Stop Menopause Weight Gain



Many women have a difficult time maintaining their weight as they get older. The hormonal changes that occur during menopause may make this even more difficult. In addition, you might notice you tend to gain and store weight in your abdomen instead of hips thighs and other parts of your body which can increase your risk for diabetes, heart disease and certain cancers.1 Although, going through menopause can make weight maintenance or weight loss difficult, many times the gain can be attributed to genetics, aging and other lifestyle factors.2 With the right diet, exercise routine and lifestyle you may be able to lose some weight or maintain your weight throughout menopause.
