nuts. They can be eaten as a snack with raisins during the day or used in cooking or salads. Pine nuts added to brown rice during cooking make an enjoyable change.
Seeds
Try sunflower, sesame, pumpkin, poppy and caraway seeds. These can be added to salads or cooked vegetable dishes or put in with rice when cooking.
Seed and nut butters
Tahini (creamed sesame seeds) can be used in salad dressings and is also used in making hummous (a Greek dip made from chickpeas which is sold in supermarkets). Sunita makes a no-salt tahini and Meridian and Whole Earth have a good selection of nut butters. Try to avoid those that include palm oil as it is a saturated fat.
Sweeteners
It is better to rely on the natural sweetness of foods themselves. If you are making cakes, try baking a carrot and raisin or banana cake. Cook with eating apples for apple pies and you will find you do not need to add any sweetener, but you could add raisins or sultanas for extra sweetness if needed. Date slice is wonderful because dates arc naturally sweet.
As your taste buds grow accustomed to doing without the very powerful taste of refined sugar you will come to appreciate the sweetness of vegetables and fruits more.
Try maple syrup, concentrated apple juice, barley malt, date syrup, honey (use sparingly and avoid those which are ‘blended’ or me ‘produce of more than one country’ as they are often heated to temperatures as high as 71°C (160°F) which destroys their goodness).
Flapjacks made with barley malt are delicious. If the label says ‘flavoured’ in the case of

DIETING FITNESS: WHY DIETERS LOSE MORE WILLPOWER THAN POUNDS
That most diets fail in the long run is a fact, but why they do continues to be a subject of controversy.
The “set-point” theory is one of the most widely accepted today. It holds that fatness is caused by the setting of an area in the hypothalamus (part of the brain), sometimes referred to as an appestat, which controls your appetite for food. Obviously, everyone’s appestat is not on the same setting.
You can stay trimmer by moving more than by eating less!
According to recent research, the amount of fat cells you have, which were acquired at birth, craves more fat when the stores in these cells fall below a certain level. (The notion – popular a few years ago – that overfed infants would produce extra fat cells, has now been rejected by most scientists, who feel that heredity is the major determinant.)
Glycerol, which is bound and released according to the fat content of a cell, along with the blood level of insulin, informs the brain of the body’s fat reserves and sets your appestat accordingly. Great in theory, but, unfortunately, external influences can also affect your body’s appestat. The aroma and taste of delectable food, for instance, can raise your appestat. Certain drugs, such as amphetamines – and the nicotine in cigarettes – can lower your appestat. But once the pills or cigarettes are discontinued, your appestat goes right back up to where it was – and the weight returns.
Frustrating? You bet it is. But success is still attainable. The good news is that regular exercise and effective physical conditioning can lower your appestat! In other words, you can stay trimmer by moving more than by eating less. Instead of the temporary and potentially dangerous weight loss you get with pills or cigarettes, you can safely drop pounds, keep them off, and – with the right exercises and nutrients – become physically fit at the same time!

NATURAL ALTERNATIVES TO HRT FOR MENOPAUSAL SYNDROMES: LOW LIBIDO
Lack of interest in sex may have a great deal to do with just feeling tired. Follow the recommendations for lack of energy to see if that makes a difference. If we are tired, the only thing we can think about when we get to bed is going to sleep!
Lower oestrogen levels of course are often blamed for lack of interest in sex. But is this true? It’s interesting to note that while most women are told about falling levels of oestrogen and progesterone, nobody ever mentions testosterone. This is the ‘male’ hormone linked with male characteristics such as a deep voice and greater body hair, and is also connected to drive and motivation. But women have testosterone circulating in their bodies too, and it has been found that as we enter the menopause the level of this hormone can drop. However, some women actually register an increase in testosterone at this time and these women feel their sex drive has actually increased, not fallen at all.
Nutritional therapy
Take:
Magnesium — 300mg per day
Zinc — 15—30mg per day
Vitamin B6 – take as 50mg pyridoxal-5-phosphate once per day
Herbs
American ginseng is effective in increasing energy levels. Others herbs which normalize hormone balance can be used, such as agnus castus and black cohosh.
