Menopausal Weight Loss Program - Metabolic Effect

This program helps you understand not only how the aging female metabolism is different, but also how it must be managed differently to optimize fat loss. This comes along with gains in weight and a dramatic shift in fat storage to the middle of the body. In response to these changes, most women turn to the standard diet advice of eat less, and exercise more. This is the exact wrong approach and often makes the situation worse. This is because the female physiology is exquisitely sensitive to stress during menopause, and it registers the typical approach to dieting as a stress. This program teaches you everything you need to know about the menopausal metabolism and how to regain the hourglass shape of your youth. The normal female menstrual cycle and how it impacts weight gain and weight loss. The unique hormonal state of menopause that causes fat gain around the belly and how to stop it.

How Women Can Keep the Weight Off After Menopause

But a  four-year study published in the Journal of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics says there are ways that women can keep the pounds off as they age. Add in the fact that when people lose weight, their brain’s reward system is revved up and increases their desire to eat and it’s a wonder anyone can lose weight and keep pounds at bay. In the study, the researchers followed 508 post-menopausal and overweight women for four years between 2002 and 2008. They examined their early and long-term weight loss in order to identify any eating behaviors that distinguished women who were successful in keeping their weight down and women who weren’t. In the short term, the researchers found that at six months the eating behaviors associated with weight loss included eating fewer desserts and fried foods, drinking less sugary beverages, eating more fish and eating less at restaurants, a trend that continued at the four year mark. “That means that eating less as restaurants and eating less fried foods were either not effective in the long term, or were unsustainable,” said Gibbs in the podcast. “Eating more fruits and vegetables did not predict weight change at six months, but was one of the most important predictors for long-term weight change. (MORE:  Study: The Best and Worst Food for Healthy Weight ) The authors say that slashing dessert and sugary drink consumption is consistently effective for short and long-term weight loss and more fruits and veggies and less meat and cheese are best for long-term pound-shedding. “If the goal is to reduce the burden of obesity, the focus must be on long-term strategies because changes in eating behaviors only associated with short-term weight loss are likely ineffective and not sustainable, they write. more...



Weight Loss After Menopause

Each month, Web MD the Magazine puts your questions about weight loss and fitness to top exercise and motivational experts. You have to be realistic - you're not going to lose weight as fast as you did in your 20s or 30s. But you can still do it. You can't spot reduce (target your tummy to lose inches in that area only), but you can do moves to strengthen your core, such as the plank. Get on your hands and toes (or knees and forearms, to modify) as if you're going to do a push-up. Then hold your body there, keeping your abs pulled in, for as long as you can. Many women think that if you're not running around and sweating , you're not exercising , but lifting weights makes your body work harder even at rest. (And if you don't use it, you lose it - adults who don't do any form of strength training lose 5 to 7 pounds of muscle every decade.) Thank you for submitting your response. We're testing this new feature and we'd like your feedback. more...



Keys to Weight Loss After Menopause

Conventional wisdom says weight gain is inevitable with menopause and that losing weight is difficult. Cutting way back on sugary desserts and drinks topped the list, followed by limiting meats and cheeses and eating more fruits and vegetables . “People who were able to decrease their consumption of desserts and sugar-sweetened beverages tended to have more success losing weight and keeping it off,” says researcher Bethany Barone Gibbs, Ph D, of the University of Pittsburgh. The study included about 500 overweight and obese postmenopausal women with waist sizes greater than 31.5 inches. Half the women followed a weight loss plan that included regular meetings with nutritionists, exercise specialists, and psychologists. Behaviors associated with weight loss at six months in the combined groups included eating: Less sugar (desserts and sugar-sweetened beverages) Also eating fewer desserts and drinking fewer sugar-sweetened beverages. Eating more fruits and vegetables and fewer meats and cheeses. more...



