To Inspire You To Live Your Best Life in a Body You Love without giving up Wine🍷or Chocolate 🍫!
How I got here
I had been following a healthy whole food plant based diet since 2007.
Everything was going perfectly and back in 2007 I had lost 20lbs, I felt energized and vibrant, in fact I had breezed through peri-menopause with only minor symptoms and made it through my 40s maintaining my lean figure! I mean, why not? Everyone knows that a whole foods, plant-based diet keeps you healthy & lean, right?
But then menopause hit, with a vengeance, when I was 51, and even though I continued with a whole food plant-based diet, the pounds started creeping on, and on, and on until I had gained over 25 lbs!
OMG, I can't tell you how surprised I was!
Why was I gaining weight when I was doing everything right?
I felt confused, frustrated, discouraged and at my wits end….
Why was this happening to me? Was I really destined for the “box-shaped body” the "middle age spread" that “they” say all women over 40 are destined for?
Nooooooooo, I didn't want that!
I was bound & determined… I started researching, and researching and researching… I did NOT want to settle for the box-shaped body!
There just had to be a solution, there had to be….
Well, I'm happy to say, I found the answer…. woohoo!
Let me start my saying, one of the biggest MYTHS that we have been told over and over and over again, is that ...."women over the age of 40 are going to gain weight and there is NOTHING that we can do about it…. we are all destined for increased pounds in the most undesired places!"
I mean, we have all felt it – our bodies literally begin to change overnight, with increased abdominal fat, that infamous muffin top. Even if you eat well and do everything right, it feels as if your body is working against you!
Diet & exercise just don't seem to work anymore.
Does that sound familiar?
That's what happened to me. My waist just seemed to thicken, I was edgier, cravings for anything and everything came back with a vengeance, I was grumpier and just felt ‘YUK'!
Luckily through all my research and new understanding of the middle age spread MYTH, how hormones and stress impact our weight, and especially how unbalanced blood sugar & insulin resistance plays havoc for so many of us …..
I learned that it is definitely possible to beat the middle age spread and take control of our bodies just like we did in your 20s and 30s!
Yup, I kid you not! It is possible ladies!
By making just a few modifications to my diet (lowering carbs/increasing healthy fats), my body turned into a fat burning machine and the pounds melted away, my energy returned, my mental clarity returned and I was back to my old self! In fact, I felt BETTER than my old self!
Within 8 weeks I had shed those pesky 25+lbs of my unwanted weight, and I've kept it off!
I was in AWWWW, I was soooo happy and more important, I felt amazing!
Following this Healthy menopause fat loss approach has given me my shape back, my waist is trim again, my skin is glowing, I feel super energized, I have more clarity of mind, but mostly I just feel amazing, truly amazing. I feel like a million bucks!
I feel better today at 60 than I EVER have, EVER! Yup, even better than when I was plant-based days! That's HUGE!
