Once in her life every woman faces the challenges caused by menopause. One of them is weight gain which triggers the question how to stop it. Sometimes it seems that it happens over night. We are looking at the most recent picture and what we see is a complete stranger on the photo.
The eyes and the corners of the lips have been just dropped. That’s o.k. but what happened to the body?! Why we are gaining weight on areas which we’ve never had any problems with?
It’s called menopause, the process which releases female’s body from all those functions that serve giving birth to a new baby. Mother Nature stops this ability usually amongst women after 40.
What Are The Symptoms of Menopause?
It makes me laugh when I see some people numbering these symptoms. I believe that you don’t really want to know how many they are. The only things that matter are how to recognize the main premenopausal signs, how to slow the process down and how to prevent weight gain.
Common signals for the coming ‘event’ are change of sleeping pattern, night sweating, dry skin, dry hair, mood swings, inability to focus on simple tasks, headaches, depression, heavy bleeding during menstruation, skipping periods or light bleeding and the BIG ONE…easily stored fat deposits in the midsection and difficulties to get rid of it.
Menopause is shifting the estrogen away which is followed by entire rearrangements within our system including the places where we store unwanted fat.
How Menopause Causes Weight Gain?Estrogen: Due to early menopause, hysterectomy or naturally occurring menopause our ovaries don’t produce enough estrogen. To compensate the lack of this hormone the body is turning to its fat storages that can release it. The problem is that we need more fat to produce more estrogen. That’s why instead of converting this fat into energy fuel our body system is creating bigger amount of fat deposits.
Testosteron: Testosteron is the male hormone which is designed to utilize the calories for the creation of muscle tissue. All we know that the more muscle we have the more calories we burn but over the time we produce less amount of this hormone which inhibits metabolism. Now we eat the same amount of calories as before without burning them on time. The result is more pounds put on the belly.
These are just two of many other hormones such as Androgenic hormone and progesterone which are directly linked to our physical and mental health. In other words they change the whole game body wise: slow metabolism, less lean muscles, depression and the elevated ability to store fat.
Tips on How to Control Weight Gain During Menopause
When menopause hits you up you should know that the immune system goes down. Along with the growing abdomen there is bigger risk to develop life threatening health problems such as cancer, cardiovascular diseases, diabetes, and osteoporosis and thyroid issues.
What Supplement Can Help You Lose Weight During Menopause?
There is no doubt for me that the most powerful supplement for losing weight during menopause is Phen375. It helps you getting over common concerns related to menopause such as hormonal imbalance, loss of bone density, lack of sleep, lower sex drive, stubborn areas to lose weight, food craving, low energy, slow metabolism and decrease of muscle tissue.