Losing After Menopause - Weight Watchers

*People following the Weight Watchers plan can expect to lose 1-2 pounds per week. Pam shares unique insights and lessons learned after losing both her baby weight and the weight that crept on after menopause with the Weight Watchers plan. The first time I joined Weight Watchers meetings and started following the POINTS® Weight-Loss System I needed to lose the weight I put on by cleaning the leftovers off my toddler’s plate after every meal. Gratefully, I experienced steady and predictable weight loss. I was thrilled with my newfound control and was able to keep the weight off until another milestone threatened my physique, my fortieth birthday. I refused to beat myself up and went straight back to the plan that had helped me lose weight the first time. It was nearly 10 years since my first weight-loss experience, and I found myself happy to return to the world of POINTS values. I was dismayed to find that steady and predictable weight loss was a thing of my past. It seemed that only serious tracking and the incorporation of long walks at least five times a week would earn me small doses of weight loss intermittently. My doctor confirmed that I was post-menopausal and that my weight-loss goals could not be expressed in numbers at this time. I learned the Core Plan® and tried to make healthier choices in my diet. I am so proud to have given myself this gift and I hope you give yourself the chance to experience the pride and joy that comes with attaining your goals. Use your dining room table for more than just mail and set the table with pretty plates and glasses. Boil some eggs and put them at eye level when you open the fridge. I take a multivitamin with minerals and an extra dose of the B vitamins — they keep my energy level high. more...

Long - Term Weight Loss Extremely Hard For Post

Long-Term Weight Loss Extremely Hard For Post-Menopausal Women. The authors added that several factors work against postmenopausal women when they try to lose weight over the long term. For postmenopausal women, the authors say, it is much harder. The researchers found that behaviors which are linked to weight loss initially during a diet and exercise drive, just simply do not work after a while for post-menopausal females. Lead researcher Bethany Barone Gibbs, Ph D, explained that several factors make weight loss much harder for post-menopausal women: Researchers studying the brain are now finding that you have enhanced rewards and increased motivation to eat when you've lost weight." The team found that in the combined populations of the two groups, eating habits linked strongly to weight loss at six months included eating less fried foods, fewer desserts, more fish, going out to eat less often, and fewer sugar-sweetened drinks. At 48 months all the participants were eating out less, even the ones who lost no weight. However, consuming more fruits and vegetables and less meat and cheese are additional contributors to successful long-term body weight control, the authors wrote. Breast cancer risk is even greater for postmenopausal women if they gain weight . more...



My Most Excellent Menopause Weight Loss Adventure

This extra weight refused to budge through the most well crafted, healthy exercise and diet regimens. Then, I ran across a “new” diet called the HCG diet, which is actually old, researched and developed in Italy by a British physician in the 1950’s. He asked himself why some people don’t gain weight no matter what they eat and others gain while eating the same diet, exercising, etc. He postulated that the metabolism controller in the brain would get confused and need to be reset. Tiny doses do the same for those of us with abnormally stored, unavailable fat, usually located in the thighs, abdomen, buttocks, and back of the upper arms. Now you actually have to “survive” on about 2500 calories a day, not the mere 500 you consume, because the fat is liberated from those storage depots, meaning that you are not hungry or uncomfortable at all. He told me that he and his wife had just completed it and lost 16 and 18 pounds respectively, all around the middle. At first, it seemed overwhelming the amount of planning and care and discipline I’d have to muster. So I studied the books, located the necessary foods, and had my lab work done. The first 2 days are fat- loading days to build up structural fat (which is different than the stored fat that will be liberated). I’m over the fat loading already, but they say it’s important. I’m so glad this day is over and I can start the VLCD (very low calorie diet) tomorrow. Lost four pounds on the cleanse, put two back on the fat loading days. more...



PCOS in Aging Women : Beyond Hormones and Hot Flashes

But what effect does aging and declining estrogen have on reproductive hormones for women with PCOS? Several studies have shown that as women with PCOS age, their risk of CVD and type 2 diabetes rises, stressing the need for early detection and aggressive treatment of the syndrome. Older women with PCOS may find it particularly more difficult to manage insulin levels and lose weight than younger women with the syndrome, as insulin levels have been shown to worsen with age. This supports the need for treatment involving dietary and lifestyle modifications and insulin sensitizers in older women with PCOS who have metabolic complications.

