Physical Activity has Greater Impact on Body Composition in Postmenopausal Women - Ellen Dolgen

Physical Activity has Greater Impact on Body Composition in Postmenopausal Women

Regardless of your age, exercise is important! At the 2015 annual meeting of the North American Menopause Society (NAMS) a new study was presented which came out of the University of Massachusetts Amherst which shows that some types of physical activity have a greater impact on body composition in postmenopausal compared to premenopausal women.

The study also found that postmenopausal women, on average, have a significantly higher body mass index (BMI), waist circumference and percentage of body fat. That’s not new news to most of us!  It is a generally accepted fact that women tend to gain weight as they go through menopause.

The good news is that the study showed that postmenopausal women may have more control over their body composition than their premenopausal counterparts since their body composition is more impacted by light physical activity, such as casual walking or yard work.

So, ladies, take a friend, loved one, or your dog and go for a walk!
