Today, we’re gonna talk about how to lose weight after 40 and menopause.

Let’s continue on how to lose weight after 40 and menopause.

When a woman hasn’t had a menstrual period for 12 months, she is definitely in menopause.

It may be difficult to lose weight at this time.

In reality, many women discover that they gain weight during perimenopause, which can last up to a decade before menopause.

Weight increase around menopause is caused by a number of reasons, including

  • Hormone fluctuations.
  • Inadequate sleep.
  • Loss of muscle mass
  • And Increased insulin resistance

Furthermore, after menopause, fat storage transfers from the hips and thighs to the abdomen. Metabolic syndrome, type 2 diabetes, and heart disease are all increased as a result of this.

As a result, techniques that encourage abdominal fat loss are especially crucial at this time of life.

What can you do about it then?

The first one will be a real shocker…

Mind What You Eat

Some specialists believe that a constant diet rich in unprocessed carbs like pasta and bread is a significant influence in increased abdominal fat.

“Carbs are the middle-aged woman’s worst enemy,”. “If you’re perimenopausal, pay attention to how much sugar you consume.

In our bodies, carbohydrates are converted to sugar.

Some burn faster than others, such as candy bars, while oatmeal burns more slowly, but it all eventually transforms to sugar.

My way of losing weight was by sipping on a special kind of smoothie, which you again can find at the top of this post

Try to do some exercise

As we become older, we tend to be less active, that’s quite normal


Exercise may be more necessary than ever during and after menopause.

It can boost your mood, help you lose weight, and protect your muscles and bones.

Resistance exercise with weights or bands is an excellent way to maintain or even gain lean muscle mass.

With age and hormonal changes, lean muscle mass usually decreases

I’m really not saying that you need to start going to a gym.

Just search up some youtube videos on Tai Chi and start doing some easy moves.

Even just standing up instead of sitting all day, will go a far way helping you to maintain weight.

Sleep and Stress

Having a stressful life will often result in less sleep.

It takes time for the body to fully relax and get sleepy.

Due to hot flashes, night sweats, stress, and other physical symptoms of estrogen depletion, many women in menopause have problems sleeping.

If you feel that your sleep isn’t what it used to be, try something new..

Download some free app with ambient music or guided meditations.

Even if you think it’s humbug, give it a go and see how your body responds to it.

These were some of the most important things you can do on how to lose weight after 40 and menopause

I hope you got some tips from it.

I now wish you a lovely day

God Bless
