Does menopause lead to weight gain?

Myth: Menopause leads to weight gain
Fact: Menopause has nothing to do with your increasing weight. The fact is that the body of a woman goes through many changes between the age of 35 and 55 years. Although menopause may be one of the causes for weight gain for many women, it is not the same for all. There are a lot of hormonal changes during this time. Moreover, as you grow older, along with many alterations in the body shape, the body metabolism, too, changes. So, it is very important to pay attention to what you eat. Eating a lot and minimum physical activity may cause weight gain.


On an average, a human scalp has around 1,00,000 hair. Although you love your hair, and take a lot of care to avoid hair fall, you lose around 40 to 100 (approx.) hair strands in a day. And, the more you comb/brush, the more is the loss. An eyelash last for about 150 days.
