How to Lose Weight During Menopause

Hey friends, I hope you are rockin your week!

I want to introduce you to my friend, amazing momma, stylin’ television personality and legit dietician, Jennifer McDaniel.

Jen and I met at our local television station over eight years ago. I was brought on to share fitness tips with the St. Louis peeps, and Jen was brought on to share nutrition tips. We chatted before and after our segments, and a friendship was struck.

Many (more like tons) of you have asked me how to lose weight while going through menopause or the beginning stages of menopause. So, I reached out to Jen and asked if she would join me on our podcast and share with you how to help lose and/or maintain weight during this time of our life.

Here are a few topics we cover:

- Menopause weight gain – why it happens.

- The best foods to eat to help you lose weight during this time.

- The anti-weight gain menopause diet (yep, she tells us what to eat!)

- The one truth Jen shared that SHOCKED me (and it will change WHAT time you eat!)

- The best carbs to eat to maintain a lean body.

- What to avoid if you are struggling with your sleep.  

While Jen and I dive into some serious business, we also enjoy a lot of laughs. We talk about what caused me not to poop, and why I love day drinking.

If you have some time today, I would love for you to listen to our podcast. I have been doing this for thirty-four years, and I LEARNED something new listening to Jen!

As always, I so appreciate you. And, I love your suggestions. Please continue to reach out with your ideas and comments.  It is why I do what I do.

Take care this week, make good choices and remember, invest in yourself :)

Much love,

PS. Here is link to the research we chatted about in the podcast: High Caloric intake at breakfast vs. dinner differentially influences weight loss of overweight and obese women.

And here is a link to check out Jenn's website and the genetic testing we chatted about:

    Hi Lors and Jen, hope you’re doing well. I am starting a podcast for personal trainers and I would be honored if you would like to be a guest.
    I am trying to line up several professionals specializing in marketing, sales, results and referrals on a weekly basis but also diving into topics such as mentorship, commitment to lifelong learning, finding your niche and so much more. I’m on a mission to bridge the gap between personal trainers and Real fitness professionals. If you’re interested please let me know so we can set something up. As I said it would be an honor and I appreciate your consideration. Have a great day.
