Medical experts inform us there’s little evidence that menopause should be a direct cause of weight gain or an inability to lose weight. Weight does tend to increase with age and many people tend to see an increase in weight, particularly during middle age. This is thought to be primarily due to changes in lifestyle and a gradual decrease in the amount of physical activity we do.


Increasing your level of physical activity can not only help weight loss by helping you expend more energy when you’re active, but it also helps preserve muscle tissue and raise your metabolic rate.


Another way many of our members like to give their weight loss a boost is by including plenty of Speed foods in their daily Food Optimizing plan. Speed foods contain fewer calories than other foods, and can be a great help in giving your weight loss a kick start.
