    214: Eating Your Way Through Menopause to Not Gain Weight!

    Today my friend and repeat guest, Dr. Anna Cabeca, is on the show discussing how to eat during menopause! One of the biggest struggles for women is weight gain. Today we discuss the different plans that women can rotate through. You will also learn when to eat and what time to stop eating for optimal results. Check out her new book, Menupause: Five Unique Eating Plans to Break Through Your Weight Loss Plateau and Improve Mood, Sleep, and Hot Flashes.
     
    More about Dr. Anna Cebeca
     
    Dr. Anna Cabeca, DO, OBGYN, FACOG, is triple-board certified and a fellow of gynecology and obstetrics, integrative medicine, and anti-aging and regenerative medicine. She has special certifications in functional medicine, sexual health, and bioidentical hormone replacement therapy.
     
    For the past 20 years, she’s served 10,000+ women in her private practice— and millions more through her books, online videos and articles. 
     
    When her own health took a troubling turn during menopause, she sought out the wisdom of healers around the world. She learned that modern medicine and time-tested natural remedies are not at odds. Working together, they create indisputable results and true well being. Using delicious, healing foods and simple lifestyle changes, Dr. Anna reclaimed her health and life.
     
    Fueled by her belief that every woman deserves to be empowered and in control of their health and life, she developed the Keto-Green lifestyle, which has helped thousands of women opt out of menopause misery and experience a joyful transition to the next stage of their lives. With her methods, you, too, can breeze through menopause into your “second spring”, feeling the best you ever have.

Casey Hibbard ,

A wealth of functional medicine knowledge

Listening to Margaret‘s podcast feels like talking to a friend. Except that friend is an expert in functional medicine who has also healed her own illness. That dual perspective is invaluable to others facing chronic illness. She also covers just about anything that women may face health-wise. Highly recommended!

Peaxhes1 ,

Love it!

I love the wide variety of topics Margaret touches on. I love how she empowers women and shares real & raw information available to all. We did a Podcast together on Lyme and we were able to have an in depth dialogue about a topic that is very midunderstood! Really enjoyed doing a podcast together <3

WomanRising ,

Important. Necessary. Every Women Needs to Know

Such a great episode with Pamela Madsen Episode 84! Arousal...women rising into what is their birthright.
