Women tend to put on weight as they transition through menopause and this weight gain might intensify after menopausal symptoms like hot flushes diminish. This excess accumulation of fat can be difficult to reverse. Why does this weight gain occur and why is it so hard to shift? While some claim that it might have something to do with eating too much and not exercising enough, there are a number of hormones that are implicated.
