What Works: Better Weight Health for Women

What Works: Better Weight Health for Women

As women, we have unique physiological demands that can challenge our weight health efforts throughout our lives. Additionally, as individuals, each of us can experience struggles based on our genetics, our health, any health treatments, and our environment and choices. 

No wonder many generic weight health recommendations we hear about do not actually work for us. 

So, where to start? 

  1. A truly personalized approach is key. Too often, it isn’t that what you are doing isn’t working or suitable for your body, but rather your body has other needs that keep your current choices from translating into wins. Thus, evaluating your body and its needs is the best first step. Noting that not everyone will have access to a practitioner who can do this in collaboration with them, we invite you to check out The Better Nutrition Program, who can help you identify and make your better choices.

  2. Digestive health: Your protein, strength training, nutrients from better food, and supplement choices can not do what you want them to: lose weight, build muscle, and support optimal energy IF your digestion is not working better. The natural shift of hormones, medications, stress, alcohol and many other factors will impact your digestion. And when it is unhappy, your digestion will send you signals - it shuts things down, bloats up, irritates the skin, gives you headaches, and can zap all your energy. Thus, paying attention to and addressing these signals is a priority throughout your journey to better weight health.

  3. Better timing: When you stop taking in calories is as important - if not more - as when you start taking them in. As is how much time goes between getting in calories, water and moving your body. Turn your body into a race car to get better weight health benefits by adjusting the timing of your choices and experience more wins. This may mean that your intermittent fasting isn’t better if you start calories after noon but consume them until 8 pm or 9 pm. It may also mean you will want to pit stop for water and food more regularly (or group your snacks throughout the afternoon into one snack) to achieve better results.
