how to lose weight after menopause

all right, ladies! summer is in full swing and with it a plethora of sleeveless tops, shorts, skirts and summer dresses. if there’s any time of year to get it in gear and get into tip-top shape its summer. many of you know i had a total knee replacement on April 6th. the months that preceded surgery were sedentary, to say the least, so i definitely had my work cut out for me (again) to replace the layer of fat that moved in with lean muscle and shed a few pounds. is it easy to lose weight after menopause? no, it gets harder every year due to changing hormones and a slower metabolism. is it impossible to lose weight after menopause? absolutely not. so if we are determined to age with grace, strength, and beauty and want to lead an active and vibrant lifestyle after menopause then diet and nutrition are of utmost importance.

intermittent fasting is a key cornerstone to  opens in a new windowFASTer Way to Fat Loss. smoothies are a great way to break my fast. fresh berries, avocado, lemon, almond milk, and a scoop of collagen proteins start my day on the right foot. what is intermittent fasting you ask? here’s what FWTFL has to say:

Fasting turns your body into a fat burner.

Daily periods of fasting change your body at a cellular level. In addition, it helps to regulate hormones like insulin and HGH to make the fat stores in your body more accessible energy sources. The time given to your cells to repair during fasted periods allows cells to remove waste and function optimally. Intermittent fasting allows time for the body to utilize fat as its main source of energy, which means you not only lose weight, but you’ll see an improvement in your overall body composition. Intermittent fasting allows you to maintain muscle mass which speeds up your metabolic rate while helping you shed fat.

Intermittent Fasting can prevent disease and boost the immune system.

While the fat loss benefits are enough to convince most people to try intermittent fasting, one of the other “side effects” of regular fasting is that it boosts your immune system. Intermittent fasting allows our body to remove waste from our cells. This means that it can break down the waste that can build up over time, which can lead to a decrease in susceptibility to both cancer and Alzheimer’s.

There are several other benefits one might experience due to regular intermittent fasting: better sleep and more energy, greater mental clarity and the development of more neurons in the brain, along with better digestion and less inflammation. There truly is no downside to Intermittent Fasting and it has been a game-changer for all of us at the FASTer Way and our 100,000+ clients.

The FASTer Way to Fat Loss® has gotten so many people results largely due to the practice of Intermittent Fasting. Here’s what our client Amy had to say about her FASTer Way experience:

“I came into this program at the age of 51 with more than 60 pounds to lose to be at a healthy weight. Amanda encouraged me to go at my own pace with the exercises but to still push myself to my own limits. The change in eating habits was something I could do 100% and I did! The results were amazing. I lost 18 pounds in the six-week period, and I felt younger and more energetic than I have in a long time.  Repetition is how we establish habits, and these are good habits I want to make a permanent part of my lifestyle.”

There are literally thousands of testimonials just like Amy’s. Regular, everyday women and men who have made drastic lifestyle changes to not only shed unwanted fat but look and feel better than they’ve ever felt before.

headed to my first physical therapy session on April 8th. it’s a long process to rehabilitate your knee. that’s when you rely on the experts to reach your goals. and i am so very thankful for my physical therapist who pushed and encouraged me along the way. after my pt sessions ended i was given the green light to hit the gym again. 


weight training is so important as we age. we lose muscle at an alarming rate after the age of 50. but cardio is important too. two years ago i made an investment in myself and purchased a Peloton bike. what a lifesaver. cycling is the perfect exercise for me as it is low impact yet gets my heart rate going for a complete workout. many Peloton classes integrate weight training for your arms.

ladies, my fitness journey started from scratch in May. six weeks after my total knee surgery replacement. but i was up for the challenge because i know nothing is more important than my health.  i’m determined to do everything i can to stay fit and continue my journey on how to lose weight after menopause. it’s a key component to aging with strength, grace, and beauty. but for the past forty years, we’ve been told to cut calories and exercise more to lose weight. right?! wrong. while exercise is key to staying active our diet is the most important factor to aging well. if you want to lose belly fat over 60 there are a few things to consider besides cutting calories like balancing your macros. many of you might be wondering what macros are. they’re better known as carbohydrates, protein, and fat. we need all three in our diet. carbohydrates provide fuel, the energy for your body, and brain. it’s found in all plant foods, like grains, fruits, vegetables, and legumes, and also milk and yogurt. but i typically stay away from grains and get my carbs by eating fruit, veggies, and legumes. protein helps to build and repair your muscles, organs, skin, blood, and different chemicals, like hormones, in your body. it’s found in meat, poultry, fish, legumes, dairy, tofu, and eggs, and in smaller amounts in nuts, seeds, and whole grains. fat insulates and protects your bones and organs, acts as a backup fuel for energy, and helps in brain development.

