There’s a chill on the air, the sun sets at 5:14pm (yep, I checked) and salad and exercise is nowhere near as appealing as take-away and the couch!
This time of year, when the seasons and our behavioural patterns are noticeably changing, is such an important time to lay down a routine. Not only to keep your weight loss goals on track (or prevent slipping backwards) but to maintain your health consistently year-round. This will keep your immune system firing, your energy high, and prevent premature ageing (aesthetically and internally to all your body systems).
Do you feel like the busyness of modern life doesn’t stress you at all?
Or is your heart racing from the moment your alarm goes off?
Even if you feel like you’re on top of it, the sheer busyness of our modern world puts major stress on your body internally. Compare the number of things vying for your attention in a standard day with that of your grandparents...
Unfortunately, it does get harder to lose weight the older we get. What once seemed so easy – just eat less junk and go for a walk – now seems near impossible.
Thankfully losing weight beyond your 40s is definitely doable. You just need to know a few biochemistry basics to level the playing field. It’s not ridiculously complicated, it’s all about the simple things.
