There is a myth that women are unable to lose weight post menopause but that is not true. The key is to increase exercise. Eat less and start moving more. While you need to cut calories, increasing your regular exercise will help you sustain the weight loss, prevent any further weight gain, and result in favorable changes to the composition of your body. Generally, it is recommended that postmenopausal women commit to 30 minutes of moderate-intensity exercise on most days every week.
