How would you like to control your weight? Many women over 40 experience constantly shifting numbers on the scale. Some even do not want to weigh themselves, because they are too embarrassed. Weight control for women over 40 doesn’t have to be hard- but you’ll have to find out what works for you in your specific situation. With this short article I’d like to give you some easy tips on how to manage your weight in simple ways.
First of all, make sure you drink enough. Don’t drink anything containing sugar though- it will only end up on your waist. And: Stay away from “diet” sodas containing artificial sweeteners. These have been found no to reduce weight.
Better: Drink tea, particularly green tea. It contains lots of helpful antioxidants which will help fight cancer. And get enough water to flush your kidneys and the blood stream. You need to get all toxins out of your body, or they’ll end up in your body fat.
Second, eat 5-6 small meals a day. And: Start with the breakfast. Have a small, healthy breakfast, for example oatmeal with low-fat milk, or a bit of whole grain bread. The typical “hearty” American breakfast with eggs, sausages and bacon won’t help you to lose weight permanently.
Have each meal contain a source of lean protein. It will help you to feel fuller longer.
Third, include some physical activity in your day. Get a walk at lunch time, or play with kids in the evening. You do not have to go to a gym to be active!
Women over 40 have busy lives. You need a program that’s specializing in your particular situation if you want to control weight successfully.
