Getting into shape for summer can be rough going – especially after 40. Gaining weight becomes easier, losing weight becomes harder, and pulling off your shirt at the beach just doesn’t have the same effect it did 20 years ago.
For those over 40 wanting to get into shape, all is not lost. By making key changes in your eating and exercise habits, you, too, can have a body worth showing off.
How Should You Eat?
What you eat and when you eat are important after 40, if you want to get into shape. Avoid simple carbs like sugar, white flour, and white rice, and instead eat complex carbs like whole grains, oatmeal, and legumes.
Drink water throughout the day (it’s necessary to burn fat) and be cognizant of the amount of calories you consume. Of course, if you’re anything like Ellen DeGeneres, and you’d “rather have cinnamon buns than buns of steel,” well, you do you, boo.
What About Exercise?
How you exercise will have a large impact on how much weight you lose and also how quickly you lose it. If you think jumping on a treadmill for an hour or going for a nice long jog is going to suffice – you might want to think again. Long cardio sessions may have been enough to keep you in shape when you were younger, but it’s going to take more than that to be beachready post 40.
Incorporate resistance training as well as medium bouts of cardio to build muscle while losing fat. If you’re still in decent shape, you can add in HIIT (high-intensity interval training) into your workout regimen to torch fat.
What About Changes in Your Skin?
