Midlife Metabolic Equation Course

The go-to program for women over 40 who are ready to create sustainable habits for optimal metabolic and hormone health in just 90 days!

Doors are closing soon. Join today!

Hi! I'm Paula Carper, Registered Dietitian, Women’s Health Strategist, and creator of Midlife Metabolic Equation.

Here’s what I’ve learned after working with thousands of women for nearly 3 decades:

We have far more knowledge and options today than our mothers and grandmothers did…

We don’t need to stay stuck in the cycle of overwhelm and overcommitment…

We don’t have to fade away into the second half of our lives…

We can thrive beyond 40.

BUT if you’re like many of my students & clients when they first work with me, you might not believe that yet.

Maybe this sounds more familiar:

You wake up in the morning, rarely well rested because you constantly struggle with poor sleep.

You move throughout the day with stress, anxiety, and overwhelm – constantly overcommitted and never prioritizing yourself.

You obsess over food, fads, diets, and exercising… yet you struggle with your energy levels, not quite sure what to do to best nourish your body…

You hear all about how your hormones are changing throughout perimenopause and menopause, yet you can’t make sense of all the information (and the B.S.) and don’t know where to start…

You’ve explored hormone replacement therapy, but your doctor says you don't need it, or worse, put you on the pill!

You realize that what you did in your 20s doesn’t work in your 40s, but you’re not sure what to do differently…

You’ve resigned yourself to what you believe is true: That bloating, mood swings, hot flashes, insomnia, anxiety, low energy, weight gain, and irregular periods are just part of life over 40.

BUT it doesn’t have to be that way.

You can thrive after 40.
In fact, your next 40 years can be even better than your previous 40 years…

If you’ve got the Midlife Metabolic Equation. ;-)

Praise for Paula

I was suffering from fatigue, indigestion, hormonal and having mood swings...Paula's support gave me the motivation to incorporate new eating and supplement plans. I now sleep through the night without night sweats, no more acid feeling in my stomach, have lost some previously hard to get off weight and have more energy and feel so much better. I recommend Paula constantly to my friends.

--Stephanie H.

Before working with Paula, I was tired, stressed, my body hurt. I was confused with what was happening in my body. I'm learning what works for by body. Paula has helped me to learn how to help myself.

--Karen B.

I did not feel "healthy" even though I was functioning. I lost approximately 9 pounds in about 4 months time even though I have not been "trying" to lose weight, but only improved my nutrition and hydration...Working with Paula is a great way to get on track. I cannot sing Paula's praises enough.

--Lynette D.

Here’s how this program works:

You’ll start from the beginning with...


Plan & Plot Your Success with the Midlife Metabolic GPS

Module 1 is like your own personal GPS for midlife! You'll reconnect and take an honest look at where you are. Using the Midlife Lifestyle Assessment and Midlife Mindset Makeover, you’ll shift out of old mindsets, freeing you to move forward with confidence.

You'll discover the metrics that matter most in midlife using the Measure What Matters Metrics so you can stop chasing the meaningless metrics that keep you from reaching your goals.

You aren’t meant to sit on the sidelines or settle for less! No more winging it or wasting time on things that won't move the needle in your midlife metabolic and hormone health. 

Module 1 helps you get clarity, connection, and direction, so you can go from settling and sitting on the sidelines to on-the-map and back on track toward your goals!


Prime Your Digestion & Detox with the Guts to Glory Plan

In Module 2, you'll begin to nourish your body and start to feel more energized, lighter, and focused. You'll support digestion and detox and target the little known metabolic feature that is critical to healthy hormones in midlife by incorporating the superfoods inside the Go With Your Gut Guide.

Sleep disturbances, indigestion, bloating, cravings, mood swings, joint pain, and skin issues will begin to fade, and you'll be inspired to dig deeper into your nutrition plan!

Module 2 puts you back in control of your digestion and detox pathways to supercharge your metabolic health for better hormone balance.


Multiply Your Metabolism with Midlife Meal Mastery

In Module 3, you'll address Inflamm-aging head-on as you dive deeper into anti-Inflammatory nutrition made easy. You'll use the "Fight the Flames” Meal Plans and Low Prep Meals Idea Bank to balance your blood sugars, eliminate bloat, beat belly fat, and prevent inflammation-driven disease.

You'll not only know what to eat, you'll know how to eat at every meal using my Midlife Meal Formula, no matter where you are, or how busy life gets.

Then, the Midlife Micronutrient Manual will guide you to discovering the magical micronutrients for midlife that your doctor has never told you about…;-) and you'll begin using my proprietary She C.R.E.A.T.E.S. Journal to monitor your progress throughout the program, and beyond!

In Module 3, you'll prioritize, plan, and put into practice sustainable daily nutrition habits that will transform your midlife metabolic and hormone balance.


Multiply Your Metabolism with Magical Midlife Movement

In Module 4, you'll begin multiplying your efforts as you focus on movement that supports your body's ultimate metabolic machinery: muscle.

