As people age, weight gain becomes inevitable. Muscle mass starts to decrease while fat composition starts to increase. Therefore, women going through perimenopause and menopause, more often than not, experience increases in their weight.
The best time to fight mid-age weight gain is during Perimenopuase.
If you're unsure that you're going through perimenopause, we recommend reaching out to you health care provider for further testing. Your doctor may suggest blood tests to check if you're in transition to menopause (aka perimenopause).

According to the Mayo Clinic, weight gain as we age is unavoidable but manageable. Begin by reducing or cutting foods and drinks with little to no nutritional value such as alcohol, sweets, and processed foods. Replace these with more fresh fruits and vegetables.
