New Research: Your belly-fat in post-menopause … and why you shouldn’t just blame your hormones.

Have you ever wondered why so many women put on belly-fat as they move through menopause into post-menopause? This so confused me at the time.

Hi Everyone – how exciting – a new royal baby this week, and the start of a new life for the beautiful Royal couple, The Sussexes. It’s such an exciting and nervous time when there is a new baby. And how little we knew when many of us had our own children. Research wasn’t available […]

Thank you Palmerston North & how wonderful to meet Debb who told me, “I was lost, but now I’m back.”

The conference room at the stadium was a bit cooler than we intended but maybe this was because the event manager saw the sign, ‘Welcome to your Masterclass on Menopause’ – maybe he thought he was doing us all a favour turning down the heat a bit. But it didn’t matter because the room was full […]

When your office window at Auckland University of Technology has a view of the Sky Tower, it serves to keep you motivated to reach for the sky in all that you want to achieve in your life.

Lose your stubborn menopause belly-fat and you’ll reduce your hot flushes too. Women on the MyMT™ 12 week Transform Me programme call it ‘life-changing’ – as I did too.

If you are as frustrated by your mid-life belly fat and continual hot flushes as I was, then do you know that the two are related? The more overweight you are, the more hot flushes you get.It’s all because the extra oestrogen that is stored in fat cells (especially around your breast and belly) cause […]

VIDEO: Meet Wendy Sweet from MyMT & discover why menopause is the time for lifestyle change, not endless supplements and medications.

Most women joining me on the MyMT programmes are as frustrated as I felt too – sick of spending huge amounts of money on various supplements, hormone creams, weight loss diets, Dr’s visits, blood tests, Personal Trainers, HRT, other Health Specialists and whatever else we can think of.
