Why does the world need Menopause Weight Loss Coaches?
What is a Menopause Weight Loss Coach and how does this differ from your usual role ?
Weight gain, accompanied by an increased tendency for central fat distribution is common among women in their menopause transition and I was no exception to this too despite daily exercise and dieting. What women have done in the past to lose weight suddenly no longer works for them during menopause.
What I didn’t realise at the time of my own weight gain (and mainly breast and belly fat gain) was that the more abdominal and diaphragmatic fat that accumulated, the more that my fat cells were expanding. Much of this expansion was possibly due to oestrogen storage. I had no idea that fat cells generate their own local production of oestrogen and are now recognized as an important endocrine (hormonal) organ releasing an abundance of inflammatory markers. Did you?
As it is well known that post-menopause may result in several adverse metabolic consequences, including altered glucose function, dyslipidemia, hypertension, and cardiovascular disease and given that cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death in postmenopausal women, the importance of weight management in midlife cannot be overemphasized. Hence, I decided to do something about that.
I can’t wait to share this scientifically research based Menopause Weight Loss Coach Course with you.
You will come away with an understanding of the unique differences in women’s weight loss and easy to implement solutions for a client cohort who are desperately searching for help.
How this course will help you succeed
Through my many years of research, I have pulled together all of the pieces of the puzzle for you AND translated the research into practical, easy to implement solutions for your clients. Women on the MyMT™ programmes tell me they are so grateful that they can incorporate these solutions into their lifestyles like second nature…. which makes them sustainable over the long term.
Not only is every single strategy evidenced against women’s healthy ageing and weight loss lifestyle science, but it is also aligned with the cardiovascular and metabolic syndrome research specific to midlife women. You can be assured that the advice you are providing to your clients will set them up for the best health into their older years.
All of my solutions are already being proven by the thousands of women who have lost weight through the MyMT™ programmes over the past 7 years. Throughout the course I present numerous real life case studies to you. I guarantee that you will be able to relate their stories back to your clients.
Menopause weight gain is influenced by so many different physical, behavioural, societal and emotional factors. That’s why I take a holistic approach, bringing together the solutions for sleep, hot flushes, gut health/liver health, nutrition, exercise and more. Not only will you help your clients lose weight, but you will see them turn around their energy, sore joints, mood cardiovascular health and much more.
If you haven’t already, you will soon realise that behaviour change strategies are one of the most effective tools you can have in your toolbox. But midlife women are some of the hardest women to influence, because what they have done in the past isn’t working anymore. Throughout this course I will share my Masters research with you, which centered on successful behaviour change in menopausal women.
Wendy is such an amazing teacher. She is able to break down anything into simple-to-understand information that everyone can use. Her research, her vast experience with her own clients and the real-life examples she provides are pots of gold, literally.
Health and Endurance Coach
Meet your coach
Hi, I’m Dr Wendy Sweet (PhD), a women’s healthy ageing researcher and the founder of My Menopause Transformation. I am so excited to bring you this course, which is a culmination of all of the different aspects of my career.
For over 30 years I have been involved in New Zealand’s health and exercise industry. Although my original career was as an ICU nurse and I’m not practicing any more, I re-trained and pioneered the Personal Training industry in New Zealand.
Once I left this industry, I returned to education and not only was I lecturing in sport, exercise, nutrition and health physiology, but I was so interested in how to help midlife women change their lifestyle behavior, that I undertook my master’s studies in this area.
Then I went on to do my doctoral studies. My desire was to better understand how women perceived their ageing and the role of exercise in this during the menopause transition. I am so pleased that I did!
