Learn how to make weight loss easier after menopause and perimenopause. Losing weight after menopause can be tough. It requires a different diet plan - a lifestyle plan really. A drop in estrogen after menopause causes more weight gain in the stomach, or belly fat. It can be so frustrating to know how to get your flat stomach back.

This video will point you in the right direction and explain why insulin resistance is to blame. If you’re over 50, and especially if your postmenopausal, the drop in your estrogen naturally causes a rise in insulin resistance. Insulin is your fat storage hormone. More insulin = more fat.
