Re: HELP!!!!!!!

agnus: Welcome to the boards, you're not alone. It's a crazy time of life. Your hormones are changing and that's why they call it the Change of Life! See if you can get your hormones tested and see if you might benefit from some progesterone cream.
When your ovaries stop producing the progesterone your adrenal glands pick up the production and you end up with adrenal fatigue. You start gaining weight because the fat is holding on to the estrogen that your body needs during this process.

Having too much estrogen in your body is not good. It's called Estrogen Dominance.
There's an herb called passion flower (I think) that is good to help you from gaining the fat in the belly.

Are you on any meds? Sometimes they can cause you to gain weight. Moderate exercise and drinking alot of water will help some too. If you can eliminate the sugars and white foods from your diet do that. I know it's hard - easier said than done. Hang in there and I'm sure you'll hear from many others in the same boat.
