Our bodies change in many ways as we get older, and for many women entering menopause, this can be difficult. While it’s still very possible to live a healthy, happy life well into your golden years, it’s important to know how the body’s processes change during menopause.

Today, we’ll explain what mind dumping is and why it’s so valuable for clearer thinking.

The human brain is extraordinarily powerful, but it can only hold so much information at once.

Being able to clear your mind is essential for focus and productivity, but it can be easier said than done.

How to Properly Gauge Body Transformation Progress

Transforming your life by transforming your nutrition, exercise, and mindset is a difficult undertaking. Yet, it is an incredibly rewarding process. Learning how to properly gauge body transformation progress is key in determining whether your lifestyle changes are working for you.

When creating your SMART goals for body transformation, measuring progress is crucial. You must keep track of your progress to stay motivated and find areas for improvement.

Unfortunately, many people gauge progress all wrong.

When entering your body transformation, it’s natural to think about the numbers on the scale. However, measuring progress with the scale will not show you the whole picture.

The Impact of Trace Minerals and Micro-Nutrients on Muscle Development or Protein Synthesis on Pre- and Post-Menopausal Women
trace minerals

We have learned since our childhood about the importance of getting our “vitamins and minerals”. While we then often learn the importance of vitamin c for immune function and the roles of other vitamins, we typically do not hear as much about how trace minerals and micro-nutrients impact our bodies.

For all of us, but especially for pre and post-menopausal women, trace minerals and micronutrients are essential. Without getting the minerals you need, you will not be able to enjoy a successful body transformation after 48.

Minerals and trace elements are involved in hundreds of biological processes, but why are they so important for muscle development?

Today, we’ll share everything you need to know about trace minerals and micro-nutrients. We’ll also go over ways to get more in your diet.

How to Stay Consistent with Goals

Setting goals is essential for helping us live happy, healthy, and fulfilling lives.

But creating your goals is just the beginning. Once you set them, goals can be hard to stick with.

At first, losing 10lbs or getting up at 6 am every day sounds like great goals. But when the alarm clock goes off or the time for the gym comes, suddenly goals can seem so far away and hard to stick to.

The inability to stay consistent with goals is why 80% of people fail their New Year’s Resolutions.

5 Immune-Boosting Foods
joc-academy-5 immune-boosting foods

Immune-boosting foods are key to focus on year-round. Your immune system is essential for staying healthy. It’s what recognizes illness or infection and swiftly responds to get rid of the intruder. Many times, we are not even aware of our immune system’s work, because it kills off bacteria and viruses before we feel any symptoms. Even when we do get sick, the symptoms we experience are the immune system’s defenses against the illness, and what ultimately help us feel better.

In conjunction with lifestyle modification, strengthening your immune system is one of the best ways to prevent illness and infection. Boosting your immune system does not require some magic solution, it starts at the grocery store.

Garlic adds a distinct flavor to foods, but it’s also valuable for your immune system. It contains allicin, a strong antibiotic that’s released when the cloves are crushed. For many years, it’s been used as an antibacterial and antifungal agent. Packed with calcium, potassium, and sulfuric compounds, it’s been touted as a powerful immunity-boosting food. Garlic is most beneficial for the immune system in its raw, uncooked form.

Setting Yourself Up To Win
Setting Yourself Up To Win With Joseph Fitness

Setting yourself up to win takes intention. Successful people adopt patterns of behavior that help them realize their dreams.

No matter what your goal is, you need structure and consistency to reach it.

One of the biggest mistakes people make when starting their body transformation journey is failing to create daily routines.

Setting yourself up for success is not about huge changes, it is about consistent daily habits. What you do day in and day out will determine the heights you can reach.

What Time Is the Right Time of Day to Train?

One of the biggest challenges to working out is finding the time.

While you may not always have time for a two-hour workout, the reality is that we all have the time to fit in the recommended 30 minutes per day (or 150 minutes per week).

The real issue is not that we don’t have time, it’s that we don’t always want to work out during the time we have. Too often, we leave exercising for after work, and then when the time comes many other things demand our attention and tap our energy by the evening.

To succeed with your health and fitness goals, you have to find a time that you can consistently workout, which begs the question: what time is the right time of day to train?

