Forty is the new thirty. You have heard that a few million times. However, trying to lose weight in your thirties was easy. Why is it so difficult to lose weight after forty?
Reviews indicate that there are a number of reasons. Some of them are:
Your responsibilities increase as you grow older. More responsibilities increase the potential for unhealthy stress to occur. Cortisol is the stress hormone. High levels of stress trigger the ‘fight or flight’ response. Either response requires energy for execution.
When either of these responses is triggered cortisol jumps in. It injects the blood with more sugar than it needs. This added sugar triggers insulin to step in. Insulin helps control how much sugar you have in your blood. It soaks up the excess sugar and stores it in your fat cells.
In line with above, added responsibilities lead to exhaustion. In that state, thinking about exercising or eating healthy is all but impossible. You opt for quick and easy. Quick and easy tends to be high in carbohydrates and sugar. In contrast, they are low in nutritional value.
Change in Hormones
The function of key hormones begins to decline. Some of those hormones include estrogen and thyroid.
Estrogen is responsible for the development of female sexual attributes e.g. breasts and the menstrual cycle. In your forties, you are peri or post menopausal. Your breasts are no longer growing. Estrogen decreases and this causes insulin levels to rise. From the above you know what happens next.
The thyroid controls the hormones crucial for metabolism. It slows down as you grow older. Low levels of metabolism result in low energy levels. As mentioned earlier, exhaustion and exercise or healthy eating don’t pair well.
Improper Exercise and Nutrition.
Each stage of your life requires specific exercise and nutrition. As you grow older, to ensure you continue to receive their intended benefits, you must modify both accordingly. Few people know to do this. Blame it on the comfort zone phenomena.
In short, once you hit forty, an uphill health and fitness battle begins. Shawna Kaminski wants to help you fight the good fight. Today’s review is of her book, Female Fat-Loss Over 40.
Who is Shawna Kaminski
Fat gain after forty is blamed on a slowing metabolism. Many health, fitness, and medical practitioners say that you can do nothing about it. Shawna begs to differ. She is a certified personal trainer. She is also a best-selling author.
As a personal trainer, she has worked with many ladies who are in their forties. They have one common complaint. There is more fat than there was before. She took some time to look into the complaint. Why is there more fat and jiggly bits after forty? She found the culprit. A decrease in lean muscle. Not a slowing metabolism. Her finding is confirmed by scientific research.
She crafted a best-selling book with that knowledge. The book is called Female Fat Loss Over 40. Let us check it out.
