Women’s Wellness: Experience Wellness as you get older.
|What influences wellness in women?|
*Body shape changes and weight changes
|1. Body Shape Changes|
Just as death and taxes are inevitable, some aspects of your body condition are inevitable, too. You cannot change them, but you can make the best of them. They seem like barriers to achieving your ideal size, but they don’t have to be. They are as follows: aging, genetics, hormones, menopause (for women), middle-age spread (for both men and women), and childbirth.
The Aging Weight Myth
There is a popular myth about aging and weight that goes like this: as you get older, you get bigger. It’s only a myth. You don’t need to get bigger as you age. Plenty of older people have great bodies and enjoy eating and stay at their ideal size. Remember, all you need is one example of a myth not being true to know that it doesn’t need to be true for you. Does age affect body size and shape at all? Of course. In general, as we age, our metabolism naturally slows down. A slower metabolism means we burn calories more slowly. So, eating less food helps to avoid weight gain. But you can also keep your metabolism high through strength training and eating well nutritionally.
|Tips for maintaining a healthy body as you age:|
1. Watch your calorie intake by avoiding fatty and processed foods.
2. Take a good multivitamin, enough calcium, magnesium, vitamin D, Vitamin C, Protein and fiber.
3. Maintain a healthy body and healthy mind with enough oily fish and / or taking omega 3 fish oil supplements .
4. Exercise by combining cardiovascular exercise like walking and cycling with weight training and body contouring (e.g. Pilates)
5. Each meal or snack must contain fiber (from fruit, vegetable, whole grain), lean protein from low fat dairy, lean meat or fish) and abundant nutrition (Fruit or vegetable)
*Low fat or fat free dairy like yogurt or smoothies made with fruit and yogurt
*Whole wheat crackers with low at cheese or hummus,
*dried fruit and nuts
*lean protein such as biltong, cold meat or protein bars.
Aagh! Those Raging Hormones!
Hormonal systems that are out of balance can wreak havoc on your weight-loss dreams. You could experience a slower metabolism, weight gain around your midsection, insulin resistance, and water retention, to name a few. Hormones are made within the body to stimulate and regulate cellular and glandular functions.
Peri-menopause is the 10-12 year transition leading up to menopause. During this time the body’s hormone production (especially estrogen) and metabolic rate slow down.
You have, however, considerable power to change your hormonal balance. A combination of proper and delicious nutrition, specific exercises, and plenty of sunshine on a regular basis can help keep your hormones in balance while freeing up excess stored fat.
You may have hormonal imbalances due to the surgical removal of glands such as the thyroid or ovaries. Replacement medications help. Work with your doctor to adjust your dosage so that you feel your best and have the most energy possible. Hormones definitely affect your weight, but you are not stuck with “bad” hormones. Your lifestyle makes a big difference.
|Menopause Isn’t a Menace|
As a woman gets to the age of about 50 (give or take), she goes through the change of life, or menopause. This process starts as early as age 30 with perim enopause. Her body changes in many ways as the production of estrogen slows down. Menstrual periods cease; metabolism slows; and the skin gets thinner.
As inevitable as menopause is, it doesn’t have to go hand in hand with weight gain. If you keep your body healthy by not eating too much, eating nutrient-packed foods, and exercises for both strength and stamina, she can stay at her ideal size with ease.
In other words, menopause is a fact of life. It is not an excuse for being overweight.
