Menopause : When the ovaries stop egg production and periods cease prior to age 40, we consider it premature menopause. The treatment plan is similar at any age, but sometime symptoms are more abrupt and severe. Osteoporosis is a major concern as are sexual function and cardiovascular health.

Not necessarily: If this is unusual for you, you might want to see your physician for a checkup. There are many possible reasons for appetite loss, some more serious than others. It also depends on what other symptoms might be happening concurrently, medicines/drugs you're taking, etc.

This is NG: Eat foods that are nutrient dense (like meat, fish, poultry, eggs, cheese, low starch vegatables and water) avoid foods that are not nutrient dense (like starches and sugars, including fruit) nutrient dense foods will increase your basal metabolic rate. On the other hand, starches and sugars impair thyroid metabolism via affects on your liver (which helps activate thyroid hormone).

First and foremost: Please believe me, there are no shortcuts. Consult with your doctor, have an examination and make sure you are healthy enough to exercise. Concentrate on one goal at a time. First- breakfast every day, no excuses. Next, a bit of walking every day, even if it's just 5-10 mins. Increase every week or two by 5-10 mins. Then, cut down on the bedtime goodies, especially sweets and carbs. On your way!
