As you get older (not to say 40 is old), you may find that losing weight become more challenging. Not only is your metabolism slowing, but you may also find that it seems like you have less time. You are so busy taking care of things, how are you supposed to find time to get to the gym? Let’s look at some thing that you can do to help you shed those unwanted pounds.
How to Lose Weight Over 40
Think “simple”. You want an easy way to control your diet, and short workouts, hopefully ones that you can do at home to help eliminate excuses. You really need to combine proper nutrition with exercise if you want to start seeing real results.
If you are a calorie counter, remember that 3500 calories = 1 pound. That means that for every 3500 calories that you take out of your system, whether it is through eating less or exercising more, you will lose a pound…. theoretically. The truth is, everyone’s body is different. The key is finding what works for you.
As you get older, nutrition is going to play a bigger role in your weight loss that it may have used to. Yes, exercise is awesome, and you need to be doing it. But you need to be more aware of what you are eating than you used to be. Your metabolism is slowing down, and proper nutrition SUPER important to shedding pounds. The EASIEST system that I have seen for portion control was created by Autumn Calabrese. CLICK HERE to check it out.

The key to losing weight over 40 is combining the exercise with proper nutrition. Both of the resources above will help you do that. There is no magic pill that some crazy TV doctor can suggest, or single exercise that will get you where you want to be.
