Your metabolism isn’t broken after 40.
But when you perpetually fad diet and eat less while also exercising more, you’ll be working against your metabolism and hormones.
Here’s what you should do instead:
1. Focus on Nutrition: Nutrition is key when it comes to fat loss. You should focus on eating a healthy, balanced diet that is high in protein, fiber, and complex carbohydrates. Avoid consuming too many processed foods, sugary drinks, alcohol, and foods containing trans fats. Tracking calories or macros using an app or journal is also helpful. Or check out the reel I posted today teaching you about #macrosmadeeffortless.
2. Incorporate Strength Training: cardio can help burn calories but strength training is far more important for fat loss.
3. Set an Achievable Goal: Ditch the idea that you are gonna lose 30lbs in 30 days for your reunion. This isn’t a short term band aid. This is a lifestyle. The biggest goal killer is when you set yourself up for failure by setting unrealistic weight loss goals. Instead aim for a gradual weight loss goal. Losing 0.50lb a week is a sustainable and doable goal!
