Don't forget to warm up properly  before each of these workouts.

Example sprint run
2 rounds: 5x20-40 meter sprints w/full recovery in between each (2 minutes) and 4 minutes rest between sets. "Effort is key here," Holder says. "Progressively increase the amount of sprints and distance you do as you move through weeks." If you can find a hill to do this on, even better. You can also do this on a stationary bike, Holder says. "A good circuit is 8-second bike sprint, 12-second recovery for 20 minutes, 3x a week; this has been proven to promote fat loss and muscle gain," he adds.

(2) I am seriously considering dropping cardio, currently I work out very high intensity intervals, sprinting and slowing down on treadmill. Usually work out about 700 calories in 60 minutes (my daily net goal is 1500, eat 2200, burn 700 on cardio + lift weights as well). Taking your advice I am going to drop this to low-intensity walking 30-60mins. When you say “low-intensity” how low?
As in what speed and incline would you recommend? Or in terms of heart rate, how much of a target heart rate should I go on?
My 60%-80% HR range is 117-156. And usually if I walk at 3mph at 2% incline I burn ~490cal an hour. Is this considered “low intensity” walking?

  • Get enough rest. Sleep is more difficult during menopause because hormones cause sleep interruption, says Kyrillos. “Keep a routine sleep schedule and try to reduce stress.” And don’t substitute eating for sleeping.
  • Calm down. Stress changes hormones so we store more fat, says Kyrillos. Be aware that shifts in mood – including increased irritability -- can accompany menopause. Try not to get overwhelmed or derailed by emotions. “Think about doing meditation or yoga or building in some work-life balance so that these changes don’t throw you for a loop,” she said.
  • Switch up your snacks. “I used to eat lots of popcorn as a snack, and now I eat a very small amount of ice cream every night,” says van den Berg-Wolf. “I upped my fat intake but ate less overall. Now I use snacks I never tried before like almonds, full-fat cottage cheese, and small amounts of full-fat [hard] cheese."
  • Keep a food journal.  “Track to see if there are any changes that need to be made in your diet,” said Tewksbury. “If you can’t measure it, you can’t manage it.”
  • Be realistic. “It’s just harder to lose weight when you’re older, and you have to adjust back your portion sizes,” said  van den Berg-Wolf. “You aren’t necessarily going to be the weight you were when you were 20."
