Tell a menopausal woman that her metabolism hasn’t changed.
Fact is, the 2021 Herman Pontzer study showed that metabolism doesn’t change until age 60.
Pontzer, Herman, et al. “Daily energy expenditure through the human life course.” Science 373.6556 (2021): 808-812.
But, it’s undeniable that many women experience weight gain & increased belly fat.
With decreased estrogen fat distribution tends to land at the waistline. So woman may not be gaining more fat, but it accumulates more noticeably around the belly, as well, OTHER lifestyle factors contribute to weight gain.
The good news is that many of these factors can be controlled so that midlife weight gain doesn’t necessarily have to be your fate.
Because metabolism doesn’t actually change until your 60’s, you CAN do something about it.
For example, many of my clients in their 50’s, like Karen, make small tweaks to their nutrition to drop excess weight.
Don’t just accept weight gain as a ‘natural’ cause of aging.
If you’d like to get on top of your increasing waist, let me help.
