After 30’s you have to monitor carefully what you eat when you go out. Go for natural fresh squeezed fruit juice and forget about pizza. Avoid the fast food restaurants and restrict eating junk food to once every 15 days.
Try and avoid fizzy drinks and the munchies coming hand in hand with them: Pringles, salty snacks and anything that you might nibble while hanging out with friends.
Fresh fruit is the recommended snack when you must have one. Light yoghurt and sugar free fruit salads are the right way to go for desert.
Between 30’s and 50’s comes the maternity age. Whether you are a mother or not, in a relationship or not, the age and the biological factors influence your figure.
The 40’s make us more open to gravity attraction and gives us a lot less motivation to stay in shape.
Married girls tend to share the passion for food of their partners but unlike us the men need 2400 calories / day, while by that age we need only half.
Cooking is something most of us like to do around this age so there is no wonder that we would want to enjoy the food we prepare. However, it is recommendable to cook using only healthy ingredients. Focus on using olive oil, fresh vegetables and reduce the meat and fat cheese intake.
The deserts you bake for your young will conquer your heart but keep in mind to only taste them and leave the rest for kids. Sweets at this age can do a lot of damage.
The drastic diets you plan to follow around 40’s are not the solution. They will only starve you and if you want to lose the extra weight a nutritionist is the only person with the authority to teach you how to eat.
Keep in mind that without sport the battle with the kilograms is lost.
The 50’s come with the menopause. Along the many issues it comes with this means that the body is no longer firm and shaped and every little excess will show on the body line.
The right way to keep in shape is eat less and consider walking. The appetite grows with the hormonal change and you tend to enjoy sweet treats and heavy meals more than you used too. Replace the temptations with fruit and light dairy.
Choose organic foods as much as possible and introduce calcium supplements in your diet.
The bottom line is that our body ages while our food habits change. We can enjoy treats and be beautiful provided we make a habit of keeping a balance between the two.
