What is the secret of weight loss?
Fundamentally, for a weight loss diet to be successful it has to develop and maintain a negative energy balance for an extended period of time. This is ultimately the principle of weight loss. This negative energy balance can be achieved through restricting calorie intake and increasing energy expenditure, ideally a combination of the two. That being said, dieting success is ultimately dependent upon the individual's ability to adhere to and sustain the diet for extended periods. This is most certainly easier said than done.
Which diet is best for me?
Research has unanimously concluded that any diet that achieves a sustained negative energy balance will be successful. The way in which you create and sustain this negative energy balance is considered the method. There are numerous diet methods available, too many to list. Each promises something unique and different, but all share the same principle, restricting energy over an extended period. So the decision of which diet is best ultimately boils down to the diet that best reflects your needs and personal preferences.
What are the personal preferences for mid-age women?
As woman body get older and menopause nears, body stops producing estrogen and collagen, which negatively impacts metabolic rate and ends up with decrease in muscle mass and increase in fat tissue, leading to unexpected weight gain.
This is a natural aging process and women should adjust their lifestyle accordingly to reduce aging and extra weight.
Which are the best programs in the market?
We have evaluated the best weight loss programs based on our opinion and evaluated them accordion to these 6 important points for aging women weight loss:
Program made specially for women’s changing physical needs
(perimonopause, menopause and post-menopause)

Offers to fill nutritional gaps with supplements
Promising realistic results

If all you want is short term weight loss then any of the above mentioned programs will likely work for you. They all work in the same way, with the same principle of creating and sustaining a negative energy balance.
Keto and Fasting are the most difficult in the long term because they are restrictive - you have to give up your favorite foods and meals. Let's be honest, it’s not possible in the long term, all of us want to enjoy life.
In my opinion the best solutions are WeightWatchers, ReverseHealth and Noom because these programs allow you to eat foods you love and it’s fundamentally very important for sustainable weight loss.
Which is the most suitable for women? It’s definitely ReverseHealth.
First of all this is the only program in the market which has been made with women in the center with a specific nutrient profile, supplement strategy and energy intake to support hormonal balance, mood, energy levels, collagen production, muscle tone and bone health, reflecting the physiological requirements of women at any age. So it is very specific.
Another important thing is that ReverseHealth has not invented any new systems like points, colors or any other marketing hack to let you use the app longer.
ReverseHealth explains complicated concepts in a very simple way and their goal is that you are able to delete their app and live a healthy life without any tech support. Last but not least - ReverseHealth is the cheapest option in the market, this is the only program you can buy below $20/month.
