9 Things That Will DESTROY Weight Loss For Women Over 40 –

We all get to choose the food we eat – that’s the best part about

being an adult. Nobody can tell us we can’t. But, what happens when the belly starts bulging and the pounds keep packing on?

Even if it feels like nothing has changed, as we age, our metabolism starts slowing down and

parts that seemed easy to target aren’t anymore. Our shape and form

begins to take on a life of its own and, if we aren’t careful, this can lead to obesity.

Information is power. It is best to know what food

we can and can’t have after 40. Here’s a list we’ve come up with to help

you stay in the shape that you want.

1# Soda

Must we even go into details with this one? Not only is it high in

sugar, but the chemicals found in the beverage are said to cause cancer.

It is also associated with infertility and having the drink regularly

in your diet may cause you to have difficulty in conception. If wanting a

big family, remove this unhealthy drink completely from your diet.

2# Sugar

You need to expect that after you reach the age of 40, things will

start to change in your body, including your skin. You slow down in your

production of collagen and the protein called elastin, which keeps your

skin firm, begins the break down process. You start to see the

formation of fine lines in the most common areas, like around the eyes,

and even wrinkles. No wrinkle cream can completely eradicate the

changes.

It is not possible to stop aging, but it is good to know what could

slow down the process in the body. Sugar is the number one enemy. It has

been awarded first place in hastening the promotion of sagging and

wrinkling. Now, you might have removed the obvious sugary food from your

diet, but be aware. It hides in some of the food items we believe to be

healthy. Some examples are flavored yoghurt and ketchup. It is best to

take a look at the ingredient content section of the items you purchase

and stick to those low in sugar.

3# Canned Soup

Canned food items contain a great amount of sodium in them – around

40% of the daily recommended allowance in just one serving. That’s a

lot. Research has found a connection between skin aging and high blood

pressure. So, it is safe to assume that the lower your blood pressure

the better your skin condition will be. It won’t hurt to take an

inventory of what canned items you have stocked up and maybe donate what

you don’t need. Switch to the natural food items for better skin

health.

4# Beers and Cocktails

As we age, the body changes and so does the way we metabolize the

food and drinks we ingest. Two things can happen after an alcohol binge.

Firstly, have you noticed that after drinking it gets harder to have a

good night’s rest? That’s the result of the alcohol in your body. That

could have been okay in your 20’s, but not anymore. Second, after an

alcohol binge you look for a sugar fix. Getting drunk can lead you to

snacking the day after which can then bring on weight gain.

In your 40’s, you need to be more cautious about how much you drink to keep the figure you want.

5# White Bread

Brown is better! Choose multi-grain bread and bagels to start up your

day. Why? Well, the body converts refined carbohydrates from white

bread into glucose which can cause fine lines and wrinkles to form in

your skin. We definitely don’t want that. Choosing the whole grain

version can help you keep your blood sugar levels low and promotes

proper digestion which leads to a healthier and slimmer body.

6# Diet Soda and Sugar-Free Snacks

If you’ve been noticing a build-up in your middle section, then it

might be high time to re-evaluate your diet. Studies have shown that

artificial sweeteners can cause this to happen. To establish a healthier

diet, remove all sugar-free drinks and snacks you patronize so much and

switch to healthier food sources that give you the natural nutrients

you need to keep your body fit, lean and healthy.

7# Iced Coffee

Coffee, in essence, is found to be good for the body. It gives us

energy for our day and promotes a healthy metabolism. However, having

too much of caffeine can cause us to lose sleep which is essential for

our bodies to recharge and rebuild. This stress induced by a lack of

sleep can cause fine lines and wrinkles to develop. You know your body

better than anyone. Have the right amount of coffee per day that your

body can take. What’s even better is for you to substitute it with the

nutrient rich green tea which is a natural detoxifier for the body.

8# Margarine

This butter-alternative is recommended by doctors as a better option,

but the truth is, it isn’t really. Margarine is high in trans-fatty

acids which heighten the possibilities of a heart attack. It also

contributes to the body’s bad cholesterol levels and reduces the ability

of our immune system to function right. On top of that, it can also

lead to the improper aging process of the skin by making it more

vulnerable to the sun’s ultraviolet rays. A much better option for the

health conscious is to use olive oil as a butter alternative. We all

know that it contains healing properties which will definitely benefit

the body.

9# Bacon

To all bacon lovers out there, listen up. This favorite breakfast

food should no longer be part of your diet at this point of your life.

Why? Bacon is composed of 68% fat. YUP! And half of that is saturated

which can cause the skin to sag. There’s more. The fat content promotes

weight gain and even increases the risk of heart disease. Studies show

that bacon, along with other processed food, contains sodium nitrate

which can cause changes in the structure of collagen and elastin in the

body which may result in wrinkles. Yikes! Time to be careful and stay

away from the fatty food that you love so much.