Calorie Calculator

JOC Superwomen body transformations are incredibly impressive, but we get one common question. “Why am I not losing weight?” Many women that set out on their body transformation journey are looking to shed fat, tone muscle, and become overall happier and healthier people. It can be incredibly frustrating to stick closely to healthy eating and calorie tracking but not see the results you’re looking for. This is why we developed our own calorie calculator.

According to the common rhetoric, burning 500 more calories than you consume each day should result in 1lb of fat loss per week. Here’s the problem, that “conventional wisdom” isn’t accurate. You must consider the adaptive nature of metabolism, that your metabolism slows as you eat less.

We get it, it’s important to shed the extra weight and tone up, but weight alone won’t transform your body. It’s critical that you understand body composition and type when embarking on your body transformation journey.

Not to be the bearer of bad news, but if you base your fitness goals on weight alone, you’re setting up yourself for failure. But don’t worry! Focusing on body composition is the key to a successful body transformation and realistic end results.

Understanding Rep Counts at JOC

When it comes to understanding and determining rep counts, the following phrase is very common:

“I’ll just follow a plan that tells me exactly what to do so I don’t have to know much about the why of it all.”

Does that phrase ever come into your mind when you enter a fitness program? You just go along with the program on an app and hope it helps you develop the shape that you’re looking for. In the following weeks, as you obediently complete your workouts, you either feel like nothing’s really happening or like it’s far too much work, all the time and you’re excruciatingly sore for days on end.

The chances are, you’re not understanding where your current level of fitness is and how you should be approaching your rep counts to help you accomplish a lean, strong body at a pace that makes you feel like you’re on fire – in good way!

Your body transformation is a powerful physical and mental journey that you can take to get the body you deserve, but most women make a big mistake. A lot of women enter their body transformation with far too much emphasis on the scale.

We get it, it’s important to shed the extra weight and tone up, but weight alone won’t transform your body. It’s critical that you understand body composition and type when embarking on your body transformation journey.

Estrogen Boosting Foods

Estrogen is a hormone that is essential for overall functioning in both men and women. The three types of estrogen, estrone, estradiol, and estriol all play different roles in our bodily functions. They help to regulate our journey through puberty, fertility, and menopause. This vital hormone reduces the risk of colon cancer and heart disease, while also helping us regulate body temperature, muscle maintenance, blood flow, collagen, and more. We’re going to cover why estrogen boosting foods are so critical during and after menopause.

It’s no secret that our bodies go through immense changes during menopause, and one change involves producing less estrogen. Menopause is characterized by very low levels of estrogen, which can lead to many mental and physical issues including anxiety and low mood. While there are medical interventions that may be prescribed, ultimately losing estrogen at menopause is a natural process.

However, nutrition is a safe and effective way to get some more estrogen to help you during your body transformation journey. Today we’ll discuss why to consider eating estrogen boosting foods and which foods are best.

Using Metacognition to Transform Habits

Your body transformation is a personal journey to better health and confidence. But there’s often one thing that creates many obstacles to a successful body transformation: habits.

That’s right, even the smallest habits can make or break your journey. Habits are seemingly small, but they propel us through the day. What you eat for breakfast, when you eat, how you prepare for the day, those are all habits, and your body transformation journey is all about incorporating new positive habits.

But old habits are incredibly hard to break. It’s why so many people struggle to stop smoking or eating dessert after every meal. Habits are so challenging to transform because they become automatic. Once you’ve created a habit, you no longer need to choose to engage in it each time.

That’s where the power of metacognition comes into play, metacognition is the key totransforming habits.

How Self-Image Impacts Body Transformation

Your body transformation is a chance for you to become the Superwoman you are from the inside out. Mature women have unparalleled experience, wisdom, and compassion for others, but they often lack this same compassion for themselves. Lack of self-compassion and poor self-image impacts body transformation success. It hinders body transformation, making the entire process feel like an uphill battle.

It’s understandable to struggle with your changing appearance and energy that accompany menopause, and many women wonder “is body transformation possible?”

With a positive self-image and self-compassion, body transformation is not only possible, it is empowering and freeing.

But body transformation motivation all starts with self-image. Here’s how self-image impacts body transformation.

The Value of Low Glycemic Index Foods After 48

Nutrition is always important for taking care of our bodies, but it becomes even more paramount as we enter our older years.

