Weight Gain and Metabolic Health in Perimenopause



Ever felt like your body’s betraying you during perimenopause, with every attempt to manage weight feeling like an uphill battle? I’m right there with you. You may have noticed your metabolism slowing down once you’ve hit your 40s/50s even though you’re still eating the same and moving the same.  This episode is packed with insights into the hormonal whirlwind that’s affecting our bodies during perimenopause. I’m not just talking about the numbers on the scale, I’m focusing on the decrease in oestrogen that’s hitting us with muscle loss, a messed up metabolism, and the annoying increase in fat storage that no one asked for. Let’s not forget the joint pain and exhaustion that seem to conspire against us, making the motivation to move feel like a distant memory. I’ll be getting real about my own journey through these struggles and sharing how critical it is to find that spark to keep active, seek the right support, and power through this transition with grace and energy.

I’ll also be getting into the nitty-gritty of metabolic flexibility, which seems to be the latest buzzword. It’s that secret sauce to reduce the risk of weight gain and chronic diseases. And yes, it gets trickier as we cruise through perimenopause, but I’m here to walk you through how we can reignite that ability to switch from burning glucose to burning fat. Forget empty promises of quick fixes; we’re building sustainable habits with smart diet tweaks, resistance training to sculpt and strengthen, and yoga to bring it all together in a harmonious blend of wellness. It’s not just about fitting into those jeans from 5 years ago—it’s about cultivating a body and mind that’s robust, resilient, and ready to embrace all the adventures that lie ahead. Tune in and let’s embark on this journey to not only look amazing but feel unstoppable at any age.
