Lose 10 Pounds Quickly Even After Menopause

Yes, it is possible to lose 10 pounds quickly after menopause.
Because of the changes that happen to your body during menopause, it may take a little longer than it did when you were in your twenties, but you still can do it.
It also doesn't help that there's so much pressure on women to look young.
But that's the way it is, and, after all, who doesn't want to look younger, healthier, and...
yes, even sexier! The reason it's harder to lose 10 pounds quickly after menopause is that the change in life makes women's metabolism slow down and it also encourages less physical activity.
Not only that, but there's also the issue of massive hormonal changes.
But we'll talk about those separately.
The good news is that you probably didn't gain the 10 pounds you want to lose overnight.
You probably were well on your way to gaining it even before menopause.
What brought the weight on was a change in lifestyle away from an active, physical lifestyle coupled with an improper diet.
The issue now is it's going to take longer to get the weight off.
As you grow older, your body starts to lose muscle.
Muscle weighs more than fat, but it also burns about three times the calories than fat.
Less muscle, less fat burning capability, which means all those extra calories you're eating end up where you don't want them.
Around your mid-section and hips.
Of course, lack of exercise plays a big role in this process.
Exercise speeds up your metabolism, while menopause tends to slow it down.
Scientists have shown that women naturally get less active physically just before menopause hits.
If you're naturally inclined to move less, you'll not want to exercise.
Not exercising results in not only burning fewer calories during the day, but also in losing muscle as described above.
Another issue is the hormonal changes that your body is experiencing.
Loss of estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone make it harder for your body to maintain its weight.
All of this can make you gain a few pounds, which are going to be difficult to take off.
You can lose 10 pounds quickly, even if you're menopausal, but you're going to have to work harder at it, and also understand how menopause impacts your body and health