healthy, unsaturated fats are found in olive oil, avocados, nuts, seeds, and fatty fish, like salmon, sardines, and mackerel. unhealthy saturated fats are found in high-fat beef, pork, butter, full-fat dairy, and processed foods, like cookies and donuts. these days i definitely stay away from processed foods as they are high in sugar. consuming too much sugar increases weight gain and leads to belly fat.

it’s not too late to lose weight after menopause with opens in a new windowFASTer Way to Fat Loss. the final call for the July 27th round is today! if you want to learn how to lose weight fast and keep it off for good then you need to change your lifestyle. that’s where opens in a new windowFASTer Way to Fat Loss comes in. this program will teach you how to balance your macros (fats, proteins, and carbs) because we need all three but in the proper proportions. this program also teaches you to lose weight fast the right way and keep it off.  opens in a new windowFaster Way to Fat Loss will transform your life with simple, effective, cutting edge and nutrition strategies. this is a lifestyle solution i discovered two years ago that changed how i think about eating. FWTFL taught me how to hone in on making smart food choices that burn fat increases energy, and utilizes strategies that help keep my healthy lifestyle going strong long after my initial FWTFL round ended. now it’s time to turn up the heat and shed a few pounds that i gained before and after my total knee replacement.

diets don’t work, ladies. they never have. but learning about macronutrients will equip you to make proper food choices that emphasize the value of whole foods rather than processed foods. balancing macros also helps us to understand where our calories come from and what impact they have on the body.  opens in a new windowFASTer Way to Fat Loss helps us make good, informed food choices and shows us how to lose weight after menopause.

    You’re looking good, Beth–hope you’re feeling as well as you look. I find myself monitoring what I eat through the day–and if I maybe overdo it at one meal, I’m cutting what I eat at the next. It’s all about balance. I’m fortunate that I’ve always liked good, healthy foods, but you’re so right that that expression isn’t just an expression–“we are what we eat” is very true.

    I live on the coast and in the summer you will see carts, pick up trucks, flat ends, selling local veggies and fruits. This year I have seen none at all. I guess everyone is staying home. I’ve missed the fresh because supermarket just can’t compare. the tomatoes. Cantaloupe watermelon just have zero flavor. Maybe the Fall will bring some back. You are looking great and so healthy.

    just finished reading a note from my sis in the UK, who has had two bouts of cancer this last year and two courses of radiation – one during Covid19 UK lockdown for seniors. She made herself do the stairs, laps around the house on top of normal chores. The diet part was easy as some pantry items are still not available (flour). Small meals and exercise and she looks fabulous at 75 with a gorgeous complexion and shiny hair. I also have a friend that is struggling with weight gain from antidepressants but also watches food intake and exercise. The key is motivation. Everyone finds their own path to weight loss, but it is essential to walk the path. Very few are ‘born that way.’ Staying on the path allows us to live our best lives possible as we age🎁

    Thank you for your “what you eat in the summer time” very helpful – I have been trying to lose a few pounds and find it a lot more difficult than in my younger years. I also follow your blog and thank you for the styles you show us – important to keep a good look no matter our age.

    Beth, I am really interested. I have usually done good ole South Beach to lose 5-8 pounds when I put on weight from holidays or vacation, etc. But it is not working for me anymore.
    My concern with this, is that there is rarely a full 6 week period that I have no trips, weddings, vacations etc. Even these days. (I am scheduled to go on a 4 day wine tasting in mid August, in the Shenandoah Valley.) Are things like that possible in the middle of a cycle? Thanks.

    Hi Beth, what about the recipe ideas you share on FWO? and the cocktails. They are always so yummy! And let’s not mention Kelly’s Kitchen. LOL. Do they fit into the FWTWL program? I am 61 also and find it sooo difficult to eat fruit and veggies all summer long. Gaining and losing is such a difficult balance.

    Wondering if you can help with finding the right bra. I’m bigger busted no huge though! I’d have been looking for a bra to lift and tuck in the sides, clothes just don’t look as good as I’d like with a bra that doesn’t do its job.
