Losing weight can seem harder than ever after age 40, but it’s not impossible if you follow these tips.
Adults over 40 need more protein in their diets – at least 20 to 30 grams per meal. Eat a big breakfast, avoid late-night snacks, and cut down on fried foods and soda. Tracking your diet with a food app is the best way to stay honest. Exercise is important, but it’s also important for people over 40 to avoid over-exercising. A total-body strength routine 3-5 times a week is ideal. Other tips include avoiding stress, getting a full night’s sleep, and having thyroid levels checked.
