Dr. Morgan Nolte is a passionate board-certified clinical specialist in geriatric physical therapy. She’s the founder of Weight Loss for Health, an online course, community, and coaching program that helps women learn the science behind insulin resistance, weight loss, and habit change. Her mission is to help adults lose weight, keep it off, and prevent the conditions she treats in geriatric physical therapy by living a low insulin lifestyle. 

In this episode, we chat all about misconceptions around weight gain and menopause, how gut health changes as a woman goes through menopause, signs, and symptoms of insulin resistance, how macros affect insulin levels, and more!
