As you mentioned, not all women gain weight after menopause however it is quite common. When estrogen levels drop, the adrenal glands tell the body to store estrogen in our fat cells and more of the food we eat is converted into fat cells. This fat is concentrated in the belly area during perimenopause and after menopause.
