Healthy And Fit At Any Age

We all know that the body undergoes many changes as our age. Changes that occur due to changes in lifestyle, diet, and also changes in metabolic rate. Actually what is needed by the body at the age of 20, 30, and 40 to stay healthy and fit? Here is the answer you need...

Age 20s

20s is the age that has the highest metabolic rate where they will enter adult life. The period in which a person starts to enter the workforce with the possibility of spending more time behind a desk so that body starts to lose muscle mass. That results in decreased metabolism because muscle burns calories 3-4 times faster than fat.

According to one study, the most common mistake made is a diet without exercising. It will only slow down the metabolic rate so that it is also important to eat lots of calcium to help the body become fitter.

We are advised to consume at least 1000 mg of calcium per day, ideally derived from foods such as milk and yogurt in addition to exercising at least three times a week for 30 minutes.

Age 30s

Sport at this age is not a priority, especially in women, because most women this age care job or her baby. And if we do not exercise regularly will be able to result in loss of approximately one kilogram of muscle mass every year which will be converted into fat

Other studies have also shown that exercise can help improve the metabolism of about 80 to 150 calories per day. A diet rich in protein can also increase the energy to burn calories.

Age 40s

At this age, metabolism began to slightly decrease and the natural forces began to disappear if we do not keep it began at the age of 30. But do not be discouraged because we can increase the metabolism at any age.

To stay in shape at age 40, the body needs less than 120 calories per day to maintain weight than when our 20s. The level of activity began to decline at this level, so try to be more often on foot. Also, be sure to keep eating lean protein, fruits and vegetables, and exercise to speed up the metabolic rate.
