Let's Talk Metabolism Magic after the age 40 ... And beyond.

As we gracefully age, metabolism may need a little TLC.

Fear not!

Discover the art of portion control and balanced meals to keep that energy flowing.

Your body, your rules!

Our 40s are the start of early mid-life. Famous for being a bit of a roller-coaster, this decade can bring lots of satisfying experiences, which may include:

  • Gaining confidence; more willingness to say ‘yes’ to what you really want and ‘no’ to the stuff you don’t.

  • New, exciting levels of career development or professional success. Maybe even the guts to take some risks and try things you were afraid to do before.

  • Deepening relationships with loved ones, possibly including children.

For some people this can be a time of personal growth. When it comes to health and fitness, that may mean improving healthy habits, devoting more time and energy to de-stressing, or fine-tuning some routines that will you allow you juggle all those balls in the air.

Meanwhile, you may feel great physically. (Especially if you’re active and taking care of yourself.) It’s still very possible to kick ass in your 40s!

The challenging stuff:

Chickens are coming home to roost. Your earlier choices are starting to show long-term effects.

You may really be noticing the effects of a slower metabolism, sarcopenia (age-related muscle loss) and changing body now.

You may notice things like:

  • Minor aches and pains becoming more persistent.

  • Small nagging health problems, or things taking longer to heal.

  • Reduced levels of many hormones (such as thyroid or sex hormones).

  • Having a harder time building strength / muscle, or losing fat; shifts in where you store your body fat.

  • Declining athletic performance (even if you’re awesome, you probably won’t be competitive against 20-year-olds at the elite levels).

  • NEW Food sensitivities and intolerances.

If you’re female, you may be noticing some early ups and downs of perimenopause, the period before menopause when hormone levels decline and/or become a little more erratic. (For some women, this process can start in their 30s.)

If you’re male, you’re likely noticing lower testosterone.

Regardless of gender, you may have had one or more good old-fashioned mid-life crisis where you questioned your priorities along with your beliefs about yourself and the world. (On the upside, you have that shiny new sports car in the driveway.)

Your best health habits right now!

In your 40s, you may find that you need to:

Keep adjusting your caloric intake as your metabolism continues to slow down.

  • Spend more time on strength / resistance training to slow muscle loss as well as to maintain insulin sensitivity (which helps regulate blood sugar and prevent Type 2 diabetes).

  • Spend more time on mobility, “pre-hab” types of activities, warming up, and active recovery.

  • Consider your nutrition more carefully. That can mean focusing more on quality food choices and prevention of chronic disease, including: - nutrient-rich foods such as colorful fruits and vegetables. - a wide range of food types that cover the nutritional bases.

  • nutrient-rich foods such as colorful fruits and vegetables.

  • a wide range of food types that cover the nutritional bases.

  • Eliminate certain foods that now bother you, while adding others that help control inflammation (such as foods rich in omega-3 fatty acids).

  • Supplement with a good probiotic as digestion starts to change.

  • Practice mindful eating in the midst of life’s whirlwind.

Excited for your metabolic magic makeover,
