If you are looking to lose weight, especially after the hormonal changes of peri-menopause and after menopause, intermittent fasting can be a powerful tool to augment your success. Don’t let fasting intimidate you. If you are worried that you will be starving, stop. If you get started right and progress slowly, you can easily work this practice into your lifestyle. 

Aside from weight loss, there are many other benefits of using intermittent fasting. You will have increased human growth hormone and ability to build more muscle if you eat properly and train. You will have improved cellular repair, and likely experience increased energy and mental focus.
