Ask Dr. Denise Lamothe Q&A's
Name: Lane

I am 57 and I weigh about 115 lbs. I have a belly (looks like 4 months pregnant) and 2 rolls right under my bra and around my waist. At my age can excerize get rid of that or am I doomed because of that's what happens to women my age?

Answer: are not doomed. Exercise can certainly help. Also you may want to make some dietary modifications. Weight around the middle is known as your "insulin meter" and Diana Schwarzbein's book, The Schwarzbein Principle, zeros in on that. You can check out her book or go to her website for more info. Best of luck...

Be well,
