(I didn't know which category was the best to post this topic in!)
I'm 48 and as yet have no symptoms but a friend lately has told me how she recently gained a stone (14lbs) in a few months because of Peri-Menopause. She maintains her diet has not changed in any way. She was probably slightly underweight before so 14lbs isn't very noticeable on her but I know personally I wouldn't want to gain at all. (I've been at my happy goal range now for close to 5 years). This friend isn't someone I'm close enough to for me to ask more about her eating habits. Personally I would have loved to have heard exactly what she ate in a day to guage what her calorie intake was like. (most people around me don't know that I'm really into counting calories and that's the way I prefer it). I'd like to think her gain has only come because she might be less active or eating a bit more than she had been previously.
I would love feedback on those who are going through or have been through menopause on your experiences.
I'm wondering will counting calories and exercising as I do now be enough to keep me maintaining my weight throughout the change of life.
Thanks in advance
