Sometimes a client would confess to me, “I know what I’m supposed to do, but I just can’t do it!” and I would feel like screaming “ME TOO!”
Today’s post explores the idea of eating three meals a day as a way of maintaining a healthy weight or losing excess weight.
Previously, I discussed the effects of estrogen on your body, including subsequent weight gain. The hormone I will be discussing in this article is cortisol, also known as the stress hormone.
Menopause and weight gain often go together thanks to a combination of hormonal disharmony, slower metabolism and lifestyle factors.
What stories do you tell yourself that keep you from losing weight?
We all have our little stories, like the things we believe about ourselves and our relationship with food and weight loss. There are stories that we have believed for so long that we don’t even question them.
Have you been counting calories or points ever since you can remember and still struggle with losing weight after 50? In reality, being overweight has much less to do with calories than it has to do with food choices.
When I was growing up in the 50s, we sat down and ate three meals every day. My Mom always made breakfast for the family. It would vary from hot porridge to dropped egg on toast to cereal and banana.
Eating mindfully is the single most effective way to lose weight and to maintain a healthy weight throughout your life. But did you know that it will also get rid of many digestive problems?
You’re trying to lose weight, maybe for the third time. Or maybe it’s the 30th.
But you really want it to be the last time. You’d love to finally put the kibosh on this post-menopausal weight gain once and for all!
