Age is the culprit: Lots of studies have been done on women on and off hormones in their fifties. Everyone gains the same amount of weight. It is a tough age. Diet and exercise are your best bet.

Calories: The calorie content of hormones? No....estrogen and progesterone blood levels at optimal levels show multiple health benefits.
