Life can be REALLY unfair. Especially if you are a woman over 40 desperate to get rid of unwanted fat. Not only does it pile up in all of the wrong places -- like your belly, hips, thighs and butt -- but it gets stuck, becoming almost impossible to get rid of.

And no matter how little you eat or how much you exercise none of it seems to make an OUNCE of difference.
Finally, thanks to recent discoveries, there is at last something you can do.

But first, you need to understand what's REALLY going on.

The #1 Cause of Frustrating Female Fat Over Forty.

When it comes to frustrating fat gain for females over 40 it's all about estrogen dominance.

Estrogen -- along with its counter-balancing hormone progesterone -- are the reproductive hormones that allow women to be fertile and bear children. Normally they're balanced by your brain's hormone control central -- the hypothalamus. But the hypothalamus often gets confused. Estrogen goes UP, progesterone goes DOWN, and you become estrogen dominant.

When you're estrogen dominant, it not only commands your body to deposit fat SPECIFICALLY on your thighs, hips and butt, it also orders your fat cells to grow AND multiply!

Worse, because estrogen blocks your thyroid while progesterone stimulates it, too much estrogen and not enough progesterone is like taking your foot off your metabolic gas pedal AND then slamming on the brakes at the same time! You can counteract this estrogen-induced metabolic slowdown.

Let's look at the 3 reasons for estrogen dominance

Reason #1 for Estrogen Dominance.

The primary cause of estrogen dominance -- is aging.
As you age past 30, you ovulate fewer and fewer months of the year, until ovulation disappears completely by, on average, age 52.

That's important, because whenever a woman ovulates, progesterone surges, counter-acting the estrogen surge that happens prior to ovulation, so fat-making and fat-burning stays in balance.
