Are you going through peri-menopause or all the way to menopause and feeling like your body is betraying you? You’re not alone. Many women experience weight gain during this stage of life, and it can be a major source of frustration. But it’s important to remember that you have the power to make positive changes and regain control of your health.
During menopause, hormonal changes can lead to weight gain, particularly around the abdomen. This can be attributed to a decrease in estrogen levels, which affects how your body stores fat. Additionally, a slower metabolism and decreased muscle mass can make it more difficult to maintain a healthy weight.
But don’t let these challenges discourage you. There are steps you can take to beat menopause weight gain and feel your best. One of the key strategies is to focus on nutrition. Incorporating whole foods into your diet, such as fruits, vegetables, lean proteins, and whole grains, can provide essential nutrients and support overall health.
Something I do and encourage my clients to look into is supplementing with Juice Plus+. Juice Plus+ offers an east way to get more phytonutrients in your diet everyday and it bridges the gap between what you should eat and what you actually eat. It’s packed with the nutrients of 30 different fruits, vegetables, and berries, Juice Plus+ can help support your immune system, promote healthy skin, and provide antioxidant protection.
In addition to nutrition, regular exercise is crucial for managing menopause weight gain. Find activities that you enjoy, whether it’s walking, swimming, or dancing, and make them a regular part of your routine. Exercise not only helps burn calories but also boosts your mood and improves overall well-being.