POST MENOPAUSE SUCCESS STORY!! - The Fast Diet

I have always been very active and reasonably slim. I gave that up about 10 years ago and now work as a freelance musician and also teach music from home. Despite not really eating any more, I never have had a huge appetite, I was gaining inches around my middle and hips. This does not sound huge I am sure to many of you, but you need to note my feet are only a size 3 and I am very small boned. And then also saw how well a friend was losing weight on this diet, bought the book and was most interested in reading about how the diet seems to ” re-boot” your fat cells. I have been on this diet since mid January and have found it so easy to do. I have actually only lost half a stone which is fine, I am now 8stone 10 pounds and do not bother weighing myself any more but it is the inch loss which has been most encourageing and the boost in my energy levels. I have lost 4 inches off my waist, 3 inches around my bottom, 2 inches off the top of each thigh and sadly one inch around bust! My skin is glowing and I will stay on this diet for life now. If you are wobbling because you are not losing much weight, then please follow my example and measure yourself. I measure myself once a month and write it down just to remember how many inches I have lost. I do think you are really lucky to have lost it off exactly the places you would choose to. more...

Huffington Post : How to Ward Off Menopausal Weight Gain

And while one pound seems relatively harmless, that extra poundage is the result of both fat gain and muscle loss, which can put your waistline - and your health - at risk. Regardless of what number you see on the scale, women's weight through menopause and perimenopause is largely determined by five factors: hormones, diet, exercise, stress and genetics. Don't let your hormones get the best of you. But if you use the Weight Watchers app, all the adding is done for you. Exercising during and after menopause can help maintain the muscle and bone mass that we tend to lose rapidly after menopause , according to the American Council on Exercise .

High stress is a predictor of weight gain and can break your will to stick with a diet, according to research from King's College London. Grab your lover or friend and take a walk, ride your bike or go to the gym. No, not the "skinny jeans" you bought last September and can no longer squeeze your bod into, but your actual genetics. However, a sedentary lifestyle (aka watching TV for four hours a day) increases the influence of your genes on weight gain by 50 percent, according to the study. Remember: It's totally normal to suddenly find that you are a member of the sisterhood of the shrinking pants, especially if you're going through perimenopause and menopause. more...

Menopause and Weight Loss - Trim Down Club

We think of estrogen as the hormone responsible for the fat that most women store in our breasts, hips and thighs, giving us our classic shape. Both the ovaries and body fat produce estrogen. This makes you hungry because your body isn’t getting the energy it needs. When you eliminate the refined carbs and hidden sugar, you stabilize your blood sugar levels in a healthy range. This means your body does not have to store your food as fat, but can use it to fuel you and your brain. Your body will produce less cortisol because you have removed the stress caused by hunger. This means the food you eat fuels your body and brain—not your fat—also reducing your hunger levels. And weight-lifting is great, as long as you do it the right way. It helps maintain your muscles and bones because the estrogen (and progestin, if you have an intact uterus) is an anabolic steroid. You may have more energy and be less hungry because your body can get the estrogen it needs to protect your muscle and bone from the HT, rather than by converting food into fat. You will be more likely to have the healthier female-pattern fat deposition in your hips and thighs, rather than unhealthy male pattern in the abdomen, if you use HT. more...



Weight Loss After Menopause : A Few Tricks Left

Over the weekend, I unpacked my wedding dress, which had been stored in the back of my mother’s closet and impenetrably sealed for 10 years. (OK, I was pregnant then — but only three months, and hadn’t gained much weight.) But I’m fighting back, and so far, winning. However, the study, published in the Journal of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, finds there are a few tricks lefts — but no magic. These results suggest that decreased consumption of desserts and sugar-sweetened beverages consistently associate with short-and long-term weight loss or maintenance, but increased fruits and vegetables in controls, as well as decreased meats and cheeses, in an intervention are additional factors that can help for long-term, but not necessarily short-term, weight loss or control. For me, the most successful approach is just to be more vigilant about food and physical activity. It may not be as fun or carefree as the past, but all of these efforts combined, and running around with my kids, seems to work for me. And I’ve got the dress to prove it. more...

