I received an email last week asking me how we can avoid gaining weight as we age. The person who wrote me is about to turn 30 and she’s been told that after 30, people gain weight… I myself have heard this many many many times. I can’t tell you how many articles I’ve read on the subject of gaining weight as we age.
I’ve also done quite a bit of research on senior citizens who take up body building and competitive sports later in life. You have to see them, a lot of them are in better shape than most 20 year olds!! Many of them appear 20-30 years younger than they really are!!
My conclusion– yes, we can gain weight as we age, especially if we eat more and move less, but we can also be the exception, we can choose to have the most incredibly hot body at any age– it’s your choice!!