Aromatherapy
Add 7 drops of damiana and 7 drops of geranium to a carrier oil. Damiana is a well-known herbal aphrodisiac.

HRT: WHAT ARE THE SYMPTOMS OF THE MENOPAUSE?
The list of problems widely believed to be associated with the menopause makes lengthy and frightening reading. It really makes you wonder if there has been a fear campaign from interested parties to encourage women to take HRT. As you can see the list includes life-threatening problems like osteoporosis, as well as psychological disorders:
• hot flushes,
• night sweats,
• irritability,
• declining libido,
• osteoporosis,
• weight gain,
• vaginal dryness,
• ageing skin,
• changes in hair quality,
• headaches,
• mood swings including depression,
• lack of energy,
• joint pains.
The truth is that many of these so called ‘menopausal symptoms’ may have little to do with the menopause at all. Some are just a natural part of the ageing process and affect middle-aged men just as much as they affect women. Others may be related to particular events in our lives that have nothing to do with our hormones. The classic example of this is the ‘empty-nest’ syndrome which many women have to face up to in their late forties or early fifties when children leave home. This can be quite a crisis. You carry on worrying about your children, but you may no longer have daily contact with them. To try to explain away these powerful and legitimate feelings in terms of falling hormone levels is to dismiss many women’s important experience of motherhood. At this time in their lives many women are trying to cope with elderly parents too. It can be very stressful, far more stressful than looking after any number of young children. Few things are more depressing than having to watch a much-loved parent in the final stages of illness. It is quite wrong to blame all these emotional problems on the menopause. When you analyze it there are only a few symptoms that can be truly called menopausal. This is not to say that these symptoms are trivial. Some women suffer severely from them. Others sail through the menopause without any problems at all.

OVEREATERS ANONYMOUS: SINK THE LOLLIPOP!
In a family of ten children, I was number nine and the only girl. My father left us when I was a year old, and my brothers, never short of playmates, did not deign to play with a girl. At the age of eleven, I was sexually molested. It does not seem far-fetched to suspect that these experiences made me wary of the male sex. Now in my fifties, I feel I have not been able to trust men enough to want one for a husband. Boyfriends I have had; a permanent relationship, never. It was well before I entered my teens that I began to build my ship. I made it out of pure chocolate, and it was my sanctuary for thirty-nine years. Aboard my ship, I worked my way up to ten to twenty candy bars a day plus a variety of other chocolate concoctions. By the age of sixteen I had reached 240 pounds.
Within the huge body was an emotionally contorted child. When things got out of hand, as they usually did, I expected people to look after me. I grew angry with God when He would not do as I wished and turned to the medical profession, demanding that doctors do for me what God wouldn’t.
I set impossible goals for myself and became angry when I didn’t reach them. But candy solved all my problems. It relieved depressions, eliminated the need to make decisions and was a handy, all-purpose reward, as appropriate for failure as for success. Many times I ventured out of my magic ship, vowing never to return. But I always did. I was safe there and no one else could come aboard to criticize me. During my brief absences I visited many doctors. They all said the same thing, “Lose weight or else.” I did; in fact, I went up and down as regularly as the waves in the ocean. It began to be clear to me that death was not going to wait until I grew old to claim me. But I really didn’t care. I had decided by this time that I would die on my ship and die happy. I did not realize how long it takes or how painful it would be. When I contracted rheumatoid arthritis at the age of thirty, the doctor asked me, “Have you gone through an emotional crisis recently?”
“My whole life has been an emotional crisis,” I replied.
