My weightloss and Menopause

Ever since I turned 50 I have struggled to lose weight. I’ve never had this problem before in my younger years I was able to drop the weight quite quickly that I put on. This was because I guess my metabolism was a lot faster, and I was probably a lot more active than I am now.

It doesn’t actually help that I’m going through the menopausal stages. Boy are these hot flashes taken their toll on my body 😆

So I’ve been trying all sorts of diets, low-fat, low carbs, high fat, high protein just trying to find one that works with my menopausal body.

So seven days ago I embarked on a new type of diet one which personalises my macros and I can eat anything I want as long as they fit inside those macros. Right now I’m loving it, but I’m sure it’s calculating my calories is far too high because there is no way I’m able to eat all those calories I feel really fat 🤪

But the evidence is clear after seven days 3.6lbs down, my skin looks a lot healthier, I don’t have as much bloatedness which was a big issue for me, my bowels seem to be a lot more regular, and I don’t have as much brain fog and not as tired as I was before.

Of course there are a few lifestyle changes I made along with my diet. Going to keep on this for the next seven days and let you know how I’m doing.

If you have tried different things for the menopause let me know what’s working for you.
