Weight Loss Advice For Women


As we get older things naturally start to slow down


And it becomes more and more important that women exercise to combat this


If you are someone who has trained for most of their life then you have a good base to help with this


But for those who haven’t, now is even more important that you find the right exercise and nutritional program for you


With significant changes in hormones, metabolism, energy levels…. It can be tough and fatigue is a huge reason why some women cannot get going to stick to a plan


One of the most significant changes is the way our metabolism functions


Understanding this is essential in putting together an effective weight loss plans as well as getting the right guidance and advice


In this post we break down each section and take you through understanding your metabolism as well as the steps you can take to help you on your weight loss journey


Understanding Metabolism


Metabolism is the process through which your body converts what you eat and drink into energy


This energy is used to sustain a host bodily function, even when you are at rest


As we age, particularly after the age of 35, the metabolic rate tends to slow down, which can often lead to weight gain


Factors Affecting Metabolism


Several factors influence your metabolic rate, including genetics, muscle mass, and hormonal changes


As women cross the age of 35, hormonal fluctuations become more prominent, which can significantly affect the metabolic rate


Being aware of these factors can provide valuable weight loss advice to women navigating this phase of life


Muscle mass is also a huge factor in your basic metabolic rate and one of the reason why strength based training is heavily promoted for women who are peri-menopausal and menopausal


Dietary Adjustments


One of the primary strategies for adapting to metabolic changes is modifying your food intake


Incorporating a balanced diet rich in nutrients can aid in maintaining a healthy metabolic rate


80% of your daily intake should be consumed by single ingredient foods


These are foods such as


Fruits

Vegetables

Lean Meats

Grains

Legumes

Beans

Nuts and Seeds


This is to ensure you get in sufficient nutrients from your daily food intake


Water and Weight Loss


Hydration plays a vital role in maintaining a healthy metabolism


Drinking sufficient water can help in boosting your metabolic rate, aiding in weight loss


We recommend at least 3 litres of water per day


Lack of water can also affect;


Energy

Digestion

Sleep

Concentration

Recovery

Mood

Understanding Hormonal Changes


As women age, they experience a series of hormonal changes that can often lead to weight gain


Understanding these changes and how they affect your body can provide insightful weight loss advice