My condition of psychic chaos was on slow simmer until one June day when I was told that I would die if I didn’t lose weight. (As if I didn’t know.) I was also informed that there was now a way to lose weight which didn’t require willpower. It was a surgical procedure called the intestinal bypass. Out of everything the doctor said, I heard only “You can eat and still lose weight” and “You will have a lot of diarrhea.” I waited until my weight reached 308 pounds and then submitted to the operation. Thus began eight years of hell. The lowest point my weight reached after the bypass was 240 pounds. Then it began to yo-yo. I had diarrhea so badly I could not leave the house for a whole year. I finally got so I could control this condition somewhat, and then the flatulence started. It was very degrading. After three years, I started having kidney trouble. I underwent two operations for the removal of stones and then a third to remove a kidney. That was the beginning of a five-year ordeal during which I had twenty-five operations, eleven related to the damaged kidney. I suffered acute attacks of pain which the doctors could not explain. I had rashes and allergies. I was extremely short-winded and could hardly move about. The only social life I had was visiting doctors and, occasionally, my family. Three days after my kidney was removed the doctors told me I had to have the bypass reversed or I would develop trouble with the other kidney, in which case I would have less than three years to live. I decided at this point that it was too painful to die. Still, I could not give up my only solace. I retreated to my ship. I ate because I was sick and I was sick because I ate. Eight years after the bypass was performed, it was reversed with the warning that I had no chance of pulling through. But again I was saved, though it seemed to me that death would have been better. I felt only pain. Nothing else. Now I was convinced that I had lost my last chance of ever being thin. I had tried everything and there was absolutely nowhere else to go. As if on cue, the incision opened up and became infected. It drained for four months. The doctors gave up and said it would drain the rest of my life. It was imperative now to blot out my situation. My weight climbed back up to 291 pounds. Suddenly, I became aware of what I was doing. I knew I did not want to reach the 300-pound mark again. For the first time I said, “God, help me!” On Valentine’s Day I received what I had asked for in the form of a telephone number a friend had given me more than two years earlier. I had put it in a drawer and forgotten it. I called the number and on the day of love I hobbled into my first OA meeting. I could hardly walk across the room. I was told later that they didn’t know if they were going to have to carry me out after the meeting. I was a mess physically and emotionally. But at that very first meeting I saw a ray of hope. I went to another meeting the next night and I started abstaining the following day. On that day the incision which the doctors said would drain the rest of my life stopped draining and began to heal. Out of the total desperation in which I came, I was willing to accept anything OA had to offer. I did not understand much of what was going on, but I knew I wanted what I saw. I started the program by doing everything I was supposed to do: abstaining, speaking, volunteering for service, writing and giving away my inventory, becoming a sponsor. I went to as many meetings as possible and worked the steps to the best of my ability. It took me four months to begin to understand what I was doing. I had felt for years that I had lost my faith. I could not ask God for anything because He never heard me. Then one night I was told, “Action is the magic word,” and I found that I had not lost my faith. It had been there all the time, waiting for me to start acting on it. Once I started the action, things got better. Now I am learning to take responsibility for myself. I have found a small part of me. I know I am a human being and a child of God. That is a wonderful thing to know. It’s so much better than being a “freak of nature.” I am aware that my life was an emotional crisis because I let it be. My physical problems are beginning to disappear. I grow stronger every day. I now sail into meetings (I leave my cane at home). At one meeting I climb two flights of stairs. I read all the literature I can get my hands on and enjoy every word. I let my Higher Power run my life and, friends, you cannot believe the things I accomplish in twenty-four hours. I visit people in the hospital, write, read, call OA friends and always have time to talk to them if they call me. All this from a person who, less than two months before coming to OA, spent Christmas in a wheelchair. It’s a beautiful life this Higher Power has created for us, and I for one really want to live and enjoy it. Off in the distance sits that chocolate ship of mine. I do not have to go back to it unless I choose to. Thank God, today I have a choice. Stick around, folks. I am going to sink the Good Ship Lollipop.