Menopause Weight Gain and Loss - Causes and Solutions

Fat weight gain around the midsection is something that normally occurs in many women around the time of menopause. In simplest terms, your new midsection fat weight gain is caused by your body’s response to your menopause, not by how much you eat or exercise. Therefore, the only way to counter this type of fat weight gain is to properly treat your menopause. To put this in perspective for you, let’s start by understanding the physiology of why menopause triggers weight gain around the middle. The Physiology of Fat: As explained in other articles in this series, menopause is the permanent loss of your sex hormone system. It is the time in your life when your body is no longer able to produce adequate levels of the sex hormones estradiol (the estrogen made in your ovaries) and progesterone. For more information about the myriad ways in which the loss of your sex hormones affect your health, read: Blame it on Menopause . Because of its importance in performing these other critical functions, when you lose the ability to produce sufficient estradiol and progesterone, your body looks for other ways to make them – especially estradiol. At any given moment the levels of progesterone in your body are at least 1,000 times that of the levels of estradiol. So, what is the connection between fat cells and estradiol production? Well, as I have explained in previous articles, all of the systems and sub-systems of your body are interrelated and interdependent. So, if you understand the relationship between midsection fat weight gain and your sex hormone levels, then you also understand that getting rid of your newly acquired midsection fat is not simply a function of diet and exercise. The fat weight gain is going to happen regardless of how little you eat and how much you exercise. In the case of menopause, you must also restore your sex hormones. This is the same fat weight gain that numerous studies have shown to increase a woman’s risk for breast cancer, heart attacks, type 2 diabetes etc. more...

Is Long - Term Weight Loss Possible after Menopause

A new study finds that in post-menopausal women, some behaviors that are related to weight loss in the short term are not effective or sustainable for the long term. Researchers studying the brain are now finding that you have enhanced rewards and increased motivation to eat when you’ve lost weight.” Combined with the natural energy expenditure decline in women following menopause, it is extremely difficult for older women to lose weight and maintain weight loss. The investigators sought to determine if changes in eating behaviors and selected foods were associated with weight loss at six and 48 months in a group of overweight post-menopausal women. Investigators found that the eating behaviors associated with weight loss at six months were eating fewer desserts and fried foods, drinking fewer sugar-sweetened beverages, eating more fish, and eating at restaurants less. After four years, they found that eating fewer deserts and drinking fewer sugar-sweetened beverages continued to be associated with weight loss or maintenance. Eating fewer desserts and drinking fewer sugar-sweetened beverages were also related to long-term weight loss. However, eating more fruits and vegetables and less meat and cheese emerged as additional important predictors for long-term weight loss. Barone Gibbs speculates that this may have been related to economic factors and not relevant to the study. Barone Gibbs explains that strategies such as eating fewer fried foods may not be sustainable for the long term. The results suggest that decreased consumption of desserts and sugar-sweetened beverages consistently associate with short- and long-term weight loss or maintenance, but increased fruits and vegetables and decreased meat and cheeses are additional factors that may improve long-term weight loss or control. “If the goal is to reduce the burden of obesity, the focus must be on long-term strategies because changes in eating behaviors only associated with short-term weight loss are likely to be ineffective and unsustainable,” concludes Dr. more...

Prevent Menopause Weight Gain - Shape Magazine

It is for many of my clients over the age of 35, who worry about the impact of hormonal changes on their shapes and weights. The truth is, menopause, and the preceding perimenopause, can wreak some havoc with your metabolism. However, I’ve seen many women successfully lose weight during and after this life transition, and now new research published in the Journal of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics sheds a little more light on which strategies work. After six months, they found that four specific behaviors led to weight loss: eating fewer desserts and fried foods, drinking fewer sugary beverages, eating more fish, and dining at restaurants less often. After four years, eating fewer desserts and sugary drinks continued to be associated with weight loss or maintenance. And in the long-term, munching on more produce and eating less meat and cheese were also found to be tied to weight loss success. The great news about this research is that the same tried and true techniques we know to be effective earlier in life worked to support weight loss after menopause. And this isn’t the first study to show that midlife weight loss is achievable. The silver lining here is that your habits do make a difference, so a lot of the control is in your hands, and that’s empowering. The key is to start now to stave off weight gain as you age and make weight maintenance later in life less daunting. Check out my previous post about the link as well as dos and don’ts for veggie-based meals. Or have you managed your weight through this phase of life? more...

While you have to take responsibility for your own behavior for successful weight loss, it helps to have support — of the right kind. If you prefer to keep your weight-loss plans private, be accountable to yourself by having regular weigh-ins and recording your diet and exercise progress in a journal. It isn't essential that you have an outcome goal, but you should set process goals because changing your your habits is a key to weight loss. more...



