JAY WRIGLEY 1 | Stick with the fat that comes with your animal protein. No need to add more!
presents episode 408 | Dr Jay Wrigley
Revero podcast with Dr Shawn Baker

Protein is at the top of the list of anything that will help with
hormonal issues…
-especially during perimenopause into menopause:
-thyroid dysregulation, due to
~decline of progesterone
~still having too much estrogen blocking
receptors so thyroid hormone cannot
get into body to respirate that cell

The thyroid gland needs a high protein diet…
-avoid relying on plant-based foods when needing to:
~convert T4 into T3 at a better rate &
~make it more metabolically active
The transition into menopause is much more smooth with
the right diet:
~higher protein
~dropping carbs
helps the endocrine system so much!

This avoids the problems of
-weight gain; hot flashes; night sweats; libido; skin dryness
By eating foods rich in protein and quality fats
-including organ meats with fat-soluble vitamins

How much protein?
-1 to 1.5 g of protein per pound of desired lean muscle mass
-so, if a woman, weighing 160 pounds wants to reduce to 140:
~eat 128g of protein a day
Example: 12 oz of New York Strip Steak: 90g protein
-add 2 eggs and that is enough for the day

The 3 declining hormones of late perimenopause:
-estrogen, progesterone, testosterone
If trying to do keto diet of 75 to 80% of calories in fat
But, with declining hormones, this is too much fat
‘I’m doing everything perfectly for keto’
-these women’s weight loss is stalling, so
-we raise the protein and lower the fat

“Stick with the fat that comes with the
animal protein…that is the right amount”
