Yes... you can lose weight
....enjoying each day to the fullest with energy and vitality
...feeling deprived or hungry.
DID YOU KNOW THAT WEIGHT GAIN ISN'T INEVITABLE AS YOU REACH THE AGE OF 50 AND BEYOND. YOU CAN REVERSE THE COURSE BY PAYING ATTENTION TO HEALTHY EATING HABITS.
Imagine spending days or even weeks depriving yourself and eating like a rabbit only to find you have gained weight.
Imagine doing all the weight loss tricks you used to do when you were younger only to find that these "fixes" do not work any more.
Imagine not knowing of the delicious, quick meals you can prepare for yourself and your family because you do not know how to make these meals.
The above seems like impossible situations that most women who are trying to lose weight struggle with.
BUT THAT SHOULD NOT STOP YOU FROM WANTING TO GET BACK INTO SHAPE & LOSE WEIGHT IF YOU DEAL WITH THESE NIGHTMARE THOUGHTS
How do I know which plan is best suited for me and will not be a waste of time?
How do I find recipes that are easy to follow and that the whole family will enjoy so I do not have to make separate meals?
How do I find the time to make not just tasty, but delicious, meals fast?
I'm here to tell you there is an easier way to achieve success.
3 URGENTLY COMPELLING REASONS WHY YOU SHOULD FOCUS ON A DIFFERENT WAY OF EATING TO LOSE WEIGHT RIGHT NOW!
You can maintain a healthy body weight in mid-life by eating the same and exercising as much as you did in your 30s and 40s.
Your metabolism slows as you age. In order to maintain a healthy weight after menopause, you need pay more attention to the food you are eating.
As you get older, your risk of cardiovascular disease increases.
This may be partly due to the postmenopausal tendency to put on weight around the abdomen. Body fat stored within the abdominal wall and around the internal organs (visceral fat) is a risk factor for the development of cardiovascular disease.
Energy and weight loss go hand-in-hand.
When your body is in tip top shape and your metabolism moving , you’re more likely to be more active in your daily tasks and have the mental stamina to avoid overindulging. As the pounds come off, your motivation to keep going will skyrocket your energy.
SO STOP LISTENING TO PEOPLE WHO TELL YOU THAT FOLLOWING A WEIGHT LOSS MEANS A LIFE OF DEPRIVATION. INSTEAD IT IS THE START OF FINDING YOU MORE ENERGY THAN YOU REALISE AND THAT YOU ARE NOT TOO OLD TO ACHIEVE.
5 MIND BLOCKS THAT MAY BE SABOTAGING YOUR SUCCESS IN LOSING WEIGHT
#1: Where do I start? I have tried several weight loss plans that did not work for me.
#2: Do I need to sign up to a 6 month plan? How much do they cost? How do I know that the plan is right for me?
#3: Where do I find the time? I do not have the ingredients to make the meals they suggest. The recipes are too hard to follow.
#4: I would rather be fat and happy than skinny and unhappy (my personal favourite)!
#5: I am hopeless, I do not know if I am able to follow the plan. It feels too hard. I will always be fat and not lucky like my friends who seem to eat what they like and not put on any weight.
Let me share a secret...I felt exactly the same, the same insecurities above when I first realised that I was obese, yes obese. After the birth of my second child, I lost all interest in my health and what I was eating. I had let myself go and muttered all the excuses above when I finally recognised that I was not just overweight but obese. BUT here is the difference. I had a system, one that I created for myself. A system that got my metabolism moving, that saw me lose weight and find the energy to do the things that I never thought would be possible again after the age of 50.
The photo one the left, the one where I am exploding at the seams, was the photo that had me in tears. But I needed to see this photo in order to realise how overweight I had become. The photo on the right is me NOW. Not only minus 25kg (55lb) but also with more energy and vitality, with beautiful shiny hair and smooth skin as an added bonus I never thought possible.
3 COMPELLING REASONS TO TRUST ME WHEN I TELL YOU HOW TO LOSE WEIGHT IN THE MENOPAUSE YEARS AND BEYOND.
I am Julie
I was not born with a speedy metabolism and able to eat what I like without consequences. Throughout my life I would gain weight if I ever over indulged. At the age of 40 I found my weight gain slowly increasing, despite not indulging and actually eating a healthy diet (or what I thought was healthy!)
I wanted to follow a plan that I could adhere to. I did not want to be hungry and miserable or feel deprived in any way.
I did not have a lot of time to make my family's meals let alone try and follow a new routine for myself. I had to create an eating program that the whole family would enjoy and benefit from.
IT IS MY PRIVILATE AND HONOUR TO HELP YOU LOSE WEIGHT USING THE SAME SYTEM THAT I USED
Life right now seems desperate - You can continue down the path of low energy and self loathing (yes I have been there)
You can continue to be a victim of your own self-sabotage, doubting yourself and choosing to settle for less and not feeling good about yourself...
THIS IS YOU: Be the envy of all your friends, I can assure you that they will want to know your secret!
THIS IS YOU: No more foggy brain, no more restless nights, no more short tempers.
THIS IS YOU: You are in your favourite clothes store and you are able to choose with ease.

