Picture this: You wake up, drink some coffee, do your daily workout and go about your day-to-day routine. Suddenly, you start noticing some stubborn belly fat that has never been there before. You haven't changed anything in your routine for years, so what could it be?
If this sounds familiar to you, you are most likely experiencing increased visceral fat. Visceral fat is the fat inside our abdomen and surrounds our internal organs. This is not the fat that we see! It is hidden under our skin and is extremely metabolically active and sensitive to inflammatory foods.
In this video, Dr. Mary Claire Haver explains how to control and reduce visceral fat using evidence-based research. To find out how you can get rid of this extra belly fat and measure your health, keep watching!

This is what happened to me. I have gained 35 lbs over the last 3 years, while I'm going through menopause. I'm dealing with weight gain in my abdomen, when I've always had a flat stomach. I'm now pre-diabetic, which is my biggest fear, because I've lost my grandmother and aunt to complications due to diabetes. This is ringing alarms. I know I have an excessive amount of visceral fat.

My biggest fear is losing my ability to work, having mobility and cognitive function. I just found your channel and I am so grateful to have discovered your videos. I went through menopause late (56). In 2020, my doctor put me on antidepressants for my stress; and I ended up gaining 70 lbs. Since then, I haven’t been able to lose the weight, especially in my stomach. I am trying to lower my cortisol and stress, so diets don’t work. Be careful of ALL medications after menopause. They impact your hormones.

Antidepressants are a common go-to by doctors who don’t understand menopause. You didn’t say you are under the care of a specialist and getting HRT but if you are worried about the symptoms and health issues that hormone deficiency causes you should see someone who is knowledgeable about HRT. I can tell you my firsthand experience is that HRT works! It takes a year or so to get the level right by having several consultations and communicating well. They start women very low dose and in my case I needed the top of the range dosage to feel 90% better. Don’t settle for low dose if it doesn’t resolve your symptoms.

Hello Clarice, I'm so sorry to hear about the many challenges that you have had to endure, that sounds really really tough! And I am sincerely sorry if my message is unwelcome but when I read your comment I felt I had to leave a note. I went through menopause when I was 40 and very isolated with no medical care so at that stage I did a lot of research. Amongst the things I came across was the concept of 'the HRT window' or estrogen window. You may want to look it up. I think the advice is that HRT is beneficial if taken in peri or within 10 years of going through menopause, but that the benefits may not be great and there are some risks if it's been more than ten years since menopause. Please feel free to ignore my comment if it isn't welcome, but just in case you have not been made aware of the reduced benefit and increased risks, I felt I had to say it. Menopause Taylor's video's here on youtube were one of my resources. I only just found Dr Haver's videos today. I wish you a happy and healthy life 💖

@@tashad2201 I've had positive results with it. I don't do hours of HIIT training, however. I have found a groove that works for me. I work out intensely for 15 to 30 minutes and I'm done. I do that about 3 to 4 times a week with some resistance training. (Look up Hotworx. It works well for me.) I'm too busy to do anything that is longer than that. Besides, I hate working out and I would just rather get it over with. I recently started on progesterone HRT and have noticed a significant difference in my ability to shed fat and I sleep better. The main thing I've noticed is to stay consistent and listen to my body when it comes to what I eat and my exercise routine. I also take walks a few times a week in the evening hours to reduce my stress levels. I hope this helps.

I now realize in 2005 @ 55, when I had unexplained, fast onset, end-life anxiety & depression, I was right to ask my (female) D.O. primary care physician if it could be due to perimenopause. She said no, I was too young since I was still menstruating, and I was started on Lexapro immediately with weekly psycho therapy for 3 years and annual psychiatrist checks for 7 years. Weaned off on my own during COVID due to near-aversion sexual response around my husband who I love dearly and who is extremely patient and kind. Now I’ve been lax and drifting for a year til my mom crashed and entered assisted living. This video hit my stream at the best time so I don’t end up like her re: unable to lift my arms, get up from a fall, or comb my own hair. My husband AND I say ❤ Thank you!!