OVEREATERS ANONYMOUS: THE DANCER
From the start I was fighting mad at life and at my parents. It was a constant battle of their will versus mine, and I hated them for being right. But underneath the hate, I loved them. My food problem, which reflected my approach to life, started early. My weight was not affected, however, because I was very active. At six, I worshipped the dance teacher next door. She had a gorgeous figure and I wanted to grow up to have a body like hers. My mother suggested that I take lessons, and thus began my career as a dancer. My life was soon entirely dedicated to dancing. I was either taking lessons, teaching or performing. The best part of appearing in shows was the free food afterward. And all I really cared about after a day of teaching was getting to the candy machine and the fast-food stores. I felt tired and lazy most of the time. I practiced grudgingly only because my mother insisted that if I wanted to be a good dancer I would have to work at it. I began taking my mother’s diet pills and loved feeling alert and energetic. I counted calories, weighed myself obsessively every day and became very thin. After graduating from high school, I left home to dance at state fairs with a tour group. I finally had time and money to do as I wanted, but all I wanted to do was eat and sleep. I wound up breaking my diet every day. Having convinced myself that I felt superior to the other dancers, I was quite happy to be alone with my food. The diet pills kept me on a superficial high during working hours, but by the end of the summer they were losing their effectiveness. I gained 25 pounds. My costumes were splitting and the boss was about to fire me. I found stronger diet pills and got my figure back, then entered the “Miss Dance of America” contest. I scored highest in my performance, but I was so nervous I flubbed my interview with the judges and was awarded runner-up instead of the title. New York City was the place to be to pursue my career so I moved there. In the next few years I had one job after another, coming close to getting fired from each one on account of gaining weight and being habitually late. One night I came face to face with the real nature of my sickness. At four in the morning I threw a coat over my nightgown and raced to an all-night food store where I talked them into letting me take the food on credit. Returning to my apartment, I started shaking in the elevator, unable to wait. I ripped open the carton of ice cream and began digging into it with my teeth like an animal. Nothing mattered but to eat as much as I could as fast as possible. I didn’t even feel guilty, just void of thought. Finally, it seemed to be over. I was nauseated, disgusted and so numb that I didn’t care. But the obsession came back. I had to give in just to get through the night. I returned to the store and again I couldn’t eat the stuff fast enough. At last, I fell into a drugged stupor and slept for about twelve hours. I woke up with a confused silence in my mind, bewildered and afraid. I had a bloated hangover — my face was puffed up and I felt ugly and ashamed. I knew I was like an alcoholic or an addict with food but I didn’t know what to do except to start another diet. I cleaned up, took a diet pill and felt hope slowly coming back. “Binging is not where it’s at,” I observed to myself. “It’s definitely a nowhere road.” I wound up binging the whole day. There were many nights like that. When I grew noticeably fat, the director threatened to fire me if I didn’t lose weight. In a panic, I vowed never to do it again. But the conflict was too great. Each time, my weight went a little higher. Between jobs, it soared. I had developed the art of people pleasing and got along with almost everyone (except bosses) in a surface way, but I felt that something was very wrong underneath. Whenever I visited my family we had screaming arguments. They couldn’t understand how anyone in New York could like me. It was as if I were two different people. My involvements with the opposite sex were as messed up as the rest of my life. I had one bad love affair after another, pushing relationships to an end or becoming overly dependent. Either way, I ended up alone with my food.
I quit using amphetamines after my last show business job and gained 60 pounds. I tried every new diet I could find, went to hypnotists, psychiatrists and a fasting farm, but nothing could stop me. When I saw people I knew on the street, I hid in shame. I became almost violent if my parents or others who loved me tried to help. I hated myself and wished I would die. I couldn’t understand what other people saw in life. What made them want to get up in the morning? What motivated them?
My parents told me about a television program on Overeaters Anonymous. It sounded good, but I didn’t want the answer to come from my parents. I was enrolled in a commercial diet club (for the third time) and insisted it was going to work. After a week on the diet club regimen, I started hinging. Finally, I gave up and went to an OA meeting. From the start, I knew that this was the answer for me. It was different from a diet club. Weight was not the main issue. They were talking about a whole way of approaching life. They also kept mentioning God and a Higher Power, which turned me off, though I tried to be open to the idea. I had never believed in God — or in anything. I began to see that this was my problem. It seemed impossible to stay abstinent. I hated to tell my sponsor that I had done it again, but I forced myself to be honest. The binging went on for eight months. Then one day, the latest “new beginning” turned out to be the last one. I have abstained, one day at a time, ever since. It has been four and a half years, and it is still a precious miracle to me that I can enjoy my food without eating or craving more. I believe that my abstinence is a gift which I finally became ready to accept and appreciate — a gift I am willing to go to any lengths to keep. The program has shown me what to do to avoid a binge. Just for this one day I can do it, with help. I have lost 60 pounds, but I believe I am just as capable of slipping now as ever, so I try to stay grateful and to develop my dependence on God instead of food.
