4 simple eating habits that help you lose weight after 40

The body naturally changes with age, which can make losing weight and keeping it off a bit challenging. However, there are many ways to stay lean and fit after 40, including taking Phentermine 37.5mg and making smart food choices. Review eating habits diet experts recommend for the post-40 crowd to help your efforts. 

Eat Plenty of Protein

Ensure you are ingesting enough protein every day. 

“Muscle mass tends to decrease as we age,” says registered dietitian Abby Sauer, MPH, RD. “Researchers have shown we stand to lose as much as 8% of our muscle mass per decade starting in our 40s and this pace accelerates after age 70.” 

Plan Your Meals

Start planning your meals for the week if you haven’t already.

“Being on the go with hectic schedules makes it challenging to get healthy meals and snacks,” says Sauer, “so try keeping healthy options handy to avoid choosing fast food or options high in fat or calories.”

Take Care of Your Immune System

Being healthy means being full of energy, which helps you work out longer and harder.

“Make sure to get essential vitamins and minerals like vitamin C, D, B12, and zinc through foods like oranges, leafy greens, peppers, strawberries, salmon, tuna, fortified yogurt, and milk,” says Sauer.

Try Fasting

Intermittent fasting can help you reach your weight loss goals. 

“Weight loss is attributed to the decrease in food while the immune benefits are from specific cellular processes that occur,” says Trista Best, MPH, RD, LD, “and damaged cells are more easily removed from the body during this time as the digestive tract can focus on this process alone as the immune system is essentially reset.”
