Losing Weight After 50 (Part 1 of 3): Metabolic Issues
Welcome to part 1 of a 3-part series on losing weight after 50. In this video, we’ll identify metabolic issues that arise as we age and how they affect our ability to lose weight.
And then, I’ll bring you parts two and three where we’ll discuss fat loss strategies that work despite our age, and practical food swaps that make the whole process easy, enjoyable and effective. I hope you’ll join me!
As we age, we accumulate metabolic disadvantages like a slower BMR, injuries, and hormonal issues (menopause or lower testosterone).
While these issues may slow the rate at which our bodies lose weight, they do not prevent weight loss. And, these issues are not significantly changed by what we eat.
However, there are two metabolic disadvantages that impact our ability to burn fat that can be influenced by our diet: Insulin Resistance and Poor Gut Health.
I explain why these issues block fat loss and set the stage for parts 2 and 3 of our series on Losing Weight after 50.
