Reasons to Create a Weight Loss Plan Now
There are a few physical changes that occur around your 50th year that you should be aware of so that you can work around and combat them.
Typically, our metabolisms slow about 5% each decade.
While that's not an encouraging stat, there's an easy way around allowing this metabolic slowdown affecting your weight!
Consciously reduce the number of calories you intake and increase your cardio so that you offset your metabolism's gradual decline.
When we get over 50, our bones become more fragile because new bone formation slows down.
According to UC San Diego Health, “roughly one in four men over age 50 will break a bone due to osteoporosis.”
Even if you haven't broken a bone, it's a good idea to look into preventative measures like a bone density scan.
And, fun fact, regular exercise can help prevent bone breaks by making your muscles and bones stronger!
As you may know, men have a higher risk of having a heart attack than women do.
While the average age for a heart attack if you're a man is at age 64, the time is now to prepare your ticker.
Physical activity and a healthy diet are the best ways to make sure your heart is healthy. Cutting out excess salt is also necessary.
Just like the rest of your body, your libido changes as you age as well.
Men tend to fear the possibility that their erections will become less frequent and harder to sustain.
While this may occur, the last thing you should do is add anxiety in the mix.
Instead, make sure that you are not contributing to lower libido in any of the following ways: obesity, diabetes, high cholesterol, high blood pressure.
