Dealing with menopause can impact various aspects of your life. One major issue that you are likely to notice is that it can be hard to lose weight easily. Your metabolism slows down and the loss of hormones can affect how your body loses weight. This can affect your confidence and cause complications that are associated with weight gain. Dr. McConnell, or our program director Rachel Smith, DNP, ARNP, at Discover Health in West Bradenton, FL, can explain how you can manage your weight after menopause and meet all of your weight loss goals.
Managing Your Weight After Menopause
Menopause can affect every part of your life. This includes your weight. When you aren’t managing your weight, you are putting yourself at risk for heart and breathing issues, as well as type 2 diabetes. It’s important that you talk to our weight loss specialists in West Bradenton, FL, about how you can manage your weight and feel your best.
One of the most important things that you can do to manage your weight is by maintaining a healthy diet and exercise regimen. You should be watching what you eat since your metabolism slows down after menopause. You should be reducing your overall calorie intake for each day and exercising multiple times a week.
Our specialist can also check if there are other factors that could be influencing your weight gain. This could be thyroid issues or other medications that might be hindering you. They can help you manage your medications and may even suggest medications to help with weight loss.
