  1. Hi everyone! I don't know if I selected the right forum for this but anyway... I'm 51 years old and on menopause for 4 years now... I've been struggling a lot with post-menopausal weight gaining. I'm gaining muscle (I can feel it) and I'm getting stronger but I don't seem to be able to lose the fat (mostly arms and belly). Any suggestions? anyone struggling with the same problem? Thanks

  2. I can completely relate to this. I'm 48 and began menopause 3 years ago and have had a difficult time losing weight as well. I've also noticed my stomach and arms have been problem areas where they never were in the past. I'm new to plant based eating and have done high protein (mostly animal based) low carb (clean) diets in the past which helped me lose the weight and lean out but it was not sustainable. I've only recently (past 3 months) cut out all meat, eggs and dairy and have been eating primarily WFPB but I'm having a hard time leaning out the way I did in the past. I'd also a

  3. I am post menopausal and I can completely relate to the difficulty in fat loss. I have been able to put on muscle with a high weight, low rep regimen. I agree with Anita as far as things that I have tried. The only thing which has really helped, but was difficult is logging of meals. But its a struggle and definitely becomes more difficult.

  6. So... we are doomed... 😱😢 I'll try to incorporate fasted cardio some mornings of the week, see how that goes... I have the feeling that my life is cooking and exercising... on top of my day job. I can't afford to lower my guard...

  8. Hello, I've been vegan for 35 years (I'm 53 now). I'm not exactly "new" to body building. I first started about 10 years ago, but then discontinued after 6 months. My reason for discontinuing was that I got testicle cancer, and lost a nut. To me, the correlation between the radical change in my diet, and the cancer was very scary. Although I'd been vegan for so many years, when I started body building, I also started eating TONS more peanut butter, tofu, beans, and anything else that was high in protein. I was also drinking several protein shakes throughout the day. I think my body was very un

  9. At age 20 I weighed about 128lbs and was 5'9", didn't eat a lot of meat but went vegan and dropped to 118lbs. I lived in the North of England till age 20 then emigrated to Canada, after sometime and eating what Canadians ate my regular weight became 138lbs. I started weight training and gained 10lbs in a month, and 148 was my weight for many years. I did do a bulk diet and gained 24lbs in about 4 months then lost it working construction. I'm now 68 and weigh 148lbs, as I got older the muscle shrunk a little but belly fat started to show. I did drop to 138lbs at one point and was proud of