73 Pounds Lost : Peg Relieves Menopause Symptoms By Jogging

Spring of 2009, one day and one pound at a time. I purchased a pedometer and started moving, aiming for 10,000 steps a day. I was hungry and overweight. I jog in place and do exercise routine with weights for an hour. I have a protein drink and a bowl of cereal first thing in the morning. For lunch, I have salad and chicken, or a salad with peanut butter and crackers. For dinner, I eat chicken and a huge plate of vegetables. I like to make protein drinks with a scoop of vanilla protein, banana, water, ice cubes, and vanilla flavoring. I also like peanut butter on a banana and frozen grapes. The most important thing is to take it one day, one step, and one pound at a time. more...



Successful Weight Loss Plan for Menopausal Women

A diet rich in plant-based foods like whole grains, fruits and vegetables, along with regular exercise, can help reduce weight and body fat. An emphasis on plant products will supply healthy vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and fiber while keeping calories down to promote weight loss. A woman over 50 who is not physically active should consume only about 1,600 calories each day. A woman over 50 who is not physically active should consume only about 1,600 calories each day, according to the U. Menopausal women who are moderately active require only slightly more calories, about 1,800 per day, to maintain a healthy weight. The USDA Food Guide recommendation for approximately a 1,600 calorie intake is to eat the following foods daily: 1 1/2 cups fruit; 2 cups of vegetables; 5 ounces of whole grains; 5 ounces of meat, fish or beans; and 3 cups of fat-free milk. While clinical trials on calcium supplements have not shown an association with weight loss, studies regarding increased calcium intake through consuming more dairy products have demonstrated that calcium promotes lower body weight. Add low-fat or no-fat dairy to your diet by using powdered nonfat milk in liquid skim milk to create a cream-like base for soups and sauces, eating nonfat yogurt with fruit as a snack, and eating leafy green vegetables that are high in calcium. more...

Fasting, Weight Loss and Menopause? - The Fast Diet

Then I was thrilled to find out about this 5:2 regime, and I decided to follow it, as a last resort, in the hopes that it will deliver the change I have been hoping for. I understand that you are depressed that you are not having the results you hoped for, I have been on that plateau and it’s soul destroying but I persevered and am 43lbs lighter than I was at this time last year. It’s not just “the way it is” but we have to accept that the older you are the longer it can take to get the result we want. My husband and children are really pleased not only in the loss of weight but the health benefits. If you do the 5:2 way of life then this means that on non-fasting days you are allowed to eat what you want but not how much you want! One of the reasons why I am doing this way of life is for health benefits and not so much for beauty reasons. At the end of the day the 5:2 way of life is, at least for me, not so much about what others think of me and my looks, but for my own health and my own benefit. What Stef and i are saying that it isn’t about WHAT you are eating on those days, it’s about the AMOUNT. It’s about how you want to feel and what you need NOW, not what happened in the past. I fully understand that this is not easy for you but I strongly believe that in the long run it is necessary for your health that you concentrate on the future and not the past. As I have said before you are doing this for yourself and not for anybody else. I wish you the very best and I really hope that you can stick around. more...



Weight Loss and Menopause

Weight Loss and Menopause. But how much do you know about weight management during the mid-life years? Do you know the truth about weight management during menopause, or have you been tricked by old wives tales? The loss of estrogen associated with menopause causes weight gain. Boggs, education director for the North American Menopause Society, research has shown that estrogen loss is unrelated to weight gain. On the other hand, weight gain is a natural part of aging—the average weight gained during midlife is about 10 to 15 pounds. I can maintain my goal weight in mid-life by eating the same and exercising as much as I did in my 30s and 40s. In order to maintain a healthy weight after menopause, you must step up your physical activity, especially weight-bearing exercise, to build muscle, Gluck says. After menopause, women are likely to gain more weight on their belly than on their hips and thighs. Weight gain during menopause is a side effect of hormone replacement therapy (HRT). Most research has revealed that HRT is not associated with weight gain and BMI since the majority of weight gain is due to aging. "If you take hormones and exercise more and maintain a healthy diet, then you'll have an easier time maintaining your weight or losing weight," says Gluck. more...
