Menopause doesn’t have to suck!
I recently had the pleasure of working with an awesome group of ladies to see if reducing carbs and doing some hard training could help with how they handle the symptoms of menopause. The results have been published in this peer-reviewed case study
Menopause negatively impacts the quality of life of many women with a decrease in lean mass and an increase in adipose tissue leading to reduced physical ability, slower recovery from injury, poor energy management, and an overall reduction in metabolic health.
You can read the report for yourself, but I’ll tell you that there’s something about a Ketogenic diet and Functional Fitness that made some huge changes in these women’s lives!
They gained muscle, lost fat, had better energy and all sorts of other things in their lives got better.
Participants of the study reported improvements in several aspects of health and fitness, with a direct impact on quality of life. Some of these were:
- Blood Pressure
- Resting Heart Rate
- Body Measurements
The feedback from the participants was overwhelmingly positive about how the nutrition and fitness program improved their quality of life. The improvements seen in body composition and the progressive improvement demonstrated by the fitness benchmarks provide indicators that explain the connection between physical ability and an individual’s quality of life.