Without the food to hide behind, I began to see how afraid I was of life and people. But when I reached out, people were there for me, giving me loving support instead of rejecting me. It has been a steady process of deepening trust and of growing to love myself and others, even with defects.
I did not return to show business after I began abstinence. I chose, instead, to join the business world. During the first two years, I came close to being fired because of the negativity and anger which I could no longer suppress with food. But working the OA program has changed my personality and attitudes. Now I enjoy being responsible and trustworthy. Small accomplishments such as getting to work on time make me feel good.
For a while, my life was built completely around OA and my job. I still attend meetings and sponsor people, but I have gradually opened up to other activities. I have begun developing friendships with men based on honesty rather than fantasies and games. Even my relationship with my parents is improving. I recently tried skydiving, which I would never have considered before OA. Throwing myself out into the sky for all I was worth was the ultimate moment of trust in God and myself!
I never knew life could be like this. I have no idea where it will lead except that, if I stay abstinent, it will be in a positive direction. None of this would have happened if I had given up during those first months of OA when I was still binging. The most important thing I heard in those meetings was, “Keep coming back!” Thank God I did.

BENEFITS OF EXERCISE AND SEX AT MENOPAUSE: APPETITE AND LOVE LIFE
Your appetite
As well as releasing the feel-good endorphins exercise stimulates other brain chemicals. Corticotropin releasing factor (CRF), for instance, suppresses appetite so that after exercise you simply don’t want to stuff yourself with food even though you have used up plenty of calories. Even after this effect wears off, the kind of food your body demands is very different. Another brain chemical released by regular exercise is neuropeptide. This is the neurotransmitter that increases our need for carbohydrates – it ‘tells’ our body what kind of fuel it needs. Carbohydrates are the body’s prime source of energy. Fat and, to a lesser degree, protein, give us energy too. But the main source should be carbohydrates, the starchy foods, like rice, potatoes, wheat, rye and oats, which should ideally make up about half our calorie intake. So when we exercise, which uses up energy, our bodies release brain chemicals which make us eat more of the foods that give us more energy. It’s a very clever system that demonstrates yet again how our bodies, given the chance, will find the right balance.
Your love life
When we are full of energy and vitality, we are much more interested in sex. You may feel you are just too tired to have sex. But by actually doing exercises that require effort and energy in the first place, you will end up feeling much more energized. You know how your interest in sex can perk up when you are holiday? There are no pressures, you are more relaxed and you also have more energy. Why wait for this to happen perhaps once a year? Get yourself fit and active and enjoy making love.
Exercises like swimming and cycling which promote the blood supply to the vaginal area can help with vaginal dryness. Special exercises developed by Dr Arnold Kegel in the 1940s can also make sex more enjoyable by increasing the strength of your vaginal sensations. They counteract vaginal dryness because they stimulate the blood supply. And they strengthen the muscles in the pelvic area which helps with stress incontinence (‘leaking’ small amounts of urine when you laugh or sneeze).
These are some of the simplest exercises to do. First of all try stopping your urine flow in midstream by finding and using the relevant vaginal muscles. Once you have located these muscles, you can exercise them by just contracting them whenever you think of doing it. Draw the muscles up for a count of five and then relax. Repeat this about ten times. You can also use these muscles while actually having intercourse: squeeze your partner’s penis just by contracting them.
I found that these exercises really helped me. After the birth of my third child, who was a fairly large 4.3kg (9lb 9oz), I suspected a vaginal prolapse which then seemed to rectify itself. A couple of years later I had the dragging feeling again, and consulted my GP. He confirmed that I had a slight prolapse and told me to come back for treatment when it had got worse. I found this rather unhelpful. My objective was not to let it get any worse, in case it reached the point where I might have to have a hysterectomy. So, deciding to practice what I preach, I looked for some alternatives. I went to see an acupuncturist, took herbs and food supplements and did the Kegel exercises. Ten years later I still feel fine. It could be argued that perhaps the herbs on their own would have worked, or just the acupuncture and that it was nothing to do with the exercises. Perhaps. Whether it was one of those or a combination of all three, it worked.
There are other exercises that help keep the circulation going and enhance your sex life.
