Right around 40 your body gives you a last ditch boost and you usually can lose weight then. However, beyond that hormones actually work against your weight loss by making you super lethargic and more of a comfort eater. Of course checking with your doctor to ensure everything is working as it should be is the first thing to do.
There is also no healthy way of getting around the fact that we need to stay hydrated and exercise! Then try one or both of the tips offered by women in their 50s that have lost weight. Add mint leaves to your meals. Fresh mint eases bloating. Allowing you to feel more energetic after a meal. Mint also triggers the release of bile from the gallbladder which then helps the body to digest.
What is the other tip for losing weight? The 10 hour eating window. Meaning you get 10 hours a day to eat as you think you should. So if you eat breakfast at 7 AM then you can’t eat anything after 5 PM. It gives your body time to basically reboot and begin using some of the stored fat!
