Why is weight loss so much harder as you get older? 

Why is it that now that you’re in your 30’s, 40’s, or 50’s, that old diet just doesn’t work anymore? You literally have to STARVE to lose any weight, and you probably have noticed you have also lost muscle as well!


Well there are lots of reasons, and it’s not always to do with what’s on your plate (although that plays a big part!). 

Many factors can affect your weight and lead to being overweight or obesity. Some of these factors may make it hard for you to lose weight. 

Many factors can make it hard to lose weight, including your genes, what and how much you eat. Not getting regular physical activity or being inactive, taking certain medicines and having certain medical conditions like low testosterone

Those who are most successful at losing weight after 30, do it when they have a very clear reason why they want to do it. Maybe you've been watching the scale creep up a pound or two every year and are ready to nix bad habits, or you've been given a wake-up call by your doctor that it's time to get serious about how your weight is impacting your overall health. “You need to have a mental awakening that puts you in a state of readiness to change. If you’re not engaged mentally, it’s not happening.

All of the above is very important, but if your hormones are not at an optimal level, your battle to lose weight is greatly compromised. At Physical Male, we understand the desire to lose weight and our proven program is here to maximize your efforts.
