Perimenopause Weight Gain
Weight gain is a pesky problem, and can be especially pernicious for perimenopausal and menopausal women.
There is little scientific evidence to show why weight gain is congruent with age. We all know that it is more difficult to handle stressful situations as we age and that we slow down and do not exercise as much, further causing declines in metabolic rates.
Food and entertainment may have replaced a more active and energetic lifestyle. Unfortunately, sedentary people tend to gain more weight than active ones.
There is another type of weight gain that can affect perimenopausal and menopausal women. A reduction in hormones coupled with a decline in estrogen levels can actually promote excess body fat, especially around the middle. This is true even if a woman has always maintained a trim, svelte waistline in previous years.
Scientists have directly linked a decline in estrogens and hormone levels to female belly fat. Weight gain in this area puts more stress on the heart, lungs, liver and kidneys (and other vital organs), and could be why women in their 50’s are equally vulnerable (for the first time) to heart and vascular diseases as their male counterparts.
Tests have concluded that there is not much that a woman can do about this phenomena and that once gained, belly fat is hard to remove.
Rigorous exercise does help especially load-bearing exercises like walking and mild weight training. Swimming is more of an aerobic exercise but does help to burn excess calories.
Hormone replacement therapy and bioidentials while effective are laden with far too many risk factors.
