Losing weight after 40 is tantamount to pull your wisdom teeth. It can be done but it's not easy. The tricks you used at 20 no longer applies to your changing metabolism by 40. There are measures you can take but to lose weight and keep it off. Some simple strategies that do not involve fasting yo-yo dieting or depriving yourself of good food is a must at this stage of life
Eat dinner early. Yes it is not always possible. It is usually possible to eat until 7 at night though. You should find that you will slowly begin to drop weight.
Resist fast food restaurants. You have twice the duties you had when you were younger. Finding time to prepare a healthy meal is challenging at best. With day fat and carbohydrates packed into a fast food burger that will not satisfy you anyway it's worth it to "just say no." If you must eat on the fly choose a salad.
Drinking water. Soft drinks are extremely high in sodium and sugar. This could not have had a major impact on your weight when you were younger. Continue to drink them by 40 and you will notice a subtle weight gain as time passes. Throw them. Instead now for refreshing hydrating and calorie-free water.
Exercise. It can not be stressed enough. It is important to take with weights or resistance training to exercise especially if you are female. Weight training will improve bone density and muscle tone. Quick trips or a short cardiovascular exercise at least three times a week will also keep your heart healthy. You will find that you have more energy. The increase in your metabolism will lose weight after 40 much easier.
Get enough rest. Depriving yourself of sleep and your hormones will be wise to tell your brain that you are hungry. Proper amounts of sleep will regulate hormone levels in your body. You will find yourself losing weight easily if you get your beauty sleep.