Using the Midlife Metabolic Movement Guide, you'll begin adding the movement that makes sense for you and your lifestyle so you can enjoy exercising, knowing you are impacting the most important factor for quality of life and longevity – maintaining muscle mass and strength. 

Module 4 shifts your focus from chasing fat loss to building muscle for a stronger, metabolically flexible, hormonally balanced body that won't let you down in midlife.


Subtract Sneaky Stressors with the Calm, Cool & Confident Strategy

In Module 5, you'll transform your sleep, stress, and moods as you implement strategies that honor your natural biorhythms.

You'll evaluate your brain-body communication system and use the Stress Less Strategizer to build a simple stressless life that supports the health you desire in midlife.

Module 5 gives your neurological system the support it needs to reset and rebalance your hormone foundations to amplify your energy.


Understand Your Options with the Beyond the Norm HRT Masterclass

Curious about hormone replacement therapy (HRT), but don’t know where to start? Or maybe you’ve started but you’re not sure how to make HRT work for you?

In Module 6, you'll discover the fundamental facts about hormone replacement that every woman in perimenopause and menopause needs to know. 

You'll learn about bio-identical hormone options and delivery methods in the Midlife Hormone Optimizer BHRT Guide. You'll be armed with the knowledge you need to confidently discuss HRT options with a trained practitioner.

Module 6 will take away the confusion and give you the resources you need to advocate for yourself, whether you seek out HRT or not.

And that’s just the core content…

Praise for Paula

This course is helping me with my eating and how and what to eat. It's been an eye opener! My energy levels have been better. The one thing I have noticed is less stomach issues like gas and bloating. I'm not always cravings have lessened and I'm not reaching for snacks throughout the day.

--Christie V.

Before working with Paula, I was depressed and exhausted. As a life-long dieter, I felt hopeless and had recently given up on ever really being able to lose weight and feel good again without rigid food regimens. Within a couple of weeks I experienced more energy and confidence. I have a more flexible way of eating and continue to experience increased energy, clearer thinking, and stable moods. I’ve also my lowered my blood sugar, lost weight and reduced my medication.
–Kim R.

I was tired and had aches, pain in back, legs and intestinal issues. After working with Paula I feel 100% better. It’s been a long time since I have felt this good. She is amazing and will help you as long as you are willing to do the work.

--Sue T.

"I’m very busy, I don’t have time for complicated recipes, long workouts, and time consuming routines. Will this program work for me?”

I’ve created the program with you in mind. The information and action steps are shared with you in bite-sized pieces to keep you moving forward and out of overwhelm. You will work through short weekly video lessons followed by action steps to integrate what you’ve learned into your life immediately.

I’ve also included my "Low Prep Meal Idea Bank that will help you to nourish yourself in just minutes a day with little to no cooking, counting, or calculating.

You'll also have access to my delicious curated recipe collections and weekly meal plans with shopping lists. To top that off, the 5-Minute Foodcaster will help you plan ahead to free your mind for more important activities in your day, so you never have to waste time or energy figuring out what you're going to eat at each meal!

I've heard that Perimenopause and Menopause are a rollercoaster ride and there's nothing you can do about it? How can your program help?”

While the hormone changes that come in your 40s and 50s are the result of the inevitable loss of hormones characterized by ups and downs, the proprietary method I use inside the Midlife Metabolic Equation will teach you strategies that help level that rollercoaster and keep you energized and on a stable path. I’ll also share a bonus module on bio-identical hormone supplementation and replacement if you are interested in more support. The Midlife Metabolic Equation will guide you step by step to establish the foundational strategies to calm the perimenopausal/menopausal chaos and build sustainable metabolic and hormone health for years to come.

I’ve never been a healthy eater. I love food too much and have no discipline. Can I really do this?”

You are not the first to ask…, but yes, you can! It will require some mindset shifts (which we cover in Module 1) and prioritizing yourself, but you'll have all of the training and support you need to take action and get results. Using the recipes, meal idea bank, and Midlife Meal Formula I share inside the Midlife Metabolic Equation, you’ll enjoy delicious meals that energize and satisfy you, crush cravings, and make follow-through simple. I can’t guarantee a particular result, but if you show up and do the work, you will see changes. Besides, my goal is to educate and empower you so that eventually, you won’t need me. :-)  

The She C.R.E.A.T.E.S Journal will help you easily stay on track in just minutes a day so you can stay in control and track your progress. You’ll have daily access to me in the online chat/community where I’ll provide ongoing support to cheer you on, and encourage you as you share your journey. I wish I’d had this kind of support when I was struggling with early perimenopause over 10 years ago.

The beauty of Midlife Metabolic Equation (MME) is that it is not a restrictive diet. It focuses on deeply nourishing your body without counting calories, working out hours a day, or beating your body into submission through deprivation and working off calories that most so-called “healthy diets” do. In the Midlife Metabolic Equation, we cover nutrition and lifestyle, including movement, and mindset essentials.

