ABSTRACT: Learning Objectives To identify the biological changes associated with the menopausal transition. To recognize how lifestyle behaviors can optimize health for midlife women. CONDENSED VERSION AND BOTTOM LINE Several metabolic and hormonal changes occur during the menopausal transition that can affect the health and quality of life for midlife women. As women enter this transition phase, improved lifestyle behaviors, such as nutrition and physical activity, may help prevent negative health and quality-of-life outcomes, such as chronic disease. By following healthy lifestyle recommendations set by the Dietary Guidelines for Americans, the American Heart Association, the North American Menopause Society, and American College of Sports Medicine, midlife women can help improve weight issues, heart health, bone health, and vasomotor symptoms, as well as overall quality of life. SUMMARY STATEMENT This article provides guidance on the role of nutrition and physical activity during the menopausal transition for midlife women.