Calorie Requirements for the Different Types of Body Characteristics

Understanding your body requirements is an invaluable tool for developing fitness. Your daily body requirements include vitamins, minerals, protein and fiber. Vitamins and minerals are the elements that are necessary for chemical reactions that unlock energy or enable growth. Although your body can store some vitamins, a regular daily intake is important because some of the most vital vitamins, B and C, are water-soluble, so are quickly flushed out of the system. In this handout we talk about what factors can affect the number of calories your body requires.

How Intention Setting & Expressing Gratitude Facilitate Your Body Transformation Journey

Holistic health and wellness boil down to a lot more than exercise and nutrition. While taking care of our bodies from the outside is essential, the process truly begins inside.

Goals are the topic in body transformation, and most of us understand the value of setting goals. However, goals are only part of the equation. To experience our full potential and live life to the fullest, we must set intentions and express gratitude. Intention setting and expressing gratitude are key components of your journey to mental, physical, and emotional health.

Setting and measuring goals is important, but it’s only part of moving the needle forward toward what you want. To make these goals even more powerful, you must set intentions to them. Intentions align with your goals, and they are the intangible driving force that guides your actions. You cannot exactly “measure” or calculate intentions like goals, you feel them instead. Effective intention setting evokes a powerful emotion that empowers your mind and heart to drive toward your goals.

Metabolism after 48 – How Muscle Impacts Metabolism

Have you ever felt that the struggle of getting and feeling fit increases with age? If you’re like most women, you notice some changes as you face the difficult time of menopause. It can seem like no matter what you do and how hard you try, you can’t be the Superwoman you are meant to be. Menopause is a transformational time, where you will battle the many physical and psychological changes. Many women in their 40s and beyond will struggle to stay strong and keep the fat off their waist, hips, and thighs. Even women that exercise and try their very best to eat right can fail to see the results they deserve. The truth is that you may be destroying your metabolism. Here’s what you need to know about having a higher metabolism after 48.

When you eat food, your body has to turn it into energy to use, and it does this through the process of metabolism. Your body combines oxygen with the calories in your food to release the energy it needs to do every single activity from breathing to adjusting hormones, and repairing cells. The energy you need for your basic functions is pretty consistent, and it’s called your basal metabolic rate. It’s a natural process that your body is excellent at adjusting to your unique body. Body size, sex, and age are all cited as factors that determine metabolism, but the common theme is that people with more muscle mass and less body fat burn calories faster and have a higher metabolism. A higher metabolism sounds great! So what’s the problem?

While your metabolism is fairly consistent, there are some monumental changes that occur at certain times. Yep, you guessed it, menopause dramatically affects your metabolism. As you go through menopause, your estrogen levels drop. There is a widespread myth that women tend to have lower metabolic rates because estrogen slows down metabolism… but this could not be further from the truth! Lower estrogen levels are associated with reducing the metabolic rate, and menopause is one culprit for dropping estrogen levels. Menopause is also marked by muscle mass loss, and difficulty building and keeping muscle. The less muscle you have, the slower your metabolism will be, and the harder it will be for you to lose and keep off excess fat. The same high-calorie meal you used to eat and burn off quickly will now be turned into fat and stored. Lastly, the speed at which you use up energy during exercise declines. The same workout you did in your college days will not burn as many calories for you after menopause.

Once menopause hits, it can put a damper on your fitness goals and passion, but it doesn’t have to. Yes, our bodies change as we age, but we can adjust our mindset, nutrition, and exercise to keep us as healthy and happy as possible. There’s no magic pill, but there are ways to put in a little sweat equity and improve your metabolism at any age. Some ways to better your metabolism after 48 include:

5 Ways to Lose Weight Easily & Healthy During Menopause

Menopause can cloud your self-confidence, take a toll on your energy, and negatively impact your body image. But it doesn’t have to! You can smoothly navigate this new chapter of your life by changing up your lifestyle, fitness, and nutrition routines. Here are some tips to help you stay healthy, lose weight during menopause, and achieve your definition of the ideal body

Your metabolism changes drastically when you approach and transition through menopause. That’s what traditionally makes it so challenging for women who want to maintain or lose weight. Fortunately, finding your resting metabolic rate can help!

Resting metabolic rate, or RMR, can help you recalibrate your nutrition plan. This number identifies the rate in which your body burns energy while at rest—completing basic functions like respiration and circulation. In short, it’s the bare minimum energy, or calories, your body needs to operate while maintaining your current weight.

