At Texas Menopause we want to revolutionize the way you think about nutrition, exercise and weight loss. Our goal is to help you get rid of destructive beliefs and conventional thinking that might be preventing you from reaching your health goals.  Not only we want to discuss about nutrition and exercise, but we also want to show you how hormones interact with one another and how they affect your body.

There is a lot of myths out there regarding nutrition and weight loss. Some of those myths are:
