“I HAVEN’T LOST ANY WEIGHT AND ALL I’VE EATEN FOR FOUR WEEKS IS SALAD; IN FACT, I’VE GAINED 3 LBS!”
by Dr. Neale
I hear this, on average, 3 times per day:
“If all this eating good isn’t going to produce results I might as well eat whatever I want.”
“I’m so tired of thinking about what I’m eating, it doesn’t seem to make a difference anyway.”
“I have tried everything. I look at a donut and gain 5 lbs.”
Weight loss isn’t a simple formula for women over 35. What worked for you to maintain or shed weight prior to age 35 years old won’t quite cut it post 35 years old. That’s the good news. It isn’t that nothing is working it is that you haven’t reworked the formula adjusting for your age.
Most give up before a TRY is completed.
What makes a try a try?
For women over 35 years old, a try (in my humble experience) equals consistent functional eating:
- ALONG SIDE movement that works your large muscle groups against gravity** comprehensively
- ALONG SIDE metabolic support and hormone replacement
- OR balancing ALONG SIDE microbiome and digestive optimization.
HERE IS THE KICKER THOUGH: for a minimum of three years!
Wait, wait, there is good news. You’ll see results along the way of course!
**I recommend PILATES on a reformer with instruction. Time to graduate out of the “cardio until I drop, if I’m not panting and dripping sweat I’m not exercising” mindset. PS. Walking and getting your steps in doesn’t quite count. We need to lift weight to lose weight.
