Today, we will talk about aging with strength which focuses on a strong body and mind. The two work in tandem. Many readers who struggle with weight gain ask how to lose weight fast over 50. There has been lots of misinformation slung our way throughout the years, with a common misconception that it’s next to impossible to lose weight once menopause knocks on our door.
After the age of fifty, things begin to change in our bodies. Fifty-one is the average age of menopause. Once we hit postmenopausal (twelve months without menstruating), we produce less estrogen and are at a greater risk of osteoporosis, cardiovascular disease, and depression. This is why it’s more important than ever to take care of our bones, stay active, eat right, train our brain, get enough sleep, have a healthy gut, and treat our skin with kindness. For half a century or more, we’ve earned confidence and wisdom that comes along with aging. Now it’s time to enjoy every minute of it. Healthy habits will help us live our happiest days.
For the past fifty years, we’ve been told to cut calories and exercise more. right?! Wrong. While exercise is key to staying active, our diet is the most important factor in aging well. If I’ve said it once, I’ve said it a million times you can’t out-exercise a poor diet. It took me sixty years to let that one fact sink in. And we’ve also been fed a lie that it’s natural to gain weight as we age, especially fat around our mid-section. While it’s easy to gain weight after fifty, it isn’t impossible to lose it. If you are interested in how to lose weight fast over 50, it starts with your eating habits. The next round of FASTer Way to Fat Loss begins Monday, November 1. Just in time for the holidays!
