In this post I’m going to tackle the exercise part of the equation. Know this, however – there is no one-size-fits-all eating plan.

How to Fight Postmenopausal Weight Gain with Exercise

The better exercise solution that will prevent postmenopausal weight gain or help you lose postmenopausal weight is not intuitive. You’re probably used to thinking the harder you work the more results you’re going to get.
