Certain proteins and enzymes are more active in post-menopausal women. These proteins correspond with fat storage. The fat stored on our hips and thighs, is relatively harmless. But the fat stored around the abdomen is more dangerous.When post-menopausal women put on more abdominal fat, they dramatically increase their risk for these health problems. post-menopausal women burned less fat than their pre-menopausal colleagues. These changes mean that their cells are not only storing more fat, but are also less willing to part with it.

Well then how in the heck do women jump start these post menopausal cells burn or stop storing so much fat? supplement with hormones? I started using topical hormones and tho slim noticed weight gain around my waist which I hate...hoping these hormones will help. They certainly have helped my sleep...much better!
