HOW TO LOSE WEIGHT/FAT IF YOU'RE A WOMAN OVER 40??
What happens to our bodies after 40 is a trifecta of weight gain: Our hormones change, our metabolism starts to slow down and if we're not lifting weights, we start to lose just a little more muscle every year. That muscle can help protect us from gaining weight because it's more metabolically active. When we lose that muscle, our metabolisms drop even more. There are a couple of things that happen to your metabolism after the age of 40. First, your basal metabolic rate (BMR) decreases and, second, you expend less total energy (TEE) during exercise. Like our metabolisms, we also start to lose muscle when we hit our 40s, experiencing a steady decline each decade. The biggest factor in losing muscle is the lack of physical activity, which makes exercise a crucial component when it comes to preventing muscle loss. How to: 1- Set goals 2- Start resistance training. 3- Start tracking calories. 4- Eat healthy foods. 5- Don't (completely) blame menopause. 6- Don't rely on cardio. 7- Get enough sleep. Thanks!