THIS IS YOU: You will gain confidence in knowing what to eat when out in a restaurant without the guilt.
You can get the results you WANT & DESERVE by following the exact strategy and recipes I have used to lose weight and keep it off and achieve your own weight loss success using my tested program.

You are one step away from starting your own weight loss journey following my step-by-step, proven process for identifying what foods work with your body and what does not in order to achieve a leaner, happier you in just 7 days.
Part 1: What to expect in the program
Weight loss and weight maintenance. At around the age of 35 you start to lose lean body mass while at the same time increasing body fat, particularly in the abdominal area. Fat is stored around your middle as opposed to lower tummy, hips and thighs. Higher levels of the wrong hormones at menopauase and for many years afterwards, further increasing fat stores. In this introduction, I explore other benefits of following the 7-Day Weight Loss Guide For Women In The Menopause & Beyond such as improved energy, healthy hair and skin, improved digestion, cardiovascular health, blood sugar control, improved mood and disease management.
I also address the barriers that are preventing you from achieving weight loss in your menopause years and beyond.
Part 2: How your hormones play a part in your weight loss journey
Are you tired of your doctor assuming that you do not have the willpower to stop eating or are lazy? What they are not telling you is how your hormones are sabotaging your weight loss. Learning about your body as you enter the menopause years and beyond can be critical to addressing the underlying cause of your weight gain, helping you to restore your health and allow a healthy diet and exercise to achieve the results are looking for and your hormones work the way they should.
Midlife, women and weight gain are not synonymous.
Perhaps you struggled with maintaining a healthy weight all your life. Or perhaps it became a problem once you reached 45. As you get older, it can be a constant struggle to stay lean.
In this plan you will discover what I have learned as a Nurse and Naturopath (BHSc) and as a woman going through menopause dealing with weight and hormone issues.
Discover what women have to do to lose weight and keep it off in the menopause years and beyond.

I want to help you gain a clearer understanding of your body’s hormones and how these hormones work for or against you in your efforts to maintain a healthy body weight as well as regain energy and vitality.
Part 3: Action steps
Your mindset is the most important tool that you have at your disposal this very moment.
Are you trapped in a body you no longer recognise?
Do you wish you had more energy in the day to accomplish all that you want and need to accomplish?
Are you exhausted and irritable?
These are all common complaints during the menopause created from Hormonal Disharmony.
My Top 10 Action Steps are steps that are easily laid out for you to follow that you must acknowledge and work through to help you body during this time of transition.
By reading these action steps, taking mental notes where needed, you will discover that you can do this. Everything you have wanted in within your reach. I will show you how easy it is. Once you have the foundations, you are set for life.
