Good habits-during-menopause-can-help-alleviate-the-health-risks-related-to-fat-accumulation.aspx study conducted in the Faculty of Sport and Health Sciences at the University of Jyväskylä, Finland, revealed that menopausal transition increases women’s body fat, especially in the waist area. Therefore, to alleviate the health risks related to fat accumulation, women are recommended in mid-life to pay special attention to good lifestyle habits—physical activity and healthy diet—to help alleviate the health risks related to fat accumulation.

In the period of life prior to and after menopause, women tend to accumulate more fat in their bodies; the distribution of fat in the different regions of the body changes as well. Before menopause, women typically have more fat in their thigh and gluteal areas compared to men, but in midlife many women notice the increase of fat especially in their waist area. In addition to the total amount, the location of this adipose tissue also is meaningful to one’s overall health, especially because mid-region fat has been shown to increase the risk for cardiovascular disease and type 2 diabetes.