So glad I found you! I went through menopause early, age 38, as did most women in my father's family. I stayed slender and athletic for many years, but mobility was affected when arthritis, scoliosis and osteoporosis took over, and I put on belly fat. Refused Premarin for ethical reasons, and it was the only game in town in those days. I'm 74 now with a host of ailments that can be linked to the menopausal condition. Will see an endocrinologist next month to see if the new body-identical estrogen might benefit me, even at this age. I have a calculated life expectancy of 100+, so have a great desire to feel good again in the many years ahead of me. The information you provide makes a huge difference in my new quest. BTW ... I make my own Greek yogurt -- no sugar, of course, but I do add homemade vanilla to sweeten the flavor. Who doesn't like vanilla?

I was always thin and muscular until I turned 55 and menopause ran over me with the belly fat train. I gained 20 lbs all around my stomach and back, and could not get it to come off no matter what foods I ate or eliminated, how much I fasted, exercised or tried everything known to man. Then I started using the progesterone my doctor gave me, and in four weeks the belly fat was off and my muscle tone is back. Hormones. That’s what did it! Hormones.

Messaging is so confusing these days, especially for young people. “Embrace your curves” has come to mean, it’s ok to be obese. They put HUGE morbidly obese woman on the covers of magazines and say “This is Beauty”. When celebrities lose weight, they are criticized for “selling out”. It’s ok to not be ok with being too heavy and seeking out info like this to help get back into balance and reduce the unhelpful fat. Tough love and facts are more helpful then “Your obesity is beautiful! Don’t change a thing!” talk. Telling people to “embrace their curves” has become as unhelpful as telling menopausal women “it’s just part of getting older. There’s nothing you can do”. There’s no upside to being fat when you are young. None. You CAN be truthful with someone without shattering their soul. THEY ALREADY KNOW ANYWAY. Validate their truth, not their denial. There’s no upside to gaining weight due to menopause. This “embrace your curves” phrase had good intentions 20 years ago but now, it sends the wrong message. How bout, “Love your body into better health” I almost feel rage when I say I’m trying to figure out how to lose weight and some well meaning man says, “No, I like a woman with curves”. WE, as women, need to stop conflating Curves with Fat. If we are taught that “Curves/Fat are wonderful” why would we be interested in being less curvy? We really need to be crystal clear on what we say and “Embrace your curves” has become convoluted.

Two years into menopause I had gained some 14 pounds and I was already 14 pounds above my normal weight (I ended up weighing 158.7 pounds). I ate fairly well, had considerably reduced my intake of wheat, corn, rice and added sugar, I don't drink sodas EVER, I exercised as usual, but still couldn't lose weight. In December last year I decided to cut out on all those foods 100%, I also stopped drinking wine and reduced my intake of dairy products to just 25 ml of milk per day, no cheese. In 3 days I lost 5.5 pounds whereas in a year I had lost only 3.3 pounds. In 8 months I lost 24 pounds but my body fat percentage indicated that I was still overweight although I weighed 134.4 pounds. In all those months I lost only 5% body fat. I forgot to tell you that in December I also started intermittent fasting 12/12. Two weeks ago I changed to 16/8 . In just one week I lost 2% of my body fat. I still have some 4% to lose to be at a normal percentage but I was amazed at the efficiency of intermittent fasting at getting rid of my excess body fast. Simply unbelievable.

Marivi Palimino. It sounds like your weight loss can be attributed to two things, the elimination of most dairy (dairy is high sodium and can cause fluid retention) and other inflammatory foods, plus the intermittant fasting. IF is a game-changer but the elimination of inflammatory foods also factors greatly in your weight loss. IF is just not as effective if we are still consuming foods that are inflammatory to our body.

Hi! Me too! Did you know you can slow down the KZbin videos? Look for the gear icon (my mom thinks it looks like a flower, it’s a bumpy circle) and touch it to open, then look for playback speed option. You can temporarily change the playback speed to 0.75 (more or less) to slow down her normal speech speed for just that viewing of the video (commercials will stay normal speed). The speed setting will default to normal speed (1x) for your next video, so you are only changing playback speed temporarily. I hope this helps!

I love following and watching your content and I'm trying to follow the Galveston diet as well. I started to have menopause symptoms when I was 38, so I am totally feeling the menopause struggles. Just wanted to thank you for sharing your knowledge with us. Keep doing what you're doing! Women are benefitting!

My visceral number was .76! Whewwww! I have more belly fat than I ever had and I'm in post menopause. I was so concerned since I've didn't have noticeable belly fat prior to menopause. However, when I lose weight, I lose belly fat first which I love but it's been so hard these days to burn it off. Now I know why. Thank you so much for this information doctor!

