Weight Gain in Menopause
As the body transitions into menopause, many things change. In fact, menopause may change your body shape significantly.

Hormone Replacement Therapy may contribute to weight gain and fat distribution changes. The metabolism also slows as the body ages. Activity often decreases as people age, so calories aren't burned up as easily.
