    What we have is an ideal body comp0sition. We have an ideal waist-to-hip ratio. We have a waist circumference that is healthy or on the side that lends itself to greater health issues.

    Is it Carbs or Keto? The Confusion About What to Eat for Menopause Fitness

    It's a subscriber Q and A episode today. 

    Is the right kind of carbs – resistant carbs – and cycling them during the day, and during your week or keto? I've done Flipping 50 programs where you emphasized carbs. So why would you share a Keto program? It’s so different and seems opposite, I’m confused!

    Why do you want weights while you walk? That’s the real question. Are you trying to increase intensity? Because the purpose, I want to make clear, should not be to turn your walk into a strength training session.

    Should I add weights to my walk? I’ve been walking with ankle weights, one client told me. Here is my response to that.

    Should you hold hand weights while you walk?

    My answer: No.

    For the women in midlife who listen to this podcast and I’ve worked with for more than three and a half decades fitness is sometimes illusive. But success leaves signs. Four times in my life when I’ve made significant changes in my fitness level it was by doing LESS, not more.

    Beginning exercise…. Back in 1982. From walking a half mile to a mile to a mile and an half… to jogging parts …

    Why have a breakfast smoothie or post workout smoothie and not a meal?

    It’s fast. It’s simple. It’s full of both micronutrients and macronutrients you want (and you can adjust). It’s delicious.

  • 2 cups of greens (or other veggies)
  • 15 grams of fiber (or a boost in fiber according to your status)
  • low carb and low sugar