Hi, I found you a week ago via a KZbin video suggested to me -- maybe it was a short -- and you were talking about your book, and I bought it right then. It's arrived and is on my stationary bike console. KZbin has since showed me a few more during the week and now it has shown me this one and I stopped what I was doing and watched the whole thing. I'm on HRT , frustrated with weight gain and muscle loss. I'm a personal trainer, and have learned of some of this through conferences but not everything. Educationally and in the industry, we are not prepared enough to help people at this stage!! So I appreciate you for being the face of this. Your information is wonderful. I'm subscribing and I'll look into your site. First person I want to help is myself!!

So glad I came across your site. My weight has been increasing over the years. I recently purchased a scale that shows the visceral and subcutaneous fat. I will now look at decreasing those two instead of weight. As a person who never really had weight issues until menopause, the weight gain has been really hard. I haven't had any good success with losing weight. Thank you for sharing your knowledge.

I’m in the UK, 50 years old and could always lose weight in the past. I go to the gym 5 times a week and walk daily and always try to eat healthily. I am getting married on the 9 July and just can’t loose any weight which is especially around my stomach. I joined the Galveston diet 5 days ago and have lost 5 pounds! I eat in the 8 hours and although I’m a picky eater the recipes are delicious and I feel great!

First, I am so glad I came across your channel!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!Fatigue is very big and I already have a inflammatory process in my body with Ulcerative Colitis (IBD) that makes me very tired. I have worse depression and anxiety. I was diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis at 48 shy a month of 49, so I was probably already starting Peri menopause. Now in Peri and 54 years old going on 55 in a couple of months, I still have me period. I have very increased rage, breast tenderness, wired feeling a week before and can't sleep, heart palpitations and seen a cardiologist, stinky sweat, hot flashes, etc. I cannot take HRT because during a severe flare in my colitis, hospitalized and got a DVT blood clot and on blood thinners. So not hormone replacement. I really suffer with daily things because of it. I used to be a woman that ran to the gym, worked out all the time, and good health. I know to not have the energy. I do walk an hour a day with my dog. Thank God for my dog. It really does help, but it is not enough to fight fat in the waist that I did not have before.

You have been so helpful . I did my measurements after this video and I’m .83 and I’m just now 58 years old … but , I need to lose 10 lbs . I’m starting to eliminate dairy , I pretty much follow the anti-inflammatory diet naturally . The hard piece for me is strength training . I used to be a runner and cardio kept me fit until I got 52. Now I can’t seem to get back to where I want to be . I can do intermittent fasting easily for about 14 hours … is that enough ? I’m so close to being where I want to be ….. I live in Texas ( near Austin ) and I might just have to come see you !

Sudden deposition of visceral fat - (I wish I had 2 years leading up to a "normal" menopause!) Rather, an emergency hysterectomy changed my life, and I had no clue what was happening- keto wasn't working for weight loss exercise wasn't working, I was losing muscle, and a host of other menopausal symptoms... NOT ONE of the 18 doctors working on my "case" EVER SUGGESTED I might need to address hormonal issues....can't believe it! And SO, I am VERY GRATEFUL to have found you here - watch you a few times a week now - thank you....

I just absolutely love your show I love listening to your advice I feel that more OB/GYN‘s need to be informed into the menopause aspect I’m astounded at how many do not dive deeper into that part of their education it’s like they went to school they learned all they needed to learn 20-30yrs ago and that’s it. I think they should be made to go to current symposiums on their practice to learn new medical studies to help their patients. Thank God for you!!!!

Just wanted to say thank you so much for just wanting to help my old lady body.....I need your advice so badly. Your hard work and research is so apricated and I cant thank you enough. I did not understand why it has been so hard to keep the weight off. I'm 52 and not yet done with my cycles.....getting there though. I really can't afford professional advice, so for you to give so much help is a blessing for me. I'm starting today! I'm 52, 200lbs and very scared of being sick. I have never been 200lbs and I did not understand where the extra weight came from. I don't want to be 25 again and I'm happy with my age. I just want to be a healthy older lady.

Finally a conversation that affirms what a lot of us 50 yr old menopausal women are going through. Definitely can't eat or drink sugary stuff anymore, contributes to gastritis/ ibs/ sibo/gerd. The chronic dry mouth, starts effecting our gums and teeth . Pretty much like falling off a cliff.
