Having A Hard Time Losing Weight After The Big 5-0?
Are you having a hard time losing weight since you hit the big 5-0, and it's becoming even more difficult every year? Has your get-up-and-go gotten up and gone? It’s not all in your head!
There are REAL biological changes that happen as part of the aging process that we can’t control that make it harder and harder to lose weight and cause fat to accumulate around our midsection, zapping our energy and depleting our memory and brain power. These biological changes can turn our once vibrant healthy body into an achy, vulnerable wreck unless we address the underlying issues, which is easier than you might think.
Here are the three simple steps everyone can and should be doing daily. These should be your top priority when it comes to your health, even if you just turned 30. Remember, prevention is always the best cure.
STEP #1: Take Action, Add Resistance
Everyone needs to lift weights twice per week to strengthen bones, and what most people don't realize is that lifting weights a certain way also helps our body to manufacture growth hormones that are the secret sauce when it comes to staying young physically and mentally.
Not all forms of exercise can do this, but lifting weights twice weekly (as in the Metabolic Boost and FIT in 5 LynFit Workouts) when combined with a high -protein diet (in a very specific way such as the metabolic boosting meal plans are laid out to enhance our body's ability to produce as much growth hormone as possible) keeps our metabolism functioning at optimal levels to promote fat loss, protect and strengthen bones and brain health, while making our skin wrinkle-free and glowing!
The best way to do this is...
STEP #2: Power Up with the Right Kind of Protein
LynFit's Metabolic Boosting Complete Protein that is! It's the cleanest and best tasting, it won’t hurt your stomach, and is 99.9 percent dairy-free, so even if you're lactose sensitive, you can drink it.
If you’re ready to boost your body's anti-aging abilities, in addition to your metabolism, with the most delicious protein shake you’ll ever try, this is the protein powder for you!
Regular food won't boost weight loss the same way LynFit Complete Protein Shake does. The Complete Protein Shake boosts metabolic function 25 percent, making it easier to lose weight and prevent weight gain. Egg whites, cereal, and oatmeal can actually slow weight loss due to our body's inability to digest and assimilate foods as we age, so these foods can begin to cause weight gain and therefore aren't the best option when it comes to losing weight.
Sure they are “healthy,” but after age 40, our metabolism begins to decline and needs the extra boost from here on out.
Not only do you need the right kind of protein that Complete Protein provides, but you also need the proper amount per serving, which is 20-24 grams (no more and no less). If you take in too much, you won't lose, and that’s where LynFit Complete Protein shines brightest. It’s the right kind of protein, in exactly the amount your body needs, and it's easier for our aging body to assimilate, which is why it will never cause you to gain weight.
When it comes to losing weight, LynFit Metabolic Boosting Complete Protein is the perfect protein for the job, and as evidenced by the video above, Russell with Tampa FOX13 agrees! He lost 15 pounds drinking the Complete Protein and lifting weights.
STEP #3: Boost Weight Loss with an Intermittent Fast (aka Metabolic Boosting Liquid Brunch)
What is intermittent fasting? It's an eating pattern that cycles between periods of fasting and eating that specifies when you eat. Intermittent fasting has been around for years (LynFit's plan has always used this method) because when it comes to weight loss, it works! It’s not a diet but rather a lifestyle choice that anyone can do, and everyone should do.
Some of the benefits of intermittent fasting are accelerated fat burning, lowered blood sugar levels, protection against diseases, improved memory and brain function and anti-aging, just to name a few.
There are different intermittent fasting methods, but there is such a thing as taking a good thing too far. If you don’t fast long enough every night, your blood sugar levels won’t become low enough to make a difference or boost weight loss. I suggest fasting for a minimum of 12 hours every night as a starting point, and if you're over 50 years old (male and female) and your weight loss and fat burning need a boost, you can fast for 13-14 hours (max). It's imperative that you break the fast with a metabolic boosting protein shake to nourish your body with the protein it needs to preserve lean muscle tissue, so your metabolism doesn’t slow down.
If you fast too long, your metabolism will begin to slow, so there is a fine line. Find yours, and it's okay to be hungry. If you fast too long and become ravenous, fast for 12 hours, and if you want to see your abs, skip carbs at night, even when you fast.
I can personally tell you that combining a 12-hour intermittent fast and breaking it with a metabolic boosting protein shake was life-changing and made a big difference for me. I lost weight and kept it off because I knew what and when to eat. I could focus on life versus what to eat and food all the time. I didn’t realize that my food needed boundaries (when and what to eat and when to stop eating), so I wasn’t eating all day, and food wasn't keeping me up late eating all night.
If you're trying to lose weight and you're over 50, you need these 1-2-3 boost steps to jump-start your weight loss and burn off that stubborn belly fat!
