Is Being Fit Over 40 Possible?
By Sammie Clemmons
The answer to my title question is a resounding yes!
There is absolutely no reason that people over 40 have to give up and 'let themselves go'. You can be fit and healthy at any age- but you do have to know how to do that, as there are things you must change in order to stay in great shape after the age of forty. Knowing that the body's metabolism slows when we reach middle age, your first priority is stimulating your metabolism.
There are a couple of things that are essential to revving your fat-burners up to what they were like in your twenties and thirties:
Regular exercise. New studies tell us that short bursts of exercise, more frequently, are even better for you than hours struggling at the gym. So wherever you are, and as many times a day as you can, give yourself some 5-minute exercises that help shape your muscles but also increase your metabolism, which increases your fat loss. A great cycle to be in-- more metabolism, more fat loss, and the more muscle you have, the quickly it burns fat from your body and results in even more fat loss.
Small, frequent meals to keep your body's regulators from spiking and dropping, which causes fat increases. You should also watch that you eat as many fresh fruits and vegetables as possible, and completely stay away from processed foods if possible. There are too many unnatural ingredients contained in processed foods and fast foods- trans fats and artificial sweeteners are among the worst.
