Menopause Weight Gain & Belly Fat - How to keep the pounds off

Seeing that tummy bulge during your menopause years? You’re not alone! There are ways to end the meno-pot horror. So read on to find out how. 

Weight gain can mean a few things. Genetics, lifestyle, diet, stress, and well you’ve guessed it - hormones. As women approach menopause, estrogen level decreases which can lead to more fat gained and muscle loss. Reasons being:

  • Menopause shifts fat storage to the stomach, resulting in the dreaded belly fat AKA the ‘meno-pot’

  • Hormonal changes during menopause is linked to slower metabolism and may spark hunger, leading to higher caloric intake

  • Menopause can result in higher levels of insulin in your blood, causing the body to store more energy from your food intake than normal

But know this, these changes are completely normal and there are certainly ways to manage the weight gain caused by menopause (as impossible as it seems).

#1 Get Moving 

Among all types of exercises, strength training like pilates or yoga, and aerobic exercise have been proven to be the best for menopausal women. These exercises not only help you build muscles and shed the excess abdominal fats, they also maintain bone density and prevent osteoporosis (a common risk for menopausal women). 

If those aren’t your type of workouts, you can also try activities like jogging or cardio, which gets the heart pumping and enables the body to burn calories more efficiently. Not only that, you get better sleep, happier mood, and reduced stress - definitely a win-win if you ask us.

#2 Be Mindful of What You Eat

One study estimated that you’ll need to take in about 200 fewer calories a day during your 50s than you did during your 30s and 40s due to the slower metabolism. So keep a lookout on those sneaky sweet habits, cut down on caffeine or alcohol, and replace them with well-balanced meals instead (Check out these recipes).  

You may also check your Body Mass Index (BMI) here to calculate the daily calories intake, which is a good measure to prevent gaining weight.

#3 Incorporate Fat-blasting Supplements

Say hello to CelloFIT™, the natural yet intelligent body reshaper that focuses on boosting your metabolism and trimming difficult-to-lose areas such as thighs, arms, back, and duh - belly fats. It’s also jam-packed with lots of metabolic goodness - from eliminating hormonal obesity, balancing blood sugar level, to enhancing positive moods (goodbye mood swings), this body sculptor definitely deserves all praise.

#4 Eat Foods That are High in Phytoestrogens

Wait. Phyto-whaaat? As mentioned above, we’ve learned that estrogen level declines when approaching menopause, leading to weight gain, pot-belly, and other uncomfortable changes. Nevertheless, when our hormones are balanced, these symptoms can be minimized.

Phytoestrogens are naturally-derived plant compounds that mimic the effects of estrogen in the body. Simply put, they help balance hormones, which may also help in preventing the menopausal weight gain. Studies have also shown that phytoestrogens can increase fat-free mass and reduce fat accumulation as well. 

Rich sources of phytoestrogens can be found in food like soybeans and soy products, tofu, tempeh, flaxseeds, linseeds, sesame seeds, and beans. But if these aren’t up in your alley and you want a simpler solution - supplements it is!

Meet The Safest & Most Potent Phytoestrogen

Pueraria Mirifica (PM), a natural herb that contains at least 17 phytoestrogens has been used for over 100 years to treat various hormonal imbalance conditions and menopausal symptoms including weight gain. Studies show that it can delay musculoskeletal aging while retaining muscle strength, keeping the body firm and sculpted. Now the great news! We’ve included this praiseworthy ingredient in lolvita™, the next-gen hormonal balancer and menopause reliever.   

Each capsule not only prevents weight gain caused by menopause but also relieves its symptoms such as hot flashes, night sweats, mood swings, and low sex drive. In fact, it’s also known as the Happy Capsule, working to improve mood by increasing Serotonin levels (the mood-boosting hormones)!
