Development of Gourmet Medical Cooking Workshop for Lifestyle Changing and Its Affect on Perimenopausal Women
Subjects that participate in the practical workshop will improve their metabolic indexes, decrease their weight and improve their quality of life, in contrast to the participants that will take part in the nutritional consulting sessions
Participants will be randomly assigned to a dietary consultation-only control group or to a gourmet medical cooking workshop. The workshop will consist of 9 lessons with the following lessons: introduction, fats, phytoestrogens, carbohydrates and fibers, calcium and low calorie diet, party's recipes, shopping and farewell dinner. All the lessons will start with half an hour theoretical introduction, followed by a 2.5 hours "hands on" session under supervision of a medical chef. The study population will include healthy women attending the menopause clinic. 72 patients will be recruited and will be randomly divided into two groups: an intervention group of 36 will commence the workshop during 2007 and a control group of 36 who will take part in dietitian consulting sessions only. During 2008 the control group will commence the workshop and will add to the study group.