“Can’t I just take hormones or get the pellets to balance hormones?”

This is a common myth. Regulating and balancing hormones requires strategic and supportive nutrition, lifestyle, and mindset that creates an environment of calm and safety in the body. Inside the Midlife Metabolic Equation, I walk you through and help you establish the foundations for metabolic and hormone health that are necessary whether you choose HRT or not. Continuing a lifestyle and diet that does not focus on supporting metabolic and hormone health, will not get you the results you want. I wish it were that simple!

Adding hormones to the equation without establishing the foundations for metabolic and hormone health can be disastrous. Your body does not use hormones in a linear pathway. Hormones taken into the body can follow different pathways that can bring more imbalance, so it's important to work with someone who understands where things can go wrong, and optimize conditions for best outcomes with HRT.

In the Beyond the Norm HRT Masterclass on HRT, you’ll discover Hormone Replacement Therapy options for safe and optimal hormone delivery that you can discuss with a qualified custom HRT provider. 

I'm not sure I can afford this program? Do you offer payment plans or a lower cost option?”

If you worked with me or a functional practitioner privately to make these changes, you would pay close to $15,000 to get everything I’m offering here (which includes live support with me). This program was created to reach more women AND offer it at a more accessible/lower price. I'm also a firm believer that we "do best" when we invest.

As I mentioned before, you can continue researching and Googling to find your way forward and maybe less money doing this on your own, but that also comes at a cost...It costs you time, frustration, and maybe even a continued loss of health, not to mention the impact on your life and relationships.

I believe that if you invest in yourself financially, and with your time and effort into a proven method, you will get a return on your investment that you can't put a price on...Your health for years to come.

I offer options for one-time payments, as well as payment plans to better suit the needs of your budget.

“I understand that this is a supported group program… What does that support look like? Is there a way to get more private support?”

Inside the Midlife Metabolic Equation Course, you'll have daily access to the chat/messaging, and live access to me via monthly calls. You can ask your questions 24/7 in the group chat and get answers during my scheduled office hours. This allows you access to "picking my brain" and getting the guidance you need in a timely manner. That said, I do offer some limited opportunities to work with me privately in addition to the program for functional testing, coaching and consulting for an additional cost.

What if I have a thyroid problem and my metabolism is broken?”

The communication system between your thyroid and hormones is an important part of the Midlife Metabolic Equation.

With 90% of thyroid issues being autoimmune, the approach I use in the Midlife Metabolic Equation will support the foundations of your thyroid health. I also share thyroid testing recommendations inside my Measure What Matters Metrics so you'll be able to get the essential labs you need to assess and monitor your thyroid function.

I am a Vegan or Vegetarian...Do you offer vegan or vegetarian options in your program?”

I understand that many people adhere to a vegan diet for philosophical reasons, however, in the Midlife Metabolic Equation, I share about metabolic and hormone supportive nutrition and lifestyle which includes animal protein and products. Fundamental nutrition science and nearly 3 decades in practice have shown me that animal proteins are essential to metabolic and hormone health. Vegetarians are welcome to join the program, but it is difficult to see how this program would be helpful for vegans or vegetarians without an open mind to seeing the benefits of including ethically raised animal foods.

My situation is unique. I have tried everything and nothing works for me. How is your program different?”

While I believe in bio-individuality, the Midlife Metabolic Equation is based on scientifically backed truths of the female metabolism and hormones. The education and strategies I share inside this program lay the foundation for metabolic and hormone health and include ways to assess and customize for your specific needs. If you’re interested in going deeper for an even more personalized plan, I offer options for you to work privately with me to access functional lab testing and more.

“When does the program start?

The program starts within about 15 minutes of registration! The Intro Module, Module 1, and more, are released immediately upon registration and the others are released in a "drip" fashion. This gives you time to go through the program step-by-step, taking appropriate action in order to get the best results.

“How is this program different?”

There’s no shortage of information out there for women in their teens, 20s, and 30s…

But after 40, the advice is harder to find and often harder to implement.

At worst, most advice can be harmful.

At best, it can be confusing and too generalized.

Not to mention that the advice for one woman might not be the best advice for you — even if you’re the same age.

With Midlife Metabolic Equation, we empower you with a clear path, curated information, up-to-date options, and a formula that will give you everything you need to nourish your body, nourish your mind, and thrive after 40.

The next season of your life can be your best one yet.

Praise for Paula

I was confused and anxious about what was happening in my body, and I was tired all the time. Working with Paula helped me reconnect with myself... Within weeks, I was eating nourishing foods and losing unwanted weight, and surprisingly enjoying every bit of it. I have energy for the things that matter to me and I have discovered a new way of eating and being that I can sustain.
--Deborah B.

My stomach isn't bloated. I'm sleeping better and I'm down 3 pounds in just 2 weeks. I also has zero PMS symptoms this month!
