It's amazing the amount of times I hear "I used to be able to eat anything I wanted and never put on weight." I catch my partner looking back at old pictures of himself and reminiscing about the days when he used to eat a loaf of bread for breakfast and still maintain that washboard stomach (boys!!!). As we get older, metabolism decline is very normal and thats why we tend to notice a slight expansion of the waistline in our late 20's and early 30's even though our lifestyles haven't necessarily changed. This can be quite shocking for people who have lived the last 30 odd years eating and drinking whatever they wanted and to make matters worse, metabolism decline can also mean that extra 'cushion' that used to come off with a 3 day juice cleanse, can be a lot harder to budge.
So here it is... ACT NOW because when you start noticing a difference in your body, it's going to be so much harder to change your lifestyle suddenly then it will be to make gradual changes from today. If you added three strength training sessions to your weekly routine, you would actually increase your metabolic rate meaning your body would be more efficient at burning calories (yes please!) I'm not talking about bulking up like Arnie, but getting toned, lean muscles that are achievable with regular exercise. The long term effects of exercise are also going to have a huge impact in combatting the effects of aging such as improving heart health and reducing the risk of diabetes, metabolic conditions and arthritis. If you aren't already convinced, I can tell you now that the short terms effects aren't too bad either. Would you mind having an increase in energy, improved mood and a decrease in stress and anxiety levels? That's enough to keep me going back for more :-)
