Weight-loss struggles of women over 50

Why do so many women over 50 struggle with their weight, even on a low-carb diet?

Jacqueline Eberstein, RN, worked closely with the late and great Dr. Robert Atkins for three decades, and she has a lot of experience treating people with these issues.

On the 2015 low-carb cruise she gave a presentation on the topic and then we sat down to talk about it, with her sharing her best advice. Watch parts of the interview above. The full 16-minute interview is on the membership pages (free trial available):

    Dr E. I heard you speak at the Cape Town conference. I attended all 4 days and it was worth the trip, except, sadly I have not been able to access any information learnt at the conference.

    As our exchange rate in SA is not favourable at the moment , I can't afford your blog subscription. I am very disappointed that one has to to now pay for your blog and this latest life changing information.

    You are doing amazing work though, and lots of strength to you as you reach out to more people, but maybe a lot of folks will be put off of LCHF as it now seems to be coming just a money spinner.
    Lots of good wishes

    I really enjoyed this video, particularity from the view point of a middle aged woman. I understand when Ms. Eberstein talks about difficulties associated with age, it is slow and you do need patience and persistence...and frankly, a lot of help! For me it combined the older information with the new...very nice. It reminded me of doing Atkins with my dad in the early 70s. The food was so delicious and the book ... But he needed more help, sadly he died in the hospital in his 80s a few years ago...the cause of death was listed as diabetes though. I wish I could have helped him more. I did not understand why the video kept focusing in on Ms. Eberstein's midsection though...why? Thanks for posting the video, it helps me with the larger picture so to speak...
