Have you ever considered that ageing makes it more difficult to lose weight? If you get into this myth, which diet culture has been promoting for years, it may be really discouraging to think about.
According to recent studies, our metabolism is unaffected by ageing between the ages of 20 and 60. Even so, after the age of 60, metabolism only declines by less than 1% year. The news is excellent!
Contrary to what we have been told, we have a great deal more influence over our metabolism.
So why does losing weight seem more difficult as we age? We are frequently busier, more stressed out, and have established lifestyle patterns. Simply put, as we become older, it gets harder for many of us to establish new behaviours.
A few essential nutrients are necessary to maintain an effective metabolism, which facilitates weight reduction. Choosing meals high in protein, vitamin D, and calcium can also help you maintain a constant energy level, grow muscle mass, and stop bone loss.
