When it comes to diet and losing weight, metabolism plays a big part. Do you know that as we grow older, it is harder for us to lose unwanted weight? This is because our metabolism has decreased as we age. When you were still young or during your teenage time, you can eat whatever you like, sleep long hours and you still can be thin. This is because your metabolism was working maximally when you were still a teenager.
For instance, when you have reached 30 or 40 years old, you cannot eat like when you were 16 or 20 years old. If your eating habit is still the same as when you were 20 years old, you will get FAT very quickly. This is because the demands for energy from your body has dropped significantly when you reach 40 years old. Therefore, the only way to boost your metabolism when you are getting older is through regular exercises. We suggest you to take up strength training to build some muscles as this can help you to burn unwanted fat.
Diet and exercise are keys to boosting or fueling your metabolism.
Begin with a healthy and well-balanced diets that can provide you all the ‘must-have’ nutritions for your body. For example, the vitamins, minerals, herbs, antioxidants, proteins, phytonutrients and digestive support that will turn your body into a well-oiled machine.
However, make sure that your dietary choices are condition specific. We are not all the same and each of us experiences specific conditions that are personally unique to us based on our history, genetics, habits, etc.
Develop a good exercise regimen
We suggest a combination of strength training and cardio – twice a week strength training as well as twice a week cardio training is the best combination. Strength training combining with cardio not only will help you to build muscles but also burn calories quickly and efficiently.
