Extra Weight From Menopause
A woman’s life is very hectic. She has to go through various physical and mental stages which men do not even need to think about. The menstrual cycle which a female endures, while sometimes painful is, after all, a natural part of being a woman and a symbol of fertility. After many sometimes difficult stages of life, a woman has to face yet another difficult phase - the phase of menopause. This is basically the hard way of being rid of the menstrual process. But with this, she faces the loss of her ability to reproduce, an experience unique to being female. It can sometimes feel like losing your reason for being a woman.
Besides the many other physiological and mental changes in a female body, there comes a physical change as well. Though it is not always due to menopause it might be one of the reasons why, having just hit your 40’s, you find you are gaining weight all of a sudden. There is obviously a connection between your body fats and menopause. Actually, some hormones are responsible for the production of fats. Due to imbalance of the amount of these hormones during menopause, the body starts converting calories into fats which ultimately get deposited around your belly and shoulders. Eventually you suffer from an increase in weight.
The most common way of losing your weight is by using hormone replacement therapy. But some people consider this dangerous due to side effects. A recommended safer way of treating weight gain as a result of menopause is through diet. Yes! You can achieve your goal by having a balanced healthy diet. Intake of fatty foods should be avoided. Instead choose to have large amounts of lean proteins as part of your daily diet. Carbohydrate rich foods are also recommended for the women going through menopause. But again, the bad carbs and fats should be excluded from your diet.
Exercising is considered the most effective way for staying fit and for losing weight. You need to be physically active during menopause. This will not only burn your fats but will keep you relaxed and you will be better equipped to fight anxiety and stress. Therefore, participating in yoga, swimming, squats, leg crunches, leg lifts, Sit-ups, pelvic tilts and other light exercises is recommended by the specialists.
