Menopause is a wild ride of hormones that has severe effects on your physical and mental health. Moreover, all of those hormone imbalances could result in weight gain. Your metabolism slows down, and, consequently, you need fewer calories. If you are dealing with stubborn weight gain due to menopause, VIP Italia treatments could help you slim down during or after it.
What Causes Weight Gain During Menopause?
Menopause is associated with significant changes in the body’s composition and fat distribution. In general, estrogen can control energy balance, body fat distribution, and food intake. Additionally, estrogen promotes the accumulation of subcutaneous fat. The loss of estrogen with menopause is related to an increase in visceral fat.
Visceral fat builds up within the abdominal cavity – near several vital organs, including the liver, stomach, intestines, and can also develop in the arteries. In other words, this fat is a more dangerous type associated with heart disease, type 2 diabetes, and other significant health problems.
Many women report that they gained weight at or near the time of their menopause. The average weight gain is 2.2 ± 4.1 kg. And those who were previously overweight tend to gain even more weight throughout this phase. Aging is another factor that can cause weight gain in women, regardless of menopause.
However, it is different for every woman, and some will find that menopause affects them more profoundly than others.
How to Lose Weight During Menopause?
The importance of physical activity increases as the body ages. Therefore, it is essential for women during menopause to take steps to lose the weight gained during this transition. Vip Italia offers tips on ways to lose weight and maintain a stunning body shape.
Start with your eating habits
The benefits of eating healthy foods extend beyond your belly fat to your mental health. In particular, try to avoid eating processed food and focus on fiber instead. Processed food has had their fiber extracted, that means it has low nutritional value. It is high in concentrated calories such as added fat, sugar, salt, and refined grains.
When you eat processed food, your blood glucose jumps, your pancreas overreacts and releases too much insulin. Because of the extra insulin, your blood glucose ends up below normal, and it prevents fat from being releasing from fat cells. After that, your brain thinks that you are low on energy and makes you feel hungry, so processed food starts pushing you to eat more and burn fewer calories!
Learn to manage stress and get enough sleep
Studies have shown, stress is directly linked to gaining belly fat. If you’re stressed out, your brain starts releasing a particular hormone called “cortisol” that helps you cope with the stress. If you are under stress all the time, your cortisol level is always high, which causes fat from other parts of your body to move to your belly.
It happens due to the structure of belly-fat cells, which is slightly different from fat cells in other parts of your body. Furthermore, fat cells are more sensitive to adrenaline. In terms of physiology, belly fat is more “helpful” in coping with stress because fat cells release their stored energy more quickly.
You can learn to manage stress before it gets too severe. You can effectively manage stress in many different ways. Usually, the best stress management plan includes a mix of stress relievers that address stress physically and psychologically.
Better sleep, for instance, means better stress management. Have you ever noticed, when you’re well-rested, you’re less hungry? Getting quality sleep is an essential part of your weight regulation systems. Poor sleep messes with the hormones in your brain – leptin, and ghrelin, which control appetite. In this case, your appetite increases, and you are less likely to resist temptations and control the quantity and quality of your food.
Increase your physical activity
Fortunately, you can regulate the amount of belly fat stored in your body by increasing your physical activity. Physical activity can also help you to cope with stress.
Did you know that most of the energy you burn is just to keep your body going? Even people who exercise a lot still burn most of their calories just staying alive. In some measure, the amount of energy you need to stay alive depends on your body’s muscle to fat ratio.
Muscle cells burn more calories in normal activities than other cells do. So, If you put on muscle and start burning more calories without eating more, you’ll be burning your stored fat.
Menopausal weight gain can be stubborn; diet and exercise might not be enough. But VIP Italia electro stimulation technology will take your muscles to the gym, and the more you do the more you’ll see the results!
VIP Italia body shaping and contouring
One of the primary purposes of using Vip Italia’s Transion is to solve the overweight problem. The Transion deliberately acts on targeted muscles and tissues through micro-electrical impulses. It makes them contract and induces bending and twisting moments that can’t occur when doing physical activities. The technology imitates how the central nervous system causes muscles to contract. Naturally, your brain, through the central nervous system, sends electrical impulses to stimulate muscle movement. Electrical muscle stimulation artificially stimulates the muscles to contract. Transion causes the body to burn calories, similar to vigorous exercise activity, and reduces weight.
Vip Italia’s Isogei treatment is an effective way to put on more muscles. It is excellent for firming and toning the muscles, which can help not only with a slimmer, more athletic figure but also provides a noticeable lifting effect, helping your skin and body look young.
Since the lymphatic system serves as a central part of the immune system, lymphatic drainage helps treat many health problems and acts as a stress reliever. Vip Italia introduces Linfogei function that provides aesthetic lymphatic and venous drainage. It helps reduce swelling and puffiness with a visible appearance of cellulite reduction.
Lipo Line function
Lipo Line Function is a non-surgical procedure that can be performed instead of liposuction. It breaks apart fat deposits under 1 MHz ultrasound cavitation, thus reshapes the body contours. Lipo Line is perfect for those suffering from menopausal weight gain because it targets fat cells, and prevents cellulite progression.
Please, don’t take your health for granted. Take proper care of your body and mind, especially during menopause, when most women are very fragile and exhausted.
VIP Italia provides an effective and lasting solution to stubborn menopausal weight gain. It can target different body areas and work to reduce cellulite, provide body shaping, tone, and strengthen abdominal muscles. These treatments cause the body to burn calories, similar to vigorous exercise activity, making them perfect for helping fight the effects of menopause safely and easily.
