If you are a post-menopausal woman, you probably battle a bit with bulging tummy and extra body pounds.
As you begin to enter menopause, it is quite difficult for you to achieve weight loss.
Even though it is difficult, it is not impossible to achieve weight loss after menopause. Here are a few effective ways to achieve your weight loss goal:
Increase your physical activity
You don’t need to practice a strenuous exercise routine to become physically active. Just don’t neglect to do your daily duties like cleaning your room or managing household chores.
Explore different ways to increase physical activity like gardening or walking for a long time in your regular routine.
Cut down calories
Especially, when you reach post-menopausal stage, it is very important for you to pay attention to the foods you include in your diet.
If you think your calorie intake per day is high, try to reduce it gradually. Remember not to cut back drastically, as this can help your body to conserve more energy and prevent weight loss.
Reduce dietary fat
The more you reduce fat intake, the more will be the chance to prevent weight gain and obesity. You have to limit fat at least up to 20% to 35% of your daily calories.
Don’t starve yourself
If you think starving or not having food can prevent weight gain after menopause, don’t be misled. Anything below 1200 to 1400 calories slows down your body metabolism and makes your weight loss process much difficult for you.
So, don’t try to starve yourself, rather eat healthy food and keep your system and body weight in balance.
