Menopause Weight Gain

As we age we start losing muscle at an accelerated rate. You may have noticed in your 40's that the belly fat was starting to set in, especially during peri-menopause. Well, you are not alone and you probably have tried to eat a healthy, balanced diet and kicked in some more cardio exercises. I turn to Mary Claire, MD who specializes in women's health. Her top three tips for reducing belly fat are;

1- Focus more on resistance training and less on the # on the scale. Lift heavy sh@!t.

2- Focus more on nutrition dense food rather than calorie restriction, especially fiber rich foods.

3- Less high intensity training and hard cardio and more walking. You can even consider walking with weights or a weighted vest/backpack. Walking after every meal does help lower the glucose spike
