There is something about the magic number of 40 when our bodies seem to accumulate fat faster than they ever did before, even though we might be following the same workout ritual and diet plan as we have for years. The reason behind this scenario is that your metabolic rate reduces significantly as you gain on in years. However, whether you are 40 or even past it, there are a number of ways to shed those pounds.
1. Continue working out to bring the metabolic rate up
Age makes our muscles lose their buildup, which consequently leads to a reduction in our metabolic rates. Keeping up the muscle mass can help our metabolism improve and that is only possible through maintaining a daily workout regimen that not only energizes our body but also makes our metabolic function better, ensuring that a higher number of calories are burned in the process.
