Movement, the Weight Gain Changer

Speaker:

Erich Nall, International Fitness Guru

    It’s very simple; As we age, we lose muscle mass. As we lose muscle mass, our metabolism slows. As our resting metabolic rate slows, we gain weight. Your metabolism is the process your body uses to make and burn energy from food. You rely on your metabolism to breathe, think, digest, circulate blood, keep warm in the cold, and stay cool in the heat. By age 50, our metabolism slows down by as much as 25% and a lot of mid-life weight gain happens because we become less active so how do we increase calorie burn to last as long as your workout? And how to we need to eat a variety of healthy foods that fill you up without filling you out?

Bone Loss and Menopause: Solutions for Building Stronger Bones

Speaker:

--

    It’s no secret that women are at a greater risk for osteoporosis than men, but many people aren’t aware of the connection between osteoporosis and menopause. Bone health is an important issue during perimenopause to menopause because as estrogen levels decline, so does calcium absorption in the body. In fact, by age 30, you have achieved your peak bone mass. After that, your body begins to lose bone—and the loss becomes more rapid as you approach menopause. In fact, bone loss 2 to 3 years before and after menopause is faster than at any other time in a woman’s life. So, how do you keep your bones strong while going through menopause? Our bone expert will discuss how to maintain estrogen levels as you age along with lifestyle habits to build strong bones as you age.
