Are you a woman over 40? Couldn't you lose as much weight as you’d like to?
Seriously, how many times have you tried to lose weight without a lasting result?
When doing work with with women over 40 I find the same dangers preventing permanent, lasting weight loss over and over...
Deficit in Attention, Social Life and Sex
Women cover for their emotional needs by eating, which makes it impossible to lose weight permanently:
Expand your circle of friends and socialize more often
Cultivate existing friendships
Value your personal life;Accentuate your personal life and take time for yourself
Receive more sunshine
Being exposed to sunlight has many healing benefits, and makes it easier to lose weight permanently:
Go outdoors daily, not enough sun creates cravings for sweets
Don’t wear sunglasses on a dreary day
During winter months, visit a tanning salon now and then or get a lamp that produces light similar to daylight
Alcohol is high in calories and stimulates hunger:
Never drink alcohol when you’re feeling down or depressed
Drink only on occasion and in social situations, and never drink when you are alone
Avoid beverages high in alcohol content
Hormones and Medicament Side Effects
Because of hormone changes that occur as we age, it's harder for women over 40 to lose weight permanently:
If you receive sudden weight gain, consult a doctor
Some drugs cause weight gain - talk to your doctor
Never terminate taking a drug without the advice of your doctor
Mistakes in Nutrition
When you are a woman over 40, the body begins to store fat much easier.
By paying close care to your nutrition, permanent weight loss is possible:
Have as much fruit, veggies or whole wheat products as possible
Understand labels and remember there are hidden fats in foods such as processed foods, cheese, sausage and pastries
Cook your foods using a healthy method such as steaming, roasting or stewing, and avoid frying. Leave off breaded foods and dressings high in fat.
Avoid empty carbs, for example in white sugar, white flour, white rice, many desserts, white bread or cake
Control labels before purchasing a product to see how many calories it contains
Avoid processed foods
Artificial sweeteners might stimulate your appetite, so try not to use them
