From my article featured in Capital Region Living Magazine:
Weight loss and menopause:
The rules are not the same!
Here we are in the middle of summer, the most body-baring time of year. And for many women who are 45 and above, it is bitter sweet. We want to enjoy the great weather wear easy, comfortable, summer outfits, yet our bodies seem to be defying everything we do to lose weight and get toned. We are following all the recommendations for weight loss and it seems as if weight gain is the only result!
If this is you, then know that you are NOT crazy! What you need to do in order to lose weight in peri-menopause and menopause is very different than what is recommended for younger women (and men). The good news is you CAN lose, especially belly fat, once you know what to do for this distinct time of your life cycle.
