Hot flashes won’t be why you’re feeling so hot!
Keeping the extra pounds off with the normal American lifestyle is a challenge for most people, as illustrated by obesity steadily becoming an epidemic. Unfortunately for all of us who are aging, the older a person gets, the more difficult it is to lose weight and keep it off. There are many different reasons why, and only your doctor can truly get to the bottom of the problem, but an easy answer is 90% of women experience weight gain between the ages of 35 and 55, obviously during peri-menopause and menopause. We all know that nutrition, exercise and lifestyle are important for maintaining healthy weight, but balancing your hormones after the imbalance that peri-menopause and menopause cause, is vital to helping ensure you don’t gain 30lbs or more on your hips thighs and buttocks. Your hormones are responsible for your metabolism and therefore any changes in weight; if your hormones are not balanced, you can gain weight, especially if you have too much cortisol from stress or too little progesterone, estrogen or testosterone.
