I created The Balance Program just for you!
The way we digest and store the food we eat, how we handle stress, the quality of our sleep, the type of exercise our bodies need all change as we enter perimenopause. How we adapt determines how smooth or turbulent the journey through these years will be, how well we age.
Insulin resistance is an important concept that will set you up for a more comfortable peri/menopause. There is a connection between what you eat, how your body reacts to it and your hormone balance, inflammation, weight changes, and just about every symptom of peri/menopause
“Don’t eat for weight loss - eat for blood sugar balance”. Women in peri/menopause become more insulin resistant., meaning eating high amounts of carbohydrates will probably lead to blood sugar spikes. Meal planning is essential to avoid eating foods that will upset hormone balance. Planning also helps to control portions.
Exercise plays a huge role in helping to balance hormones. Strength training is critical for keeping our muscle mass and for keeping bones strong. High intensity bursts during workouts are best for weight loss and weight maintenance. Staying hydrated maintains metabolism, benefits skin health, and facilitates a thorough detoxification.
Stress and anxiety become an issue or are amplified in peri/menopause. Getting to sleep, staying asleep, and quality of sleep are all concerns for most women. Our sleep deprived brain is less able to make good eating choices, so we may go astray from a healthy eating plan and eat more impulsively in an under slept state.
Now that you’ve made the essential adjustments for a healthy peri/menopause let’s make sure you keep these new habits a daily practice.
When you sign up you’ll receive a welcome email with the details of the 6-week program. Each week you’ll receive hard-to-find information that we are never told about perimenopause and menopause. Each module includes worksheets, menus, recipes, and a collection of additional resources.
It takes time to make changes. The Balance Program is designed to help you learn what lifestyle changes will significantly improve issues with weight, sleep, stress, and more. You’ll need to set aside time to read through each module and track daily changes in what you eat, how you move, how you sleep, and how these changes affect your symptoms.
You’ll learn so much during these 6 weeks and continue to study and be more aware of your health long afterwards.
The Balance Program is for you if you are in perimenopause, menopause, or even premenopause. Before you are in perimenopause is the best time to prepare to stay healthy,strong, and minimize symptoms. Even if you don’t have many symptoms you’ll benefit from learning how to protect your health.
You will have access to the Balance Program content throughout the 6 weeks of the session you’ve enrolled in.
I’ll be moderating the community chat where we can discuss general questions regarding the program. If you have more individual questions requiring knowledge of your health history and managing any health conditions while in perimenopause, I’d recommend following up the program with 1-1 Fresh Balance Nutrition coaching.
