Why Losing Weight Over 50 is Not Hard (Part 1)

Some people as they get older, ‘give up’ on losing weight.  They actually think ‘I’m too old to lose weight now, so why should I bother trying?’  Not only is this a defeatist attitude, it’s totally false!  Over the next few weeks, I want to discuss the challenges surrounding weight loss once you are over 50 and the easy solutions to these hiccups that The Natural Way can provide:

You don't have to be a victim of middle age spread with The Natural Way

You don’t have to be a victim of middle age spread with The Natural Way

  1. Estrogen levels decline: Prior to menopause, estrogen production causes fat to accumlate around the hips and thighs.  This is simply because fat stores in these all-important areas are important for child-bearing.  However, once estrogen levels begin to slowly decline, your body realises that pregnancy is not an option and fat storage changes.  Women may find that fat begins to build up around their belly (just like men!).  This creates the all too common “mena-pot”.

The Natural Way solution:  Our own Natural Woman is designed to combat the ‘mena-pot’.  The herbs in Natural Woman contain a healthy supply of phyto (plant)-estrogens which improve your estrogen levels and keep the body ‘satisfied’ that the levels are not declining too rapidly, thus decreasing the likelihood of ‘middle-age spread’ (and other unpleasant menopausal symptoms) occuring.  If you are looking for an all-natural HRT, this is the answer.

  1. Your metabolism slows down with age: Yes, it’s true:  as you age, your body burns fewer calories than it used to.  This is because as you get older, your muscle mass decreases and the amount of fat tissue tends to increase, which slows down your basal metabolic rate.  Naturally, this means your body burns less calories than it used to.

The Natural Way solution:  Exercise is vital to keep the body ‘chewing up’ those extra calories.  In particular, you need to lift weights .  The more muscle tissue you maintain as you age, the less your metabolism will slow down.  In addition to keeping up the resistance exercise, you need our C-1000, which is our all natural metabolism enhancer.  Our C-1000 has a regulating effect on the thyroid, and its improved function means you are able to utilise excess calories much more efficiently.

I will be writing Part 2 of this blog next week.  However, in the meantime, if you would like to know more about how we can help you lose weight – no matter what your age – then you need to call us today.  Make a free appointment at your nearest clinic by phoning 1300SLIMMER (1300 754663) and let our holistic program help you to lose weight naturally.
