Why the kilo creep?

Good Health Choices - - Be Informed -

Pos­si­ble rea­sons in­clude a drop in phys­i­cal ac­tiv­ity, a re­dis­tri­bu­tion of fat as hor­mone lev­els change, and an in­crease in ap­petite re­sult­ing from a fall in oe­stro­gen. This de­cline can also cause weight to shift from hips to ab­domen, giv­ing you an ‘ap­ple shape’ – wider in the mid­dle and slim around the hips, arms and legs. Emo­tional eat­ing may also play a part – that is, turn­ing to food in re­sponse to feel­ings of stress, bore­dom, frus­tra­tion, lone­li­ness or anger – all com­mon emo­tions at this time

of life.
