Welcome to HCM.
Weight gain is one of the common problems encountered in the menopausal age.
This is due to decreased basal metabolic rate
(BMR) occurring because of the hormonal
changes in the body.
So you should do exercises which will boost your BMR and help you burn your calories faster.
Cardio exercises like walking, jogging, aerobics
, dancing will help bring your BMR up and also release endorphins which will help elevate your mood.
I hope I have answered your query satisfactorily.
