Discover How Women Can Still Lose Weight While Going the Change with HCG
We said it, the scary word, menopause. You may be thinking, “I am too young to think about menopause” but the reality is that most women experience menopause between the ages of 45-55 and although rare, as early as their 30’s! Yikes! Menopause, it is one of the dreaded milestones, a passage and a stage in life that all women have to go through. In a way it is a rite of passage for all women worldwide. The technical meaning of menopause is an absence of a menstrual cycle every month and the body’s progression into no longer being able to bear children. One of the upsides to this is no more cramping, pain or having to deal with that pesky period. However, menopause does come with its own hurdles to jump through. Early symptoms can include fluctuations in menstrual cycles, including duration and sometimes skipping altogether. With hormonal balance out of its normal rhythm, women tend to notice that they are more irritable or depressed while possibly experiencing anxiety and weight gain. The decrease in estrogen production produces hot flashes, night sweats, and can cause sleep pattern changes (insomnia).
One thing that is synonymous with “the change” as mentioned above, is weight-gain, and it is a different kind of weight-gain than that of our youth. During menopause, normal levels of Estradiol are reduced which then cause fat cells to actually get bigger. Just simply exercising will not help to rectify this – caloric intake must be decreased as well. This is partly due to the extreme hormonal changes that are going on. Your body is suddenly lacking in hormones that it has been used to having its whole life while experiencing increased levels of other hormones.

Reduced Calorie Intake without Extreme Hunger: Part of the hCG diet is a restricted caloric intake.
