Have you noticed a few extra pounds around your waistline? This could be midlife expansion, a common complaint among women in their 40’s and 50’s. During these decades, MAINTAINING your weight may become more difficult and GAINING weight may become way too easy. The increase in weight generally begins during peri-menopause (the years prior to menopause).
The average woman gains around one pound per year during the peri-menopause period.
Insulin resistance can occur during the menopausal years. Your body can mistakenly convert every calorie you take in to fat. When women follow a low-fat, high carbohydrate diet over a period of time, processed and refined foods may make your body resistant to insulin produced in the blood stream. After the age of 40, the result is often weight gain.
