Age and Weight Loss

Fact or fiction?

People commonly gain weight as they get older. FACT. The National National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey study actually found that women actually gain 5.2 percent of their bodyweight every 10 year interval. (Men gained about 3.4 percent, go figure.) Remember, this is percentage of bodyweight, so if you currently weight 150lbs – that means that every 10 years, the average woman would gain 7.8lbs. That is nearly 10 pounds a year!

What causes this is something called an “energy imbalance”. Put quite simply, we simply move less and eat more as we get older and it all adds up. Your BMR (Basal Metabolic Rate) which I talk about here, actually decreases by 1-2 percent per decade. So no, it is not in your mind that it is actually harder to lose the weight caused by indulgence as you get older!

So if your body itself actually burns LESS calories per day as you get older, what can you do about it?

1.) Take SLIMQUICK: Offset your lower BMR with an energy increasing SLIMQUICK.

2.) Lift some weights and build muscle!

The more muscle that you have, the higher your metabolism, and that’s a good thing. And remember, it’s okay to cheat, but as we all get older – it becomes harder to reverse the damage! What do you think?
