YOU ALREADY KNOW...
As you get older, you might notice that maintaining your usual weight becomes more difficult. In fact, many women gain weight around the menopause transition. Youthfulness is almost synonymous with the ability to stay active and energized. Aging, on the other hand, is unfortunately often associated with the effects of fatigue, ill health, and weight gain.
YOU MAY NOT KNOW...
For many menopausal women, weight gain is one of their major health concerns. Most of us know from personal experience what numerous studies have now demonstrated: menopausal transition is associated with unfavorable changes in body composition and abdominal fat deposition.
YOU NEED TO KNOW...
While aging is inevitable, menopause weight gain is not. You can reverse the course by paying attention to healthy-eating habits and leading an active lifestyle. Our provider team at Nore Women’s Health is equipped to help with getting your weight back on track.
WHY LOSE WEIGHT? Achieving a healthy weight reduces your risk of chronic disease, including heart disease, some cancers and type 2 diabetes. A healthy weight also makes menopause symptoms potentially more bearable and improves bladder health, particularly incontinence. Being at a healthy weight also improves your energy levels and boosts your self confidence. Weight loss management is not just about fitting into society’s expectations for thinness. It’s essential to your health, wellness, and robust aging.
I’M NOT OVERWEIGHT, BUT DON’T WANT TO GAIN WEIGHT. A woman’s body and health is ever changing, and this includes your metabolism and weight. Nore Women’s Health can educate you about these changes and help you navigate hormone changes that can have a very real effect on the shape and size of your physique. Your nutrition needs change during menopause, too. Discussing this with our providers will help you understand these changes so you can maintain energy and enjoy optimal health even as your body transitions.
