The Simple Way to Lose Weight for Women Over 50

Feb 26, 2024

If you're a woman over 50 and feeling exhausted, frustrated, and confused about how to balance your hormones and lose weight, then this article is for you.

In this article, we will explore a simple approach to intermittent fasting that can help you achieve your weight loss goals.

The Changing Landscape of Nutrition

Over the years, the world of nutrition and weight loss has seen many changes. Old beliefs and practices have been debunked, and new approaches have emerged. From the debunking of the "calories in, calories out" myth to the revamping of the food pyramid, it's clear that our understanding of nutrition is constantly evolving.

The Journey to Intermittent Fasting

After being diagnosed as pre-diabetic in my early 50s, I realized that my previous approach to nutrition wasn't working. Despite being a health and fitness coach and following all the conventional wisdom, I still became pre-diabetic. This led me to dig deeper and find a practical approach to taking care of myself.

I discovered intermittent fasting and decided to give it a try. However, like many others, I initially made some mistakes. I followed all the buzzwords and limited my fasting window, but nothing seemed to work. It wasn't until I simplified my approach that I started seeing results.

The Power of a 20-Hour Clean Fast

In my course, I teach a 20-hour clean fast. This approach allows you to balance your hunger hormones and achieve weight loss. By fasting for 20 hours and keeping your fast clean, you can regulate insulin, tap into stored glycogen, and regulate your hunger cues.

Simplifying Your Approach to Intermittent Fasting

Intermittent fasting doesn't have to be complicated. In fact, it should be one of the simplest things you can incorporate into your life. Instead of worrying about breaking your fast or what to do during your fasting window, just focus on fasting. Trust your body and give it the time and space it needs to turn inward and feast on itself.

When in Doubt, Fast it Out

In times of doubt or uncertainty, remember the mantra "When in doubt, fast it out." Instead of turning to food as a quick fix or soother, give yourself permission to consciously go through your day without allowing food to interrupt your fasting. Fasting is a reliable and consistent tool that can help you achieve your goals.

The Three Pillars: Fast Long, Feast Well, Train Smart

In my course, we focus on three pillars: fasting long, feasting well, and training smart. Fasting long enough allows you to see results and gives your body the opportunity to do its magic. Feasting well means finding the foods that work for you and making conscious decisions about what you eat. It's about simplicity and finding your go-to meals. Finally, training smart means finding a form of exercise that you enjoy and look forward to. Whether it's running, walking, or playing a sport, find what lights your fire and gets your body moving.

The Importance of Simplifying

Losing weight and taking care of ourselves shouldn't be complicated, exhausting, or frustrating. It should be a choice we make for ourselves in a beautifully selfish way. We need to figure out what works for us and make it simple. Forget about all the noise and nonsense on the internet. Trust your body and simplify your approach to intermittent fasting.


If you're a woman over 50 struggling with weight loss and hormonal balance, intermittent fasting can be a game-changer. By simplifying your approach and focusing on fasting long, feasting well, and training smart, you can achieve your weight loss goals and live a happy, healthy life.

Remember, it's about trusting your body and giving it the time and space it needs to do its magic. So, when in doubt, fast it out. Embrace the simplicity of intermittent fasting and watch as your body transforms.
