Final call! Join the free Fatigued to Fabulous Challenge starting on September 18th!

Weight gain is part of the experience for a lot of perimenopause women, as well as the struggle to lose weight. I know that the question on everyone’s lips is “how do I lose this weight when the old ways aren’t working any more," so today I'll talk about the science of this phenomenon. The first thing to know is that this is normal, and I'll talk you through the various reasons why this is happening and what to do about it. 

What You'll Learn:

- Why we are more prone to stress hormones in the perimenopause

- How insulin resistance and fluctuating blood sugar affect our weight

- Why our metabolism tends to get slower

- Why the quality of our sleep diminishes

- What gut dysbiosis is

- How dieting makes all the things above even worse

- What changes to our nutrition and lifestyle we can introduce instead of a diet

- Why working on body acceptance is key in this phase of our life

I hope that this will give you plenty of reasons to not diet and instead to look at other options that you have available to being happy, healthy and confident in the perimenopause.
