My Fellow Gen-X Lady!
Is transitioning to menopause causing you a lot of discomfort? Do you feel overwhelmed and unmotivated even though you know you’ve got to do something to improve your health? If you have tried all sorts of diets and fitness programs but nothing worked, I have good news for you.
I provide personalized nutrition and fitness coaching for women going through menopausal transitions and experiencing symptoms like fatigue, hot flashes, mood swings, an expanding waistline, cravings, blood sugar crashes, joint pain and more.
Welcome! I'm Louisa, and I'm a Midlife Wellness Coach
I help midlife women manage their peri- and post-menopausal symptoms through tailor-made nutrition, movement and lifestyle, so they can shrink their waistline, stabilize their blood sugar levels, increase their mobility and regain the vital energy and spark they once had!
Did you know?
8 out of 10 women experience peri-menopausal symptoms up to 10 years before their period stops.
Did you know?
1 in 10 women experience symptoms for up to 12 more years after their last cycle.
Did you know?
One of the most common “symptoms” of menopause is the accumulation of fat in the belly area. This fat is called “visceral fat” and surrounds organs in the abdominal cavity. It can be very hard to get rid of.
Did you know?
A woman with a Waist-to-Hip Ratio over 0.8 would have a higher risk of developing conditions such as heart disease, Type 2 diabetes and certain types of cancer.
It’s super important to tackle the belly fat so you don’t go on to develop serious illnesses down the road.
Menopause doesn’t just affect those between 45 and 55.
Midlife isn’t a sprint but a marathon. It’s too long to just “put up with it”!
Let’s make the best of our time to get healthy so we can enjoy the Second Act of our life!
That Stubborn Belly Fat
You’ve struggled with weight issues but nothing even comes close to the menopause belly. No matter how much you try to restrict your calories or how hard you work out, that stubborn belly fat just doesn’t seem to budge.
You’re a woman of substance and you know looks aren’t everything. You do want to better manage your weight and you’re concerned that an increasing waist-to-hip ratio may put you at a higher risk for chronic illnesses. These illnesses usually start with slightly “out-of-range” lab results, such as high fasting glucose level, LDL and triglycerides. But most likely, you’re not experiencing any symptoms except for fatigue, cravings and mid-afternoon slumps or “sugar crashes.” The reality is, having a protruding belly can be a sign of a number of diseases, including metabolic syndrome, non-alcoholic fatty liver disease, type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure and heart disease.
As if the stubborn belly fat wasn’t enough, you are also dealing with menopausal symptoms like brain fog, fatigue, lethargy, hot flashes, night sweats, acne, dry skin, hair loss, mood swings, irritability, insomnia, anxiety, depression… You probably are feeling out of breath just thinking about them.
You know you need to get a handle on your health because you want to enjoy your golden years with solid physical health.
Honest to God, you’ve tried everything under the sun but are feeling more and more frustrated. With work, family responsibilities, eldercare, and dealing with teenagers, young adults or grandkids — you just can’t find the time to take good care of your own health.
I get that. I’ve listened to hundreds of women express their frustrations just like you. And I feel frustrated too. Why? Because I have been there with a mysteriously expanded belly and was even diagnosed with prediabetes. But I managed to successfully shrunk my midlife belly, avoided most menopausal symptoms and even reversed my prediabetes. And I just hate to see another woman like you go through this tumultuous time without the help that you need.
I’m with you…
From the look of my photos, you may think, “Why, you’re too young to tell me what to do! Have you even gone through menopause?” The answer is “YES!” I struggled terribly and prematurely with peri-menopausal symptoms starting in my early 30s, suffered from fibroid tumors and ovarian cysts throughout my mid- to late-30s, and hit the menopause milestone at 46. Today, at 50, I feel healthier, fitter and more alive than ever.
Because of this amazing physical transformation, I became an Integrative Nutrition Health Coach to work with my fellow midlifers and help them get their energy, their health and their spark back!
My goal is to help you transform your health — and ultimately, your life — one bite at a time.
