Why Is It Harder To Lose Weight As You Get Older?

why is it hard to lose weight

A lot of women find it harder to lose weight as they get older, you might be able to relate to this?

You hit 28 and all of a sudden you can't eat or drink like you used to without the clothes getting tighter or feeling like it's impossible to shift the extra weight. 

I'm sorry to say but I've got bad news for you..

It IS harder to lose weight as we get older. Why?

When you turn 25 your metabolic rate (metabolism) slows down a little bit each year (apparently 2-4%) and you're metabolism is a main contributor to the number of calories you burn in day.

So if over the years you're eating the same (or more), moving less and your metabolism continues to slow down then.. weight gain!

There are a number of reasons for the inevitable decline in our metabolic rate, including:

  • After 30 we start to lose muscle mass. Up to 3-5% a year for inactive people.
  • Food is becoming less nutritious and more calorific.
  • Portion sizes are getting bigger.
  • Lifestyles are more sedentary, people move less.
  • Your body stops growing around 25 therefore no energy is required for growth.

This DOES NOT mean that you're doomed to grow old and fat. What if I told you that there ARE things you can do to boost and maintain your metabolic rate?

Wouldn't it be nice to have the metabolism of a 25 year old??

So what CAN you do to increase and maintain your metabolism and the rate you burn fat?

There are a handful of things, some more effective than others but if used all together could turn your body into the lean, mean, fat burning machine you want. Such as:

  • Resistance training
  • HIIT
  • Increased NEAT (non exercise activity thermogenisis)
  • Eat more protein
  • Eat more fibre (fruits and veggies)
  • Drink more water
  • Strategic cheat meals
  • Strategically drink coffee
  • Do not crash diet
  • Cut down alcohol
