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

Over the past year I've acquired a spare tire around my midriff; I haven't had a period in one year; my hot flashes are not bad and I'm sleeping fine. What can I do about this extra fat around my waist?
Thank You.

HI, Maggie -- I would suggest you read Diana Schwarzbein's book, The Schwarzbein Principle. Dr. Schwarzbein addresses exactly what you're concerned about -- the spare tire (or insulin meter, according to her). I think you'll find it really helpful. Beast of luck --

Be well,
