Many women experience weight gain as a side effect to menopause. Your body is trying to deal with a reduction in estrogen, and as a result, you are likely to see a few extra pounds added to your frame.
The worst part of this news is that women are not always using best practices when they attempt to lose this added weight during postmenopause. The transition of menopause leaves a woman’s body susceptible to many risks including osteoporosis and heart disease.
Fortunately, by making small changes to your diet and exercise routine, you can lose the weight in a way that is truly healthy for a postmenopausal woman.
