Weight loss is without a doubt one of the most difficult and fascinating topics to discuss. Not least because there is the pervasive illusion that losing weight is as simple as calorie in/calorie out or increase exercise/decrease dinner size. Unfortunately, if you’re a woman, 40 years old or older, this just isn’t the case.
Chances are if you are in the above mentioned female demographic and googling weight loss, it’s because you woke up one day and discovered that seemingly overnight 10 or more pounds had inexplicably packed itself around your midsection, hips, and thighs. Worse yet, try as you might to employ tried and true tactics to budge it, it’s just not going anywhere.
