Aging With the Right Mindset

Reaching 40 is not always easy to assume. Many changes are heading your way. Some of those changes can be at home or at work, but most changes affect your body. However, there is no need to worry, this should not lead to a mid-life crisis.

Maryland-based Dr. Kathryn Boling says that, on average, people gain as many as 15 pounds between the ages of 40 and 55. She says it’s partly because of a decrease in metabolism. It goes hand and hand with muscle loss. Because you lose muscle tissue at a rate of up to five percent per year starting at age 30, by age 40 your resting metabolism drops which results in your body burning less calories.

But don’t panic, there are things you can do to minimize this condition and avoid muscle mass loss and weight gain in your forties.According to Dr. Frank Lipman, there are ways to build muscle, and in turn, burn calories, no matter what your age. By exercising, eating plenty of organic protein and taking supplements, you can ward off weight gain. However, the truth is, most people simply don’t know how to get a good workout. Even if they go to the gym regularly, they end up getting frustrated because they don’t have the support and the know-how to get the results they want. But there is a solution for this as well: getting customized workouts with a clear focus on your goals and results. That is why Fitness Together exits.
