Kristen Beck Nutritionist - Nutrition Course for Perimenopause and Women 40+

Course Description

From your early 40s onwards, your natural hormone levels will start to fluctuate (perimenopause). Menopause is a natural process, but for 80% of women, the transition through perimenopause and menopause can be challenging (to say the least) and for some, debilitating. Nutrition, exercise and a healthy lifestyle are the cornerstones of self care during perimenopause and after menopause (with or without hormone replacement).

The Certificate of Nutrition for Perimenopause and Women 40+ is a comprehensive nutrition course that reviews, analyses and explains clearly the best nutrition, health and lifestyle science and strategies to:

  • Help you live longer
  • Optimise healthy body composition (maintain lean muscle mass, balance body fat with hormonal and healthy ageing considerations)
  • Prevent and manage unhealthy weight gain 
  • Recognise and support healthy female body shape expectations 
  • Reduce menopause related symptoms (hot flashes, sleep disturbances)
  • Reduce inflammatory triggers in the body (skin, appetite, stress and metabolic health)
  • Boost energy 
  • Optimise memory and brain function (gut health, nutritional balance and anti-inflammatory dietary dietary patterns) 
  • Support and boost your libido and sexual health (and hopefully make you feel like a sexy goddess)
  • Support healthy mood, emotional wellbeing and mental health 
  • Keep you feeling full / curb appetite and hunger
  • Make you feel your absolute best 

The Certificate of Nutrition for Perimenopause and Women 40+ is designed to be equally valuable to women for personal interest, as well as health, nutrition and fitness professionals wanting to optimise their clients health, fitness and body shape throughout perimenopause and beyond.
