Hello Beautiful Ladies! Hitting your 40s has plenty of benefits, such as earned wisdom, increased self-awareness, and self-confidence. Truth be told, though, it’s tough getting used to some of the physical changes. A biggie is a downshift in metabolism, which can make weight maintenance trickier and weightloss more challenging. However, losing weight after 40 isn’t impossible.
THE ‘3’ ULTIMATE WEIGHT LOSS STRATEGIES!
So, here’s what’s really going on with your body after 40 and what you can do to feel healthy and strong as you age.
1. Eat a lot more veggies
Start with veggies first, then build your meals around them. At breakfast, whip a generous handful of greens into a smoothie, fold shredded zucchini into oats, add veggies to an egg or chickpea scramble, or simply eat veggies on the side, like sliced cucumber or red bell pepper. Rather than sandwiches or wraps at lunch, go for salads or bowls, with a large base of greens and veggies. At dinner, sauté, oven-roast, grill, or stir-fry veggies, and make them the largest component of the meal.
2. Your Body Starts Becoming Insulin Resistant
As you get older, and especially as you gain weight, the body starts to ignore insulin — the hormone responsible for regulating blood sugar levels. Not only can this lead to unwanted pounds. To avoid a glucose overload, We recommends including a mix of carbohydrates, protein, and fat at every meal.
3. Don’t Make a Second Trip
You tend to be less active as you get older, and you may need a few hundred calories less than you used to. To lose weight, you may need to cut your calories back even more. Smaller portions and tracking your calories with a food diary or an app can help you eat less.
