A woman in her mid-40s who is exercising and eating right asks if there’s anything she can do to “hypercharge” her metabolism so that she can lose weight more efficiently and quickly. And of course, we have some suggestions.

Trying to lose weight? Like me, were you lean and easily able to maintain a stable, healthy weight until menopause came around the corner and body slammed you? Have you restricted calories, increased your strength training, cut fat from your diet, yet seen no weight loss? Turns out, the above “solutions” don’t really work. But what does?
We are one-sixth of the way through 2014. This is about the time when many people give up on their New Year’s resolutions to move more, eat better, lose weight – the list goes on.

Why will we always look good “as soon as…?” And we all the know the joke about how men who are 30 pounds overweight look in the mirror and see a good-looking guy, while women who have 5 extra pounds see themselves as 30 pounds over! Except it’s not really a joke. Why do we love ourselves less when we weigh more?
