4 weight loss-friendly eating habits for those over 40

The body naturally changes with age, which can result in weight gain unless the right lifestyle adjustments are made. To help you lose weight after the age of 40, review the following tips from diet experts. 

Boost Your Metabolism With Coffee or Tea

Drinking coffee or tea in the morning helps your metabolism function efficiently. 

“Caffeine elevates metabolism by increasing thermogenesis via its effects on brown adipose tissue,” says Ellie Busby, MSc, mBANT, a registered nutritionist. 

Develop a Regular Eating Schedule

Maintaining a meal routine is essential, as seeing how little you can eat does nothing for weight loss.

“Threatening that basic need [food stresses out the body; instead of burning body fat, you can potentially hold onto fat cells and send your body into a protective, premature plateau,” notes Lisa Moskovitz, RD.

Plan Ahead When Going Out

Going out for dinner and drinks with friends can threaten weight loss efforts.

“Your best bet is to review the menu in advance and determine, based on your intake for the day, what you’ll be eating. It is okay to leave room for dessert, if you know your friends like to order it, but recommend sharing one dessert with one or two other people,” says Toby Amidor, MS, RD, CDN. 

Eat Protein in the Morning

Protein-rich breakfast meals are another key to losing weight and maintaining your desired size.

“Scrambled, hard-boiled, or as an omelet, eggs are a great way to get protein for breakfast,” says Bess Berger, RDN. She also suggests smoothies with specific low-sugar ingredients: “I recommend adding 1 to 3 teaspoons of seeds to smoothies for healthy fats and a handful of kale or other leafy greens for more vitamins, antioxidants, and fiber.”
