Life sure changes as you age. For example, as you reach the age of thirty and beyond, your body strives to put on weight by nature. As you age, your metabolism also changes, and as it slows down, it becomes much easier to gain weight, burning calories much more slowly than earlier in your life.
With aging also comes muscle fat increasing, weighing down your joints as well as muscles and bones. Plus you begin to feel less active, with less energy due to your slower metabolism.
Since your muscles are vital in burning calories, when your metabolism begins to slow, sapping your energy, your muscles diminish in functionality as well, unless you take charge and exercise, under guidance of your healthcare provider.
Donâ€™t just pig out, either. Keep track and monitor your eating and weight gain. Extra weight can leads to other conditions like diabetes and heart problems.
So donâ€™t just let old age set in. Instead, take charge and change your lifestyle. Set goals to lead longer, happier and healthier lifestyles. Make daily exercise part of your agenda and that of your loved ones. Cook and eat healthier.
