Happy #WellnessWednesday! Today I want to discuss something that no one likes to talk about.. getting older and aging! Did you know that once you hit 40 years of age, whether you’re a man or a women, your body starts aging at a faster rate than in your 20’s and 30’s? That’s no April Fool’s joke!
90% of people over the age of 35 lose enough muscle every year to burn off an additional 4 pounds of body fat? That means you not only lose the only thing on your body that creates shape, tone, and strength—you also gain more fat every year, even if your calories stay the same. Seriously, I’m not pulling an April Fool’s joke!!
But this is reversible at any age and with proper exercise and nutrition you could actually look and feel much younger next year than you do now. Anti-aging experts have come up with many ways to reverse the aging process from a cellular level so your body will look, feel, and MOVE younger than your chronological age.
Here are 3 Key Principles to start today to slow and even reverse aging plus shape your body and burn off stubborn fat to help you feel healthy, fit and well!
1 – Lose the Low fat diet
Low fat everything has been the craze now for decades and look around. What has that wonderful bit of advice done for the bodies you see? We’re fatter, sicker, and more addicted to sugar and carbs than any other time in history.
Fats are not to be feared – they’re to be embraced. They do not make you fat; rather, they help your body regenerate your power hormones. Testosterone, the ‘strength’ hormone, for example, is the direct result of cholesterol and dietary fat intake. That’s right: “Cholesterol” isn’t a dirty word! Your body needs dietary fat and cholesterol in order to produce ALL vital hormones.
People on low fat diets look drawn, gaunt, and weak. They are often sick, sometimes to the point of literally breaking down. And, they can never just enjoy eating out, what’s the fun in that?
2 – Drink more water
Water isn’t just “good for you” — water burns fat. Water suppresses hunger. Water renews your skin. Just drinking 12 ounces of pure water every day can take a few years off your face in a matter of weeks. You’ll also drop fat, have more energy, and save your kidneys and liver from chronic overwork.
When your kidneys are taxed from too little water, your liver has to take over. Now, get this: Your liver is your number one fat-burning organ. Do you REALLY want it processing liquids and toxins rather than BURNING FAT? No way, right? Well, grab a glass of water, and watch the mirror. Within a few weeks, the change to your face and body will be noticeable.
3 – Work out Less (yep! Less!)
If you don’t work out at all, you’re going to lose muscle tissue every year. That means you’ll get fatter and flabbier each and every year with less shape less energy.
The answer is training with weights and doing short bursts of cardio. Here’s the secret: hardly anyone is doing it right! The people who look the best, least flabby and most toned with lots of energy are the ones who leave the gym while others are still warming up. I truly believe that all most people need is 45 minutes of intense quality movement 3x a week to see awesome results and preserve bodies from wear and tear. You can achieve your ideal body with minimal time and still have a life outside the gym, trust me!
