4 Eating Habits To Avoid After 40 - Drtohelp.com
The right eating habits are essential to a lean body, especially after you turn 40. The metabolism naturally slows, though there is plenty you can do to keep yours active. In addition to exercising and taking Phentermine 37.5mg, try adopting the following habits:
Don’t Drink Every Night
Those nightly glasses of wine add up quickly.
“It’s easy to grab a glass of wine or a beer after a long day especially when dealing with the added pressures of life that come in our 40’s,” notes registered holistic nutritionist Pamela Barton. “However, our bodies process alcohol less efficiently as we get so regular drinking will increase fat stores and can contribute to a fatty liver.”
Avoid Late-Night Eating
While it is important to eat if you are truly hungry at night, “late” meals should not become frequent.
“If you are seeing your blood sugar trend upwards, eat fewer carbs at night and move them to the morning and early afternoon when your body can handle them better,” says Liz Weinandy. “Research is showing that late-night eating is really not good for us.”
Stop Yo-Yo Dieting
It can easily result in binging.
“Repeated attempts to lose weight can be more harmful than just remaining at a higher weight,” says registered dietitian nutritionist Laura Krauza, MS, LDN. “Studies have reinforced the connection between dieting to lose weight and weight cycling and suggest that yo-yo dieting most strongly predicts future weight gain.”
Refine That Sugar Habit
Refined sugar is the enemy of fast weight loss.
“If you like carbs, switch to more complex carbohydrates, such as sweet potatoes, whole oats, brown rice, and quinoa,” says Krauza. “Skip the breads and baked goods as much as you can.”
