When you reach age 40, losing weight becomes a little more involved.
Here's why... Generally, muscle strength reaches its highest point at age 30 and declines every decade. As you lose muscle mass, you start to increase fat mass.
Women especially tend to notice belly fat around the waist. Some of this has to do with hormones because they play a big role in every aspect of fat... including fat storage, gut bacteria, and cravings.
Maintaining hormonal balance starts with what's on your plate. With the Eat For Vitality Fit Over 40 Meal Plan, you'll eat foods that stabilize your blood sugar so you feel less hungry and more balanced throughout the day.
You'll be increasing your fiber intake and eating foods that don't cause high cortisol levels, which means a healthy and happy body...including your gut.
Losing weight is about more than just vanity.
Fat, especially belly fat, correlates with a number of diseases, including diabetes, heart disease, and certain cancers. And, belly fat is a marker that your health is going downhill.
