WAY too many times in my career I’ve seen people simply fall into acceptance when it comes to body change that can occur after 40 years of age.
Suddenly how we were eating and exercising (or not) isn’t giving us the desired result.
Instead of resigning to what may feel like inevitable body change, here are 6 things you can do to counter an aging body and metabolism:
Focus on adding as much muscle to your body as possible. Muscle will keep your metabolism high and you’ll be burning more fat all the time. And ladies, you’re not going to turn into a body builder unless that’s your goal 🙂
Cut the alcohol. Alcohol does nothing positive for our physiques or energy.
Eat mostly vegetables, then protein, then good starchy carbs like potatoes and brown rice.
Drink a ton of water – aim for half your bodyweight in ounces every day.
Sleep and take care of yourself. Whether that’s managing stress or ensuring your own health needs are top priority, it’s more important than ever before that you tend to yourself.
Reduce sugar as much as possible. Sugar is addictive (I know this all too well), it feeds disease, and it does NOT keep the fat away – but you probably already knew that 🙂
I turn 45 years old later this month and I make it a priority to keep myself as healthy and fit as possible, especially now more than I ever!
It’s important to me to look good, to feel good, to move better, to perform well, and to be an inspiration for you and anyone else that needs a little extra motivation and someone to look up to. I’m also determined to set an example for my grandkids…what better way than to have a grandma that runs through mountains and climbs over walls 😉
