FVY 37: Fit over 40 with Jenny May Clermont

FVY 37: Fit over 40 with Jenny May Clermont

 
We’re talking about women’s health- specifically hormones into a women’s 40s and beyond.  And when it comes to health and fitness, most women will notice that their bodies change during this time.  We hear things like “I used to be able to eat whatever I wanted, and now the weight just keeps creeping on”, “I’m gaining weight around my midsection and I don’t know what to do about it”.
 
If you is approaching, or is going through menopause, or are post-menopausal this episode is for you.  We talk belly fat, night sweats, hormone replacement, metabolism, and pretty much everything to do with the changing body.
 
We talk about:
  • Why the body may on to extra fat during the 40s and beyond (especially around the midsection)
  • Exactly why nutrition is so much more than calories in and calories out
  • What foods to focus on to optimize your health through your 40s and beyond
  • What type of exercise is important through your 40s and beyond- and why cardio may be working against you, not for you

Jenny May has generously put together a special download “The Truth About Midlife Weight Gain”.  Click here to download!

And if you’re new to strength training, I’ve also put together a home strength workout to get you started.

And finally, in case you weren’t taking notes during the show, I’m here for you!

Here are a few of the hot tips (we go over everything in much more detail in the podcast… this is just the quick version!)
1. Drink plenty of water: plain water!
2. Add foods that are high in aceylcholine- including eggs (yolks too!), salmon, dairy, poultry, meat, broccoli, peanut butter and dark chocolate.
3. Eat protein at each meal- helps to stabilize blood sugar levels.
4. Strength train, ideally 3-4 x per week.
5. Reduce stress.
6. Add cruciferous vegetables such as broccoli cauliflower, kale and cabbage to your diet (eat lots!)
