It’s not what you weigh that’s important. It’s how you feel. If you feel happy, healthy and toned that’s much better than being a slave to a number on a weighing scale. In fact, it isn’t really about how much you weigh at all; it is about how much of that weight is fat.
It’s not about being skinny or the amount you weighed when you were 20 years old, it is about being a healthy weight and having an appropriate ratio of muscle to body fat.
For the most part, the amount of body fat you have is influenced by lifestyle – the amount and types of food you eat, drinks you consume, exercise you do, how you handle stress etc. And this is good because..
You can change your body if you change your lifestyle.
As people age, they start to lose muscle tissue – which is why weight-bearing exercise is recommended in particular for the over 40s. This is important because muscles, which are denser than body fat, burn calories faster. So as our muscle mass reduces, we burn fewer calories which means that, if we don’t reduce our food and drink consumption or increase our exercise levels, we will increase our body fat.
