1 Easy Way to Get Slim and Sexy Past “The Change”
Let’s be honest, most of the news for women past “the change” seems to be bad. I’ve written to you any number of times about how to reverse this… but let’s talk about some news that’s good on the face of it. Like how it’s easier to get slim and sexy past “the change.”
Life sure isn’t fair. But I don’t know of anything less fair than the end of a woman’s fertile period. Hot flashes…. mood swings… sexual difficulties… It’s pretty rough.
That’s why I’m so happy to bring good news for a change…
All those workouts will finally start paying off.
And not just “behind the scenes.” It’s actually easier for more mature women to get slim and sexy than their younger counterparts.
Most of the time, we think of “the change” as a time when women get heavier and thicker. And most do. But here’s the good news: It’s easier for you to get slim and sexy than it is for those younger ladies.
You finally have something to crow about.
According to the North American Menopause Society, women past “the change” tend to be less active. That’s no surprise. But what is surprising is they found light physical activity had a much stronger effect on women who’d been through “the change” than women who hadn’t.1
In other words, they could work less and get a bigger benefit.
This is good news. And not the least because post-menopausal women tend to gain weight more easily than younger women.
Research also shows moderate physical activity can lower your risk of blockages of oxygen to the brain. Even just walking briskly every day can lower your risk.1 This is especially important if you have high blood sugar – which puts you at greater risk of this problem.
But regular, moderate exercise – such as brisk walking – can help ensure circulation to your brain isn’t interrupted… with all the problems that entails.
Moderate physical activity also appears to lower your risk of “silent” blockages. In fact, it appears to cut your risk in half.2
If staying slimmer and sexier, and avoiding brain damage weren’t enough, here’s another reason to be regularly active after “the change.”
Women who do, tend to enjoy greater bone mass. In fact, women who stayed active tended to reverse bone loss, according to one review of studies.3
The bottom line? Staying active after “the change” helps you stay healthier. But it does more. Even moderate activity – such as brisk walking – may help you stay slimmer and sexier.
And it will take even less effort than before the change.
Every stage in aging has drawbacks and advantages. With these studies, we know how to avoid certain drawbacks… and make the most of one of the advantages.
Yours in continued good health,
