Weight Loss Over 40 Way of Thinking. This is an easy one, at 40 the thinking is we can eat the same way and not worry about it. Wrong! As we get older the body tends to burn less calories and we slow down. We become more involved with the kids activities and less in our own. So if we believe that nothing has changed over 40 that is our first error.
Why isn't our workout getting the same results? The muscles need to be exercise in different ways. If you do the same routine over and over the muscles will not advance past a certain level. You need to change it up by doing strength, resistant, flex, and cardio. Alternating from one day to another using only one of the four workout types. This will keep your muscles guessing what is coming next. So you will have more defined and better condition muscles.
Workouts should be every other day allowing your muscles to recuperate, fatigue muscles will get injured. There are two reasons to drink a lot of water, one to keep from dehydration and two to flush the body system out. The body builds up contamination's that keeps the body from functioning properly.
Over 40 our ability to burn calories goes down so un-burn calories turn into Fat. Can we continue to eat without thinking? No! Because we want to stay in shape with not a lot of body Fat. If you don't think about what you eat then you must be willing to workout 3 hours every day.
You must find a balance between the foods you eat and the workout programs need to burn off the calories. Each body is different so you need try various combinations of diet and exercises. When you find the one that works for you always change it up. The body will adapt to regular routine and the results will suffer.
In conclusion: The older we get our thinking must change to keep up with our bodies. If not our bodies will change our thinking about ourselves.
