Menopause gets blamed for a slower metabolism and mid-life weight gain.
But, a 2021 study (Herman Pontzer et al. Science) showed that metabolism holds steady until the age of 60.
Yes, menopause can cause challenges, but yo-yo dieting can cause metabolic slow down more than menopause.
When you overly restrict calories so that you’re starving, you end up binging – and usually on less supportive foods.

Instead of slashing calories, keep them as high as possible to create a small calorie deficit.
Weight loss will be slower, but more manageable and sustainable.
