Good news! Aging does not have to equal weight gain. Women do tend to put on a pound a year in their 40s and 50s, but it’s more likely due to a drop in activity rather than hormones. Find out how to stay slim, reduce menopausal symptoms, and cut the health risks that can rise after menopause.
Get Sufficient Sleep
A natural way of stimulating hGH (human growth hormone) production is getting enough shuteye. During sleep, the brain releases human growth hormone (hGH) into the bloodstream. This occurs during the first stage of sleep, but during middle age the body produces less hGH. So if you’re in that age bracket and not sleeping well, your efforts to maintain a healthy weight will be compromised. Don’t skimp on sleep!
