Over 40, Lose Weight Permanently And Be More Attractive Than Ever
Some women radiate femininity- and you can use the newest scientific research too to lose weight permanently over 40. After all, it’s not only about being more attractive, you’ll gain a lot of energy and vitality too.
But what happens when your body is aging? Simplified, your metabolism slows down. Compared to a 20 year old woman, a 40 year old woman burns 10 to 15% calories less- but the eating habits usually do not change:
If a 20 year old woman needs 2000 calories a day, a 40 year old woman needs 300 calories less. This might be the equivalent of two cans of soda, a piece of cake or 3 bananas. If you do not reduce your food intake, you’ll gain approximately 1 lb every 2 weeks- or 26 lbs per year!
In addition, the body transforms more muscles into fat- making losing weight over 40 permanently even harder. A workout program targeting the whole body is really important- and it will improve your mood too.
And: the female body is programmed to store fat much more efficiently than the male body. After all, in pregnancy the body has to care for two people. Unfortunately, the efficient fat storage does not change after menopause.
For many women over 40 the level of physical activity changes too. Young mothers get a lot of exercise just by being with their kids. This changes when the kids grow older and are more on their own. In addition, the days of women over 40 are packed with activities, there is often no time for an exercise program. The schedule demands for quick meal preparation, so we eat out or buy packaged food- these foods often contain a lot of unwanted fat.
Stress levels in the job are often increasing too and stress is a major component of failing to lose weight permanently.
It is very difficult to lose weight permanently for women over 40. You’ll need to acknowledge this fact and work with your body, not against it. Signup for my free Steps To Lose Weight Permanently For Women Over 40 to get more easily applicable tips and techniques.
