  1. Being more inactive: As you get older, you do have more aches and pains in the knees / back etc. making the prospect of exercise very unattractive.  Not only that, those of you in trade industries tend to back ‘away from the tools’ and take on a more supervisory role (so you are just not as physically active at work).  As a result, you will put on weight unless you adjust your calorie intake accordingly.  Exercising over the age of 50 is not just vital for weight control – also important to maintain good bone density which will prevent osteoporosis.  Most older people are also rather ‘fearful’ about joining a gym, especially if they perceive it to be only for the young and fit.

The Natural Way solution:  The problem is if you discontinue exercise in your golden years, then you will suffer.  We have muscles to keep us strong – so if you don’t use them, you will lose them. The Natural Way has our exclusive The Walking Program which is a perfect way to ‘ramp up’ your exercise.  There really is no need to join a gym with our Walking Program – it’s just a great way to get the most amateur exerciser started in a routine that will gradually build up as the fitness levels grow.

  1. More medications: it is true that an over-abundance of prescribed medications can change the way the body works (which is what it is designed to do!) and this may impact on weight loss.  This is simply because liver detoxification can be slowed down due to the processing of the drugs and the effect that some can have on the metabolic rate.

The Natural Way  solution:  Our De-Xtra drops are vital to encourage an enhanced liver function.  This way, the body will more effectively ‘break down’ the medications in the system and keep the detoxification function stimulated.

So age is not an excuse – you can lose weight no matter how old you are!  We would love to help you and with more than 30 years experience, we know that your dream can become a reality.  Make a free appointment at your nearest clinic by phoning 1300SLIMMER (1300 754663) and find out more about how you can be over 50 AND fabulous.
