How to Fight Menopause Weight Gain and Other Symptoms

November 29, 2013

BEVERLY HILLS, Calif., Nov. 29, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — One of the most bothersome symptoms of menopause for many women is menopause weight gain. As hormone levels begin to change, many women begin to experience an increase in abdominal fat. Dr. Shoreh Ershadi explains how women can fight menopausal weight gain and other common symptoms.

As hormones fluctuate and decrease during menopause, women can experience a wide range of symptoms. Menopause itchy skin, menopause hot flashes, menopause foggy memory and weight gain are some of the most common. As weight increases, women can become more vulnerable to weight-related health problems, such as cardiovascular disease and Type 2 diabetes. Controlling or stopping the weight gain can reduce the risk and help women feel more confident during this time of change.

Focusing on a healthier lifestyle is one of the best ways to manage menopausal weight gain. As women age, their metabolism naturally slows. Their muscle mass can decrease, and they may notice decreased energy levels. Maintaining a moderate exercise regimen most days of the week and strength training twice a week can help preserve muscle mass and increase the calorie burn.

A healthy diet is also important during this time. Women who are experiencing hormonal imbalances can benefit from a balanced diet that fulfills their nutritional requirements and provides them with the energy they need throughout their day. Lean protein can help build muscle tissue while the vitamins in fruits and vegetables can promote healthy function. Whole grains contain essential fiber, and low-fat dairy products are great sources of the calcium that is critical to healthy bone mass. It is also important that women get enough rest during this time. Rest allows the body to recover from the stresses of the day and can ensure women have adequate energy to perform their daily routine.

Dr. Ershadi and the AntiAging Institute of California have designed DON’T PAUSE to help conquer menopausal weight gain. DON’T PAUSE is an all-natural dietary supplement that can help maintain hormone balance, boost energy levels and preserve a healthier weight. The AntiAging Institute of California offers a wide selection of products that combat common age-related health issues and promote a healthier lifestyle through natural ingredients.
