Health needs of women change throughout their lives. When menopause strikes, the battle to getting healthy on the inside and outside is often a huge challenge. One of the most common concerns is weight gain.
Menopausal women have coined different terms on the excess fats that accumulate in their body. A popular one is the menopot, a blend of menopause and pot. It is basically a large fat bulge in the belly “pot” area. Some would refer to this as the “muffin top”.
Experienced pharmacist and menopause expert Irene Hogan, who has worked with women for over 30 years, shares her wisdom about the dreaded menopot in an article published by IMPACT Magazine. IMPACT is Canada’s best health, fitness, and sports performance magazine.
Titled Winning the Battle: Why Staying Active Can Help Beat the Dreaded Menopot, Irene explains peri-menopause stage and how this largely affects a woman’s body and other activities. She exclaims emphatically why this is happening so that women can fully understand the change. Thus, women can find a more win-win solution to their battle of the bulge. Irene also discusses the impact of insulin resistance and stress.
Always a passionate advocate in supporting issues surrounding women’s health, Irene has won many awards for her exemplary service. Her Amazon bestselling book, Hot Chixs Hot Sex: How to Survive Menopause, is a must-have guide on how to live one’s best during peri-menopause and menopause.
