I suggest a low carb diet. Keep in mind that a typical American diet is very high in carbs. Even moderating your carb intake can help. And don't avoid fat. Your body needs fat.

The Dukan diet works...there is a section on menopause. The first two phases where you lose the weight are essentially low carb high protein but not high fat like Atkins. I always had trouble losing on atkins but Dukan worked.
