As 2021 comes to a close, we use the final week of the year to replay the most downloaded episode of the year. This year’s episode comes from the ladies of Wise and Well.  In this episode, Maria Claps and Kristin Johnson of Wise and Well join me to talk about why midlife women need a different strategy than the dominant narrative for younger women.  We deep dive into what nutrition and fitness should be as we reach midlife.

Perimenopause, Menopause, and Postmenopause…what does it really all mean? When we as women hit midlife there are so many changes that happen hormonally.  However, exhaustion, weight gain, and overwhelm do not have to be a part of the midlife story.

Maria, an FDN practitioner, and Kristin, a Board-certified nutritionist, are plainspoken friends and practitioners who share a passion for women’s health, especially women’s health at midlife. As both are themselves menopausal, they’ve refined the art and science of thriving as a midlife woman based on both clinical and personal experience. They combine individualized nutrition and lifestyle changes tailored to midlife women’s needs with mindset coaching, lab testing, and hormone replacement therapy education to help women thrive so that they can stop or prevent their health from spinning out of control.
