How To Lose Weight In Middle Age

Cardio training fitness

What is the earliest thing that happens when you hit middle age? For women, it happens when their periods stop, and for men, it happens when their body starts to lose its muscle. Losing muscle not a good idea because fat is stored in your muscles and not the other way around.

How to lose body fat and maintain lean muscle mass? 

First, you need to eat a balanced diet. You should keep a balanced diet of about 40 percent carbohydrates, 30 percent proteins, and 30 percent fats.

You must also exercise and keep your exercise program consistent. Make your exercise sessions stimulating and not boring so that you will remain motivated and focused on your goal. In essence, it is about keeping a healthy lifestyle and not living an exercise routine.

For women over 35 years old who are breastfeeding there is nothing better than working out. By working out, you maintain the calcium in your bones and strengthen the muscles and other irregularities in your body.

You will probably find that after a few months of exercising you will see your body become more fit, toned, and agile. As you can see that this is a stable and long-lasting way of losing weight.

It is important to understand what kind of diet will work best for your particular situation. A crash diet probably won’t work out well. It just encourages your body to store up fat, and soon after you crash diet, you will probably put all the weight back on.

Do you need diet pills and cardiovascular exercises?

Diet pills are another thing you can try but keep in mind they do not work and could have side effects. Take time to do some research before you start taking any type of pills because they are not all as safe as they appear to be.

The type of exercise that is best for you depends on your lifestyle. If you find that you are quite active but that you have a few moments where you sit down and cannot put the breaks on then you need to look carefully at your exercise program and either slightly modify it or combine it with something else.

What you are looking for is a cardiovascular exercise which helps to speed your metabolism up so that you are more efficient when it comes to burning fat. Your exercise program needs to contain at least two sessions a week that involve cardio so that your body can easily adjust.

But if cardio just does not appeal to you, then you will need to add in some interval training. Interval training is a session of high-intensity workouts followed by low-intensity workouts. For example, on a treadmill, you would run at high speed for a minute and then walk at a slow pace for two minutes. Repeat this process for at least 12 minutes before moving on to the next high-intensity session.

As you can see, there are many alternative ways to get rid of fat not only from your stomach but also from all around your body. You should be exercising at least 3 times a week and maintaining a balanced healthy diet to not only lose weight on your stomach but also your whole body.
