Get Rid of Menopausal Weight Gain!
Foods that are contributing to weight gain and what to have instead.
It’s usually no surprise that two of the main food culprits of weight gain are sugar and white flour. That probably amounts to a lot of the foods and drinks that most people consume on a daily basis. Those choices raise blood sugar levels and over time that can lead to Insulin Resistance, which can then lead to the body storing more fat and therefore weight gain.
There are other sweet options that do not raise blood sugar levels and are healthier choices. Those are the sweeteners: stevia, monk fruit, erythritol, xylitol and allulose. As far as flour goes there are low carb flours from nuts and seeds like: almond flour, coconut flour and flax meal, that make excellent baked goods and do not raise blood sugar levels.
A clear plan of how to eat real food, including desserts that you LOVE, in a healthy sustainable way.
Using the Trim Healthy Mama Lifestyle Plan you can enjoy a large variety of foods from all the food groups, that consist of eating protein with either healthy carbs or with healthy fats, for the best opportunity to lose excess weight. At times you can have protein with carbs and fats together. With this plan you will be eating mostly whole foods, not processed foods, for optimal health benefits and nutrition. Using the above mentioned sweeteners and flours you can enjoy a wide variety of new favorite, delicious treats and desserts. This is clearly a plan to LOVE!!
