“When you reach middle age, you gain weight”.
This phrase has accompanied us for generations, and it comes from the idea that after 40 years of age men and women increase their body weight by about 10/12 kilos.
Good news! Nowadays, we can easily keep this fear at bay, in the knowledge that it is possible to keep the situation under control and manage all the changes that happen to our body when years pass by.
Ultimately, it’s about “investing in ourselves” since a young age and to accept the idea that some excesses, at a certain age, are no longer tolerated by our body. The reason is simple: metabolism slows down, venous and lymphatic circulation bring less nourishment and oxygen to the tissues, the stress of a hectic life starts to become chronic and, over time, a worse quality of sleep takes energy away from physical activity.
