NAPLES, Fla., March 16, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- BistroMD, the number one physician-designed, chef-prepared meal delivery company in the United States, is releasing a series of exclusive videos where the company's founding physician, Caroline J. Cederquist, M.D., educates women on how to cope with menopause and weight gain.
"With these videos, I'm trying to make it easier for women to understand that weight gain during menopause is not their fault," says Dr. Cederquist.
"Menopause can be difficult to deal with, and many women can be taken off-guard by the dramatic changes that are taking place in their bodies, especially when it comes to weight gain."
One condition causes more women to gain weight during menopause than anything else -- a condition called insulin resistance.
As a certified bariatric physician -- a doctor that specializes exclusively in the field of weight management -- Dr. Cederquist says insulin resistance is one of the most common conditions she deals with on a day-to-day basis, both with her patients at her medical practice, and in menopausal women.
"What most women don't realize is that menopause itself causes insulin resistance," says Dr. Cederquist.
"During menopause, the estrogen receptivity levels in your brain change. This causes insulin resistance to develop, which causes more abdominal weight gain in menopausal women."
Insulin resistance makes it difficult for your body to burn excess stored fat, but the condition can be treated by eating the right kind of diet.
BistroMD offers the right balance of nutrients in their meals for menopausal women who are struggling with insulin resistance, and who need to get rid of abdominal fat.
Each meal is balanced with the proper amount of protein, carbohydrates and fat to help retrain your metabolism to burn excess stored fat, and to help your body deal with insulin resistance.
"With the meals I have developed for BistroMD for the menopause metabolism, women can eat satisfying meals, but they can also put the right fuel in their bodies to help them cope with insulin resistance and the dramatic effects of menopause," says Dr. Cederquist.
