Health, Diet and Nutrition

The first place to start is not necessarily in the gym, as many women mistakenly believe is the only way to shed those extra pounds that appeared as if from nowhere. It is at the dinner plate!

The changes in hormonal balance in the body can play a part in the way in which food is processed which can result in more fat being stored than before the menopause. Discovering just where these changes are occurring and why can be the first positive steps to reversing the process and getting the weight and size back under control.

It is definitely worth taking a long hard look at what you are consuming day to day and finding out where you can make the necessary changes to turn the tide in the other direction.