You can find handy RMR calculators online which use your height, weight, age, and gender to estimate your RMR. You can also use the Harris and Benedict equation to calculate RMR for women:

3 Easy Remedies for Hot Flashes

Hot flashes—an uncomfortable and unwelcome symptom of menopause that manifests in more than two-thirds of mature women. This sudden surge of intense heat can leave you sweaty, irritated, and wishing you had a portable walk-in fridge! While many women accept them as part of the natural process of menopause, you don’t have to just sit back and suffer, Superwoman. You can take charge of your health to lessen the negative symptoms of menopause—including hot flashes.

Hot flashes bring about an uncomfortable feeling of heat that bubbles uncontrollably up your arms, neck, and face. When your body experiences a rapid increase in temperature, it immediately instructs its systems to initiate a cool-down sequence. This causes your body to break out in redness and an unpleasant sweat. Not only are hot flashes marked by this rapid temperature swing, but they also bring on a spike in heart rate. For some women, this means a wave of anxiety that will ruin even the most cheerful day.

Hot flashes can happen at any time of the day or night. They can interrupt a meeting at work or a nice dinner out. “Night sweats” can even wake you up from a restful sleep. Since hot flashes can intrude upon your life for an average of seven to ten years, it’s important that you understand some of the main causes. And, more importantly, learn easy, all-natural remedies you can use to stop those pesky hot flashes in their tracks!

Although doctors do not fully understand what triggers a hot flash, there are certain things you can avoid to reduce the severity. We encourage all mature women to invest in their health and explore the 3 core principles of The JOC Method: Fitness, Nutrition, and Mindfulness.

How to Preserve Lean Muscle When You’re on a Diet

Losing weight while maintaining lean muscle is on every woman’s goal list, right? In our lifetime, most of us will try an average of 162 diets! We tap into fad eating trends (that never last!) and test out trendy workout plans (that don’t seem to work)—only to wind up back at square one.

How can we put an end to this ineffective cycle and finally shed those stubborn lbs for the best women’s total body transformation? While “weight loss” is the ultimate goal for many women transitioning through menopause, in reality, we are looking to lose fat without sacrificing precious toned muscle.

Ladies, it’s time to hit the pause button on crash or extreme diets and get to the bottom of how our bodies manage fat. With this knowledge, you can finally achieve a true body transformation without dieting.

The body was designed to survive, and it loves to have a back-up plan in place for every system. Our bodies also love to plan ahead. That’s why it is so good at storing fat—just in case times get rough and you don’t have enough food to eat. Holding onto that extra fat is the last resort for nutrition.

How Staying Active During Menopause Can Boost Your Confidence

Let’s face it, getting older isn’t easy. Neither is staying active during menopause. Your body experiences new physical changes. Your mind can feel clouded with thoughts of “what we used to be.” Everyday tasks can feel more difficult and less enjoyable.

Of course, this can all take its toll on your self-worth! But does menopause automatically mean everything must feel like it’s spinning out of control? NO! With the right exercise routine, you can regain control of your life and wake up feeling amazingly strong every morning.

We understand how challenging it can be to reach your goals during and post-menopause. Unbalanced hormones make it an especially exhausting period of life, and many menopausal women sometimes feel like they just want to throw in the towel on exercise. Plus, the low feelings of self-worth make it difficult to stay motivated to do anything, let alone stay focused on a fitness routine.

It doesn’t have to be this way, Superwoman! Studies show that staying active during menopause can actually boost your confidence for good. Here’s why.

How a pH Balanced Diet Can Help You Maintain Your Metabolism Through Your Menopausal Years

It’s no secret that our metabolism starts to slow as we age. While this phenomenon impacts both genders, women bear the brunt of it. Especially as your metabolism transitions through menopause.

As your muscle tone starts to wane during menopause, metabolism gradually slows too. You may feel as though you just don’t have the strength you used to—but it doesn’t have to be this way, ladies!

Our muscles power our movements, but they are also the furnace feeding our energy levels. A higher percentage of lean muscle mass in the body translates to a higher metabolism. This keeps your energy levels high, your body running hot, and burning more calories all day long. However, during menopause, muscle deterioration is the main reason for a slower metabolism.

Regular strength training can help increase muscle mass during menopause but there is another factor many women don’t consider—your nutrition—especially one that is pH balanced.
