Boosting your muscle in menopause is one of the smartest investments you’ll make.
The physiological/hormonal/brain changes you begin to experience in perimenopause are useful to understand. What actionable items women can you take (with food, fasting, training, supplementing) in perimenopause and menopause that make you more immune to the roller coaster ride menopause doesn’t have to be?
“Women are not little men” as my next guest explains [and aligns with my TEDx talk] We explain how women are uniquely different to help you better take care of yourself and navigate menopause and beyond.
