10 Symptoms you may experience when menopause starts

When you feel out of control, it’s a horrible feeling. Your body changes when you start and go through the menopause for lots of reasons. Hormone changes, a decline in muscle mass, bone density, a decline in oestrogen. It can lead to weight gain, especially around your middle, and changes in your body, that somehow just seems unfair. Especially if you’ve never experienced weight gain before, and you’ve usually felt in good shape.

So here’s 15 symptoms you may start to have or are experiencing now:

1.You become more emotional

2. You crave for chocolate

3. You start gaining weight

4. Mood swings

5. Insomnia

6. Memory blanks

7. Fear

8. Increased sweating

9. Fatigue

 10. Puffiness

If you’ve started gaining weight, and your confidence has taken a hit, know that you can get back to feeling good again, with adjustments to your fitness and nutrition. The simplest way to explain it is in 5 simple steps.

  • Do interval training
  • Do core work
  • Do resistance training
  • Eat more protein
  • Go walking

It’s never too late to feel good in your clothes and in yourself. Making adjustments and tweaking your plan as you go through the decades will keep you feeling great.


I hope this helps, Jessica X
