Designed for When “Eat Less, Exercise More” Doesn’t Cut It

Dr. Mary Claire Haver is a wife, mom, board-certified OBGYN, MSCP, certified culinary medicine specialist and author who has devoted her adult life to women’s health. Over the years, as her patient population aged, Dr. Haver was overwhelmed with the number of complaints and concerns her patients had about weight gain while going through menopause. For years, she told her patients to eat less and exercise more. When Dr. Haver started to experience perimenopausal symptoms, and the “eat less, workout more” advice wasn’t working, she decided to find a solution that worked.

Determined to make a difference, she embarked on extensive research and created The Galveston Diet nutrition program. This innovative approach is tailored to address the specific challenges women encounter during middle age, offering a refreshing departure from outdated mantras. Dr. Haver’s journey underscores a commitment to empowering women through effective, personalized solutions for menopausal wellness.

Here are some tips to help combat it.
