    When you reach menopause your body wants more fat because fat is a source of estrogen.
    You don’t want those extra pounds, so in this video I’ll show you how to keep belly fat under control by starving your fat cells, without starving yourself.
    Menopause changes two things:
    1. It change where fat is stored on your body (i.e. more gets deposited in your midsection and less in your lower body).
    2. It changes where estrogen is produced. The ovaries no longer make estrogen, but your fat cells do, so higher body fat% is not frowned upon by your post-menopausal body.
    Cortisol is another hormone that is not automatically thought about with menopause, but it contributes to belly fat.
    Think of cortisol as the stress hormone, physical or emotional stress, even a lack of sleep causes an increased release of cortisol.
    Bottom Line: you have to work with your body during and after menopause to get it to do what you want.
    The trick is to starve your fat cells without starving yourself.
    In this video I show you how with the right food choices and time-restricted eating.

    I just started doing this.. I started Menopause 4 years ago and now I just want sugar, sugar, sugar! Which I didn't so much before.. I'm making better foods choices, no bread, no pasta, no corn, no potatoes, no sugar, no sodas ect.. and for the first time my scale is the lowest I've seen it!

    we all know that "moderate" acohol intake creates a physical dependency to alcohol, which you chose to omit.
    Will you also promote other addictive weight loss methods like nicotine?

  • Christine Carlos
    Christine Carlos 14 days ago

    NOTES:
    1) Food choices
    - avoid low calorie foods; do portion control
    - artificial sweeteners-- inflammatory food; cortisol is increased by this (cortisol stress hormone auses belly fat
    - low fat but more sugar; refined/ processed food
    - EAT more high fiber food: veggies, beans, fruit, healthy fat (avocados, nuts, chia seeds, healthy oils)
    - Use herbs: cinnamon (helps blood sugar to be neutral); low sugar chocolate
    - Alcohol: moderate (1 drink a day; 12 oz beer, 5 oz wine, 1 oz hard) helps weight control
    2) Time restricted eating
    - intermittent fasting (12 hrs of the day to fast); you burn fat. Don't 3 hrs before eating. Delay breakfast until you reach the 12 hr window. This encourages fat (& sugar) burning.

    Thank you for this informative information!! My daughter follows this pretty much! I have been on weight watchers for a couple of years and within 5-10 lbs to get to my goal weight finally!! I need to try your way to maintain and get these last few pounds off!! I really think this will work to get my metabolism back on track too! After all I do want to get out of all the low fat/fat free foods and eat healthy fats again! I eat a lot of fruit and eat fairly good but haven’t been able to move the scale in months!!!!

    I will try this, thanks for the advice. I'm now a subscriber. Also, I would just like to add, because with menopause I find that I have insomnia, so I am not able to get the recommended amount of sleep. Hopefully, the eating choices that you recommend will be enough to help me with my belly fat.

    High cacao, low sugar chocolate (some high cocao has alot of sugar) is all I've eaten for years. Alcohol has tons of sugar, beer has more sugar than most soda.
    I've wondered for years if my night owl ways have contributed to belly fat :( Also hypothyroid, which contributes to a slow metabolism.

    SpamMusubi1226 22 days ago

    I wish I had known this 10 years ago when I was going through menopause! I knew weight gain was likely, and over the years I put on maybe 20 pounds. Found out about time-restricted eating from my husband, who is T2D and HE found out about it through a focus group discussion on managing diabetes. Thinking I too might be getting insulin resistant, I started 16:8 IF, and have lost 8 pounds in two months. It's a sustainable lifestyle, and I'm hoping to lose all my "menopausal weight" in the next few months. Haven't noticed a decrease in belly fat yet, but there must be some because my pants fit better.

    I find the 16/8 fast works much better, eating between the hours of 11am to 7pm and water fasting through the night. Water helps to keep you hydrated, blood pressure regulated and flushes any toxins out during your fasting period. I also find plant based eating the most effective way to keep the fat off. Vegetables, fruits, nuts, seeds, legumes etc, it's all good. 👍

      N A I don’t drink alcohol either. It’s good, however, that she address it because many do drink and it would be important to include how much if any might be beneficial and/or harmful for them. She certainly wasn’t suggesting that we start drinking If we don’t already.

My big issue is on a small frame, my abdomens fat is so tightly condensed, that I cant seem to exercise enough to get the sugar levels cause me to get the "SHAKES". I have drinken more water, no caffeine and diet drinks. I really want more than ever to try and lose the weight in the upper abdomen and bustline WITHOUT the side effects of the shakes.. Is there a good vitamin supplement that could be recommended to maintain the sugar levels in the blood to resist this problem.

    I don't do carbs much at all and have been carb averse since Atkins in the early 2000s. However, I'm perimenopausal and for the first time in my life, my belly is actin like it's in control and giving me the finger! I just got Ashwaganda, Rhodiola and will purchase VITEX next paycheck. I have been KETO for two months but no weight loss. Might be because I added IF and extensive exercise. Too much too soon. Anyway, I'm alternating intermittent fasting and mostly KETO but my carb count will be slightly higher than 20%, it's stressing me out and raising my cortisol levels too much.
    Hoping for better success.

I thought that it would be impossible... because I had a large stomach for a long time. It worked . My diet consisted of vegetables and meats and a smoothie of spinach and pineapple just about every day along with exercise, but sticking to this diet was damn hard at first , but I'm conquering my sugar(s) addiction so far...

    I think women's they stressing too much about menopause ... I believe you should stop about It .. This my suggestion bcz I saw online so much ..blablablabla ... I got my weight up to 93kg I'm 178cm ...
    My best moment is menopause bcz I don't have to care anymore about pregnancy N that makes me very happy happy ... I lost 14kg
    Just started gym n I eat what I like to eat .. After that gym .. It's amazing period of my life !!!
    Thanks menopause !
    Woman's don't think so much !
    No stress !
    Menopause is a huge marketing .. Business ...

    I like all this but just a comment on the beginning of the video when the doctor says "I am 48 so I understand menopause" I am 49 and have periods every 28 days like clockwork. Never have had cramps, I don't know what that is really. Period lasts 2 days. So 48 does not always equal menopause...

    Hello, I am 59 so post menopausal but I take HRT. I started these around a year ago to help with some other issues and they help a lot but I did notice a 10 pound weight gain over the last year that is close to impossible to lose. Do you think it is the HRT or something else? Also, does this advice apply to post-menopausal women?

    Oh thank you I feel isolated with illness and same always had flat tummy before uterus then both ovaries removed. Hate this flabby tummy. I think oestrogen lives in fat and that’s why we grow tummies.

    im so glad i found this, i dont feel so alone anymore. i have always had what an hour glass shape. and then had my gall bladder removed and started noticing my belly getting bigger, and rolls which ive never had, alot of bloating and soooooooo uncomfortable in my own skin. no one understood. i blamed everything on the surgery. even tho had to come out. lol. i had my hormones checked recently and was just told by my obgyn im in menopause. i found dr becky and wowwwwwwww i feel im not so crazy anymore and feel theres hope to getting some what of my shape back. so much information and so clearly explained. and reading all the comments i know that theres alot of us struggling with the same issues. it sucks , really does. but ima give it all i got. Thank you
