How can you combat weight gain during menopause?

How can you combat weight gain during menopause?

Weight gain in women over 50y is a common complaint at the doctor’s office. The best ways to help prevent unwanted weight gain is to do the following: 

  1. Exercise regularly and often-The best form of exercise is aerobic activity combined with strength training.  The more muscle you build up the better your body burns calories. If you are doing moderate aerobic activity such as brisk walking, 150 minutes a week is optimal.  For more strenuous aerobic activity such as jogging, 75 minutes a week is recommended.
  2. Eat 200-300 calories less a day to maintain your current weight.  Be mindful of eating a colorful, healthy and well-balanced diet including fresh fruits, vegetables, whole grains and fish.  If you have to cut calories chose those with less nutritional value, such as fats and alcohol.  Eating a healthy diet will also have other health benefits such as reducing the risk of heart disease, stroke, diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol and improve cognitive function.
  3. Create an over 50yr support team-I am sure your close friends are going through the same frustrating challenges regarding unwanted weight gain.  Use your friends and family as a support team to make permanent healthy lifestyle and dietary choices that will promote healthy aging and defeat the battle of the budge.
