Menopause is often accompanied by weight gain, but if you want to do something about it, we can help. Believe me, you do not have to starve to lose weight!
Menopause means the total loss of menstrual periods as a part of the reproductive cycle, which usually begins for women in their forties and lasts into their fifties.
If you have these symptoms:
- hot flushes
- mood swings
- irregular menstruation
- change in your body shape
you are probably going through the change.
Unfortunately, at this time issues with self-esteem also come to the fore. Most women’s figures change over the age of fifty, extra pounds are easy to gain and hard to shed. Would you like to do something about it? Would you like to stay pretty? You don't need to lose confidence because of the menopause.
Because of the menopause, you should definitely reckon on slimming at a slower pace, because your metabolism is slower due to the changes in hormone production. We recommend the following method for your diet:
- 30 day Turbo Diet Plan combined with meals, or
- replacement of evening meals with helpings of Turbo Diet® shake drinks, and eating food with a total of 1200-1500 calories during the day. Choose this if you have put on 1-2 kilos! This corresponds to the 3rd stage of the 30 day plan.
- in order to speed up the metabolic processes it is worth exercising too, we recommend primarily exercises of a cardio nature.
1 helping made with milk: 4 measuring spoons (35g) of shake powder mixed with 300ml of milk with 1.5% fat content. Made with water or (vegetable) milk with less than 1% fat, use 5 measuring spoons (approx. 43g) for each serving. With this you are replacing the protein content of the milk, you are not taking in extra calories. Of the vegetable milks, we do not recommend rice milk due to the higher carbohydrate content.
For women over 165 cm and for men, we recommend eating an afternoon snack during the plans, at around 17.00 hours. If you are over 180 cm, a low-sugar fruit (e.g. apple) should be eaten for a snack at around 11.00 hours.
If you play intensive sports (at least 45-60 minutes), then drink half a serving of Turbo Diet® shake made with water before the training and half afterwards. If you exercise more intensively than this, then ask for personalised advice.
