Menses, Now Menopause - Enough Already

One of the foremost menopause symptoms seems to be weight-gain and a change in the overall shape of the woman's body. It is important to keep in mind that this weight gain is normal and to be expected due to lack of exercise and a surplus of calories than to a reduction of hormones. During menopause, you will begin to put weight on around your abdomen, instead of around your hips, thighs, and rear. There is also a hormonal driven shift in the body fat distribution to mid-section fat stores in menopause. Because your metabolism slows as you get older, you need about 200 fewer calories a day to maintain your weight as you get into your mid- to late 40s. As you enter the early stages of menopause, maintaining weight becomes more and more difficult, and losing weight becomes almost impossible. This is because of the fluctuation in your hormones. Your body's hormones have a direct impact on your appetite, metabolism, and fat storage. At this stage, women develop "insulin resistance" making their bodies store fat, rather than burn calories.

Many people with thinning hair think that there is no way to be saved, BUT THERE IS! Cold fusion or microlinks is a new extension method that is not offered by many.
