Are you a woman over 40 seeking effective and sustainable ways to shed those extra pounds?

Look no further! In this article, we'll delve into expert-backed strategies and practical tips tailored to help you achieve successful weight loss, enhance your well-being, and feel confident at any age. 

Hi, I am Alane, a holistic nutritionist with 30+ years of experience in holistic health, metabolism, wellness, and weight loss for women over 40. Is it even possible? Absolutely! 

Do I understand your frustration and desire to find the fastest way to lose weight, balance your hormones, feel, and look younger? And fit into those skinny jeans in the back of your closet in a box? Absolutely. I gained 30 pounds when I hit menopause - I was not a happy camper. I have easily lost weight before menopause, but my nutrition, metabolism, and eating plan need to be different now.  

So I worked harder and devised a weight loss diet plan that has worked great for thousands of other women and me. I do not struggle to get the weight off women over 40 or any age

My friend, You need a weight loss for women after 40 plan, and I have it - metabolic mastery is a different method for weight loss and maintenance strategies for women. This plan works, and here is why.

1) It includes comprehensive metabolic blood work to determine if you have metabolic blocks. If you are not getting the weight loss results you want, something is most likely being missed regarding your metabolism. We will find it! Most clients over 40 tell me they have never been to someone who runs metabolic labs like ours. They say they have always suspected something was wrong with their metabolism, but no one would listen or find it.

For example, your thyroid must work perfectly; if it is borderline, it is slow, and losing weight after 40 will be more difficult. A strategic weight loss program must include bloodwork for TSH, Free t3, Free T4, and thyroid ab.

Let me teach you a little about thyroid levels - TSH needs to be around 1.0 if you are looking for the fastest way to lose weight for women. The functional medicine range for TSH is 1.0-2.0, but the traditional medical range is under 4.5. So what happens if your TSH is 3.0? It is not a conventional hypothyroid, but it is a functional hypothyroid and does need support. And Free T3 is all about optimal metabolic health; it must test around a 3.2. But again, the traditional range is around 2.0, which is relatively low. 

And lastly, we run thyroid antibodies to ensure there isn't an autoimmune issue against the thyroid. If there is, we tell you to easily tweak your diet to help your thyroid work better so you can lose weight fast and keep it off, even if you are over 40.

So, as you can see, the thyroid gland is much more than a superficial TSH level.

Also included in the metabolic mastery bloodwork are fat storage markers. These will tell you if eating fat like coconut is ok for you, inflammation markers to tell you if an anti-inflammatory diet is best, vitamin deficiency markers for breaking down fat, and much more.

2) The 2nd strategy is that metabolic mastery includes saliva hormone and cortisol testing to tell you is it even possible to lose weight. 

So often, I have women talk to me about their hormones being low in the blood, and they start using hormones and gain even more weight. Saliva is the only way to show if hormones are stuck in your fat cells. 

Another scenario can occur when saliva hormones are low; it can cause cortisol to be high. High cortisol can cause hunger, weight gain, anxiety, and trouble sleeping, slowing your metabolism.

3) Metabolic mastery teaches easy tips on eating to burn fat without dieting or exercising. I do not believe in dieting - diets do not work - my metabolic weight loss program works because it teaches you all about food - the essential dos and don'ts, how much protein, carbs, and fat to eat, and why.

I write a personalized protocol just for you!

I love to tell the story of a 52 yr old busy mom that came to see me locally. She sat down and said; Doctor, so so and so sent me in to see you - Alane, you seem friendly, but no one has been able to get the weight off me, and I don't think you can either. 

I said, wanna bet? - we shook, and she said ok - well, let's say she followed my metabolic weight loss program to a T and lost 20 pounds in 8 weeks. And the weight has stayed off. Why? 

Testing showed her hormones were high in fat cells, so we fixed it, and she needed to eliminate one type of food that food intolerance testing indicated was slowing down her metabolism; she did and had weight loss success, even after 40. 

4) The testing I run also looks at gluten intolerance; Why? Simple, I have seen more women experience autoimmune symptoms as we age. A gluten-free diet helps calm things down when there is an autoimmunity.

The benefits of gluten-free eating include sleeping better, thinking better, digesting better, and losing weight easier. If a gluten-free diet is needed, it is essential to know - you never know what your health future will bring, and a gluten-free diet can benefit those that need it.

So what is the fastest way to lose weight for women over 40 and of all ages? The answer is my metabolic mastery program. 

It has helped me drop 30 pounds in 12 weeks while I was going through menopause, and it has helped thousands of other women like you to lose weight and keep it off.
