Here are some tips on how to lose weight, especially after menopause:

  • Every 3 hours until 4 pm: Small portions healthy carbs
  • Limit sugar or unhealthy carbs to one serving per day
  • Limit alcohol to 7 drinks per week
  • Add exercise to be 20 minutes per day
  • Stop carbs by afternoon snack
