Dr Brooke Show #392 What Causes Perimenopause + Menopause Weight Gain

April 13, 2024

You may have heard lately that it’s not a “lower metabolism” that causes weight gain and more body fat around the middle during midlife. While this may be what research is showing us as not a mechanism, many of us have found our pants are indeed not fitting so great so what IS causing the weight gain?

Is it hormone changes or slack habits? Is it something we need to take HRT to get on top of? What exactly will the popular fitness advice of eating enough protein and lifting weights really do for our mid-life bodies? I cover exactly what the shifts in hormones do to your motivation, mood and metabolism in this episode as well as the one thing NO ONE is talking about…and it’s not really solved by taking hormones or strength training.
