Built to help women have a 360° approach to health through perimenopause to post-menopause.
Your weight seems to be going up despite not much really changing, you´re still exercising and eating ‘healthy’, but the weight won´t budge and you feel like you don´t recognise yourself anymore!
You´ve tried keto, intermittent fasting, and weight watchers, but it just doesn´t have the effect it used to and you wished it felt easier…
Not to mention…
There´s so much conflicting information out there that you´re completely confused as to what´s happening to your perimenopausal or menopausal body and what to do about it!
Well, here´s a list of myths about menopause that aren´t the reason things feel harder:
Here are 3 evidence-based reasons why it feels more difficult now…
Low energy and symptoms
As oestrogen declines, so does your energy levels, and consequently, your motivation, which has an impact on your consistency when it comes to movement and eating combine that with the myriad of symptoms you might be experiencing, like anxiety, joint aches, and pains, low mood, etc, and it´s no wonder things don´t feel easy as they did in your 30s!
When we lose oestrogen we see a shift in the places our body stores fat, you get a distribution from your gluts, and thighs to your midsection… Ever heard of meno-belly? That´s what´s going on. This makes it more difficult to see progress and even show compassion whilst dieting.
You might be hungrier in menopause
Oestrogen plays a huge role in appetite regulation, so as it declines, certain hunger hormones increase. If you´re experiencing sleep disturbances, this will also cause an increase in hunger hormones, making food choices more difficult!
As an evidence-based nutritionist and registered therapist, I´m all about clearing out the misinformation so you can focus on the things that will help move you forward and create lasting changes to your health.
It´s time to do away with the fads, quick fixes, and myths that are keeping you stuck!
