Menopause is an important milestone in a woman’s life. It marks a new chapter in their life that results in many changes. One not-so-welcomed change is weight gain. This occurs due to a drop in estrogen levels in the body. Other issues like insomnia, slower metabolism, and loss of muscle tone can all be linked to the associated weight gain.
Here are some ways you can effectively combat this:
Give your body the nutrition it needs
To lose weight your body needs to be in a caloric deficit. That means you need to consume fewer calories than you burn in a day. We often underestimate the calories we consume since we don’t weigh out our food. Secondly, your body requires nutrients to fuel it. Nutrient-dense foods should be standard for all your meals as well as snacks. Fruits, vegetables, lean protein, nuts, and seeds are all great additions to your diet.
Focus on sleep
Poor sleep has been linked to weight gain time and again. In order to lose weight, prioritize sleep. Do everything possible to improve your quality of sleep and get the recommended 7 to 9 hours of sleep a day. Chamomile tea, lavender aromatherapy, a warm shower, etc. can help you fall asleep quicker.
Increase your active minutes
The only way you will lose weight is if you maintain a caloric deficit. In order to do that you need to increase your active minutes each day. Go out on walks, spend some time doing exercises, and add weights to those exercises as well. The increased weights help you tone your body and counteract muscle loss associated with menopause.
Stress increases the body’s cortisol levels. Not only is increased cortisol bad for your heart, but it can also result in weight gain. Assess the stress triggers in your life and try to remove them. Learn new techniques for managing your stress to help with your weight loss.
Weight loss hypnotherapy
Ladies who have been consistently gaining weight tend to feel trapped in their lifestyle and bad habits, further preventing them from making healthy changes in their lives.
Hypnotherapy for weight loss prepares them to make lifestyle adjustments like consuming healthy food and being more active. The deep relaxation felt during a hypnotherapy session allows the hypnotherapist to explore the things that are holding a person back from losing weight. The hypnotherapist then works on those emotions to help a client adopt healthier choices.
