 The Fearless FEMME Method

 

Many women after their forties find themselves struggling in more than one way. They are tired of constantly trying new products, new diets, and new solutions for their problems. 

In addition to that, too many of us have developed years of a negative relationship with food and with our bodies, resulting in our distrust of ourselves and our reliance on external validations.

I myself struggled with body image issues most of my life.

And not to sound pessimistic, but as we near our fifties, there are other factors in the mix: the potential symptoms of perimenopause. I've also struggled with those for years.

As women approach menopause, many hormones responsible for muscle synthesis, mood balance, fat distribution, and other metabolic regulations are unstable and unpredictable. These hormonal fluctuations are responsible for many of the symptoms experienced during perimenopause, along with the process of aging itself.

No wonder so many women are struggling. It can be overwhelming, confusing, disenchanting.

But I'm here to tell you: there is a way.

And it is not through magical pills, perfectly designed meal plans, or customized exercise programs.

The way out is digging in.

There is no easy way to overcome your challenges if you are not willing to face them.

I'm not talking about the number on the scale. I'm talking about why and how you came to believe that a number on a scale is important.

These types of beliefs are holding you (and millions of others)  back from discovering the remarkable person you are and have become through these decades.

But I'm here to support you through this journey. 

Keep reading to learn how.

FACE YOUR CHALLENGES

Each person has a different set of challenges. They can be physiological (ex: having high cholesterol levels), they can be related to lifestyle (ex: being sedentary), or emotional (ex: feeling unhappy about your body), among many others.

It is important to identify your unique challenges and to assess how much they impact your health and overall well-being.

EAT ENOUGH NOURISHING FOODS

The number one mistake I see women over 40 doing is restricting their foods and calories. This can have a negative impact on their metabolism and muscle mass as well as their emotional well-being.

I'm here to support women in getting out of the diet cycle. Women at this stage need more protein to help build muscle, more phytonutrients to counteract oxidation and inflammation, and constant intake of nutrient-dense foods to regulate blood sugar and support mood. It's not about the exclusion of foods, but the proper inclusion of them.

MOVE YOUR BODY  

 After the age of 40, women will experience changes in their bodies due to aging and hormonal fluctuations. Some of these changes occur in relation to increased fat storage (mostly around the abdominal area), decreased overall muscle mass and strength, and a progressive decrease in bone density.

Together we will come up with a practical and realistic movement plan that works for your specific needs.

MANAGE YOUR SYMPTOMS 

Many symptoms can be related to perimenopause or from life stressors like lack of sleep, weight gain, low energy, and others. These can be happening simultaneously and affect your overall quality of life.

In the FEMME Program, each symptom is treated uniquely on the premise that a single strategy likely works for more than one symptom, such as stress management working for anxiety and lack of sleep, since they are often interrelated.

The final component of the FEMME method involves empowering your mind so you can have the right mindset and foundation to embark on this journey and specific strategies for you to work on during the entire process.

 You will learn how to attune with yourself and identify triggers, emotional hurdles and other obstacles created by your mind that prevent you from moving forward.

The FEMME program is based upon principles of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), mindfulness, self-compassion, growth mindset, and positive psychology.
