Why You Can’t Lose Weight During Menopause and What To Do Instead


You’ve tried every diet under the sun yet menopause weight gain just won’t budge. In fact, you might even be gaining weight eating LESS and exercising MORE than you used to pre-menopause! It’s enormously frustrating but what if it’s not your fault? Hormonal changes have a huge impact on metabolism and fat storage that mainstream diets don’t address. Read on to discover why you can’t lose menopause weight gain and a better solution.


Metabolism Slowdown in Menopause is REAL

Research shows that declining estrogen during menopause directly causes your metabolism to slow down substantially. What worked for weight loss in your 20s-40s is nearly impossible now. Trying to just exercise more and eat less inevitably fails.


Hormone Imbalance Leads to Fat Storage

In perimenopause and menopause, your hunger and stress hormones become imbalanced. Key hormones like cortisol, ghrelin and leptin now send signals to store more fat cells, especially in the abdominal area as belly fat. This happens even when eating in a calorie deficit!


A Custom Plan Works WITH Your Changing Hormones

Mainstream dieting advice simply doesn’t take your unique hormonal changes into account. Instead of striving for quick weight loss through extreme measures, we focus first on hormone balancing. This kickstarts and accelerates fat burning so you steadily lose weight in a sustainable way.
