Reset Your Mind-Set!

This step allows you to work on the most important weapon you will need for success – your mind. This step addresses the psychological changes that menopausal women go through. There are four strategies involved with the mental reset – harness the power of desire, think of today as the beginning, know your triggers in order to reduce stress and set your sights and stay the course.

Reset Your Diet!

Resetting your diet starts with rebooting your body’s fat-burning machine. You will relearn how to eat nutrients in the right proportions to make your body a fat-burning machine. You have to stop the eating behaviors that have previously kept your body from burning fat and losing weight. Some of the things that will cause an increase in blood sugar leading to weight gain include skipped meals or delayed food intake, eating a large quantity of food at a meal, an increase in simple sugar intake, double carbohydrate intake in one serving, and lack of exercise. The key to resetting your diet is to raise your metabolism and avoid blood sugar spikes.

There are five ways to prevent blood sugar spikes including eat every two hours, keep your intake of foods with high simple sugar content low, avoid large portions and second helpings of food, avoid double carbs or large portions of single carbs in one meal, and exercise every day. You must eat on this program and eat often so that your body stays fueled and doesn’t go into starvation mode. Two very important directions are don’t skip any meals, and eat more than 1,000 calories each day. There are two weeks of menus contained in the book. Below is a sample menu that you might follow during one day on Menopause Reset!:

  • Breakfast: Cereal with fat-free, 1% or 2% milk; 1 piece of fruit
  • Morning snack: 1 banana
  • Lunch: Tuna, chicken or turkey on a fresh green salad with vinegar and oil, lemon juice or any low-fat or fat-free dressing plus 1 slice of bread of your choice
  • Whole wheat pretzels
  • Dinner: Broiled fish, brown rice and asparagus
EXERCISE

The exercise component of Menopause Reset! is the Reset Your Movement! Portion of the book. Dr. Harpaz speaks of the different things that can keep you gaining weight and focuses on the importance of using exercise to lose weight and keep it off permanently. Using the workout strategies in this book, you can keep your metabolism high throughout the day. The elements you will learn to properly execute are the mode, duration, frequency, time of day and type of exercise that you do. All of these elements can make a difference in the results you receive.

The key recommendation to avoid injury is to incorporate a training/rest workout system. For every four to six weeks of training, take one complete week off with no working out at all. When you start the new workout cycle after having a week of rest, you should start at 30 percent below the level your last training cycle ended. Some of the key elements to remember when exercising with the Menopause Reset! strategy are:

  • Exercise in the morning – Research shows that morning exercise can positively change your metabolic rate for the rest of the day
  • Make your cardio sessions last at least 30 to 45 minutes – Fat burning does not happen until after the first 15 to 20 minutes of exercise
  • Use the thermogenic effect – Studies show that there is an increase in the metabolic rate of five to 10 percent after exercise and can last for eight to 12 hours
  • Exercise every day – The more you do within reason, the better your results will be
CONCLUSION

Menopause Reset! offers some great remedies for those who are fighting the effects of menopause. The methods that are used by Dr. Harpaz have helped thousands of women not only lose weight but keep it off. You will eat healthier foods, eat more often and enjoy more physical activity with this program. It is not a diet because diets don’t work. Instead this program offers a way of life that will give you a healthy outcome.

So far, and I've been on the diet for a month, I've lost four pounds. I'm concerned that when I go back to teaching, (we're on summer break right now) I won't be able to eat the snacks on time as recommended by the book. I'm going to adjust my schedule and see if I can do it, though.

The only "con" listed is that it's for menopausal women? It's about time there was more information for us. Frankly, it should be listed as a "pro". I think the book is a breath of fresh air and makes a lot of sense for menopausal women.
