Many people work hard to lose weight, because as you age, weight gain begins to increase. Obesity is a major cause of many illnesses. This is why it is important that you keep the weight down as you age. New research at the Karolinska Institute in Sweden has revealed a new phenomenon, as lipids production in fat tissues decreases and weight gains easily as a person grows older. This research was published in the journal Nature Medicine. The scientists completed this research in 13 years. In the meantime, fat cells were studied in 54 men and women. It showed a decrease in lipid production in fat tissue.
The body uses calories in many ways as it ages. A person is maintaining his diet as before but as age increases the body will reduce calorie intake which is one of the reasons for weight gain.
It is important to change your diet as you age, to prevent weight gain and to maintain weight. That is to include fewer calories in the diet.
You should eat less food at night and walk after eating. Do not eat slowly as it will make you constantly hungry. Do regular exercise.
Research has shown that with increasing age, the deficiency of lipid production in fat tissue in the body is one of the major causes of increase in body fat or weight gain.
Changes in hormones
Hormones in your body change with age, which can lead to weight gain. Decrease in testosterone secretion in men leads to increased body fat levels. When women gain weight due to imbalances of estrogen and progesterone.
Increase-reduction in metabolism
After the age of 40-50, your metabolism fluctuates. Metabolism begins to decline in most people at an early age, causing your weight or fat to rise.
