Sleep deprivation, women’s health, menopause & weight

In menopause we have many aspects of health and wellbeing issues, including weight gain.

We would not associate weight gain with sleep deprivation… think again.

Weight gain happens, particularly around our middle, despite our best efforts. Sleep is a critical factor in weight management, and insufficient or poor-quality sleep can lead to weight gain, especially around the abdominal area.

It is not what we eat. Internal states, biochemical influences and hormonal decline are factors. Women live over tiredness and commonly exhausted on a daily basis. And may be a long term issue. Due to the amount fitted into a day, work, home, shopping and children.

At Perimenopause and Menopause sleep deprivation happens from hot flushes and night sweats. Poor quality sleep, lighter sleep happens.  When we don't get enough rest, our body's hunger hormones become imbalanced, making us more prone to overeating and storing fat.
