Stay slim at and after 40 is not as simple as one might think. As we get older, our body changes and our metabolism begins to slow down. We get to a point in our lives when we get settled in a routine that becomes harder and harder to change. With every generation, the life expectancy rate gets shorter. But we can change that with very little effort and can have fun making the change.
Things You Will NeedEating plan.
Good walking shoes.
Start with a regular exercise routine. It does not have to be elaborate and you really do not have to spend a lot of money on equipment. And it doesn't take going to a weight loss spa or a weight loss clinic. Start by walking everyday. Walking is the best and easiest form of exercise that anyone can do. Walk to places that you would normally drive to and you will find that you have more stamina than before.
Step 2Eat more fruits and vegetables. Fast food has taken over most of our daily eating habits. Instead of that 600 calorie burger for lunch, opt for fresh fruits and vegetables.
Step 3Get plenty of rest. If you find yourself staying up late to watch something on TV, or the kids are up late, start getting everyone in a routine of going to bed earlier at night. Kids under to age of 10 should be in bed no later that 9pm, which should give most parents enough time to get ready for and be in bed at 10:30pm. This will give the average person around 6 to 8 hours of sleep every night. Continue this routine on weekends too.
