Weight loss after 40 is not a trick and doesn't require difficult dieting techniques. Some simple changes that you may never have considered, can make all the difference.
Everything seems to change after forty. Our weight goes up, energy goes down, midsection expands, even our outlook on life changes.
Some of us write this off to the natural aging process.
For others it may actually indicate a medical problem. But you don't have to accept these changes.
And losing weight after forty doesn't need to be difficult. True, it's a challenge. So here's a plan exclusively for those over 40.
1. Check for an underactive thyroid. Surprising, but hypothyroidism, or underactive thyroid, affects as many as 1 in 5 people over 40. And having an underactive thyroid is a major reason why you can't seem to lose weight over 40.
Symptoms of hypothyroidism include poor circulation, lack of energy, hair loss, constantly feeling cold, and, of course weight gain -
If you feel you may have this condition, contact your doctor and have a thyroid test performed. Try the natural supplement Milk Thistle too.
2. Eat several small meals each day. To maximize weight loss after 40, eat 3 small meals every day with high protein snacks between meals. This tricks your body into feeling satisfied rather than starved. You can eat larger portions at traditional meal time (breakfast, lunch, dinner) and smaller portions at snacks.
3 Get more sleep. For weight loss after 40, get a good night's sleep. 6 to 8 hours of it are key to losing weight. Hormone production is most active while you sleep. And lack of sleep causes hormone production to be disrupted -
It's harder it is to get a good night's sleep as you get older. And the less sleep you get, the more weight you gain. So take action to get more sleep -
4. Build more muscle to lose weight. The more muscle you have, the more calories you burn at rest. Consider this, each pound of additional muscle is shown to burn 30 -
Unfortunately, after turning 40 you gradually lose as much as 1 to 2 pounds of muscle each year. It's replaced with fat.
So what can you do? Exercise to gain muscle. Not aerobic, calorie burning exercise but strength training. Brief and intense workout routines work best. Exercise using weights, bands, straps and follow a muscle growth protocol like High Frequency Training from Chad Waterbury.
Building more muscle will combat age-
6. Eat fewer calories. Does fat make you fat? Or is it carbs? Actually, the plain truth is consuming more calories than you burn makes you fat. Weight loss after 40 is all about calories. (Although timing of carb consumption has a big effect).
Few men burn enough calories to warrant the amount they eat, and definitely not enough for weight loss. Weighing more than 200 lbs. for men over 45 probably indicates too much bodyfat. A man 5’11” tall weighing 215 lbs has a body mass index of 30 and technically is considered obese.
And when you're only guessing at the number of calories you consume, it's easy to be off. Being off by only 100 calories a day can keep you 6 to 10 pounds overweight.

Before starting a fat burning, muscle gaining program, you should assess your metabolic health. It’s as simple as taking your temperature. Body temperature reflects your state of metabolic health. Your average daytime temperature if you’re healthy is 98.6 degrees. If your average temperature is lower (97 degree range), then you probably have a lower than optimal metabolic state.
If your temperature is in the 96 degree range your metabolism may be reduced by 30-
Low metabolic energy can de-
You can fix your metabolism by increasing your food intake by 300-
Combine intermittent fasting with protein pulsing and you have the solution for hormone optimizing, fat burning, and muscle building…keys to weight loss after 40!
Losing fat while gaining muscle is in fact possible with The Renegade Diet! With the Renegade style of eating you can lose fat quickly, slow the aging process, optimize your hormone production naturally (less estrogen and cortisol, and more growth hormone and testosterone), improve your digestive system, and look and feel better than ever. Your beliefs about how you should eat may get turned upside down . . .
Low carb diets are the best for losing fat. False
High protein diets build more muscle and burn more fat. False
You should eat every 3 hours, 6 meals a day. False
Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. False
You need to cut calories and no carbs at night. False
Research indicates that all these assumptions are wrong. The Renegade Diet is a well researched and tested plan. A complete blueprint, easy to follow, no contradictory crap either. At less than $10 you can’t afford not to give it a try. The results are impressive! Especially when combined with the right muscle building plan. Blog post from a fitness model who diets this way.
In the spring of 2010 Chad Waterbury started experimenting with the Warrior Diet by Ori Hofmekler and it drastically changed the way he approached nutrition. Without the Warrior Diet and Chad's subsequent experiments with the diet, his clients wouldn't be as lean and healthy as they are today.
Waterbury Diet covers the nutritional strategies currently recommended for a fat loss program and gastrointestinal (GI) health.
The Waterbury Diet is similar enough to the original Warrior Diet that it's not right charging people money for it. However, Chad's approach is different enough to justify its own version.
