7 Weight Loss Tips After 50

Why Is Weight Loss So Difficult After 50?

It seems that once you hit 50 it becomes harder to maintain your weight, so we’re to help you with 7 weight loss tips after 50. It’s as if your body is fighting against your attempts to stay fit once you cross over that invisible boundary. Mentally, you feel like you’re in your 30s, but your body is reminding you that this isn’t the case. What’s going on?

 

There are many factors that contribute to the weight loss battle after 50. When these factors combine, it can feel like a losing battle.

 

One major factor is lower hormone levels. Lower hormones equate to slower metabolism, which then leads to a reduction in the calories your body burns. Additional factors in weight gain after 50 include the following:

  • Muscles mass decreases.
  • Energy levels decrease. 
  • Activity level decreases. 
  • Sleep patterns change.

Luckily, there are several things you can do to counteract these natural changes your body goes through after 50.

Great Ways to Lose Weight After 50

Here is a list of safe and effective ways to lose weight after 50:

  1. Add more fruits and vegetables to your diet.
  2. Eat a healthy, low carb breakfast. Breakfast is the most important meal of the day.
  3. Eat healthy, portion-controlled meals. Stop eating when you are full.
  4. Cut out sugary drinks and foods. There are about 150 wasted calories in a regular soft drink. 
  5. Get some exercise. Take brisk walks, take up resistance training, swim, do aerobics, use weights. 
  6. Keep stress to a minimum. Stress releases cortisol. High levels of cortisol are directly related to increased weight.
  7. Sleep well. A full 7 to 8 hours of sleep a night will keep you alert and rested.
