I know that you’re concerned about what may seem like a tanking metabolism.

My clients are always asking what they can do to speed up their metabolism so they can burn more fat and lose that spare tire around their waists.

So, I’ll give you my top tips here on what to do and more specifically, what NOT to do:

 

The Metabolism Do’s

Tip #1 – Build Muscle!

shawna-same-pic-female_liftin_dumbellstop

I cannot stress the need for lean muscle mass more.

You NEED to add resistance training to your life NOW!

You will NOT become overly muscular with resistance training with your body weight or with actual weights.

You dont have the correct hormones to build bulging muscles very easily.

With resistance training, you will maintain your current mass at the very least, and hopefully you’ll add a few pounds of muscle.

shawna-guy-lifting-weights

Muscle burns calories and keeps the metabolism stoked!

Without resistance training, you can lose up 1-2% of muscle every decade.

This can equal 10-15 lbs.

The odd thing with this is that NO ONE actually loses weight when they lose muscle mass; the weight is just replaced with fat.

Fat is dead weight and it requires little energy to maintain.

Tip #2 – HIIT!

shawna-hiit-workout30secb

High intensity interval training is your key to metabolism boosting and fat loss.

You need to STOP the long slow boring cardio.

Instead, you need to add cardio that is short and intense in duration.

By short I mean you can get an effective fat burning workout in 15 minutes.

By intense, I mean by the end of the 15 minutes you really need to feel like you’ve run a marathon.

HIIT is not for the faint of heart.

shawna-hiit

Clearly if you want to look like you never have, you have to try things you’ve never done.

As your fitness level improves, you need to keep increasing the intensity (but not the time!) on the HIIT that you do.

For example, at the start, it may be difficult for you to do a 20 walk/10 sec jog set for 5 minutes.

If this starts to get easy, then you need to increase the speed on the jog to a 70% sprint and increase your walk to a jog on the 20 sec active recovery phase.

My point here is that you must always provide a challenge for yourself and your body will rise to the challenge and you’ll get the results that you’re looking for.

 

 

 

 

 

The Metabolism Don’t’s

Tip #1 – Stop Dieting


shawna-stop-dieting1

If you tend to gain weight at the drop of a hat, this is an indication that your body is in survival mode and it is trying to store those calories away for the impending famine (that never comes).

You need to build your metabolism and feed your body nutritionally dense food at regular intervals so that you can coax it out of this starvation mode.

Don’t think that you’ll lose more weight by eating less and less.

Your body just gets more effective at managing to function on fewer calories.

You won’t feel your best and you won’t lose the weight you want for all this suffering.

Tip #2 – Don’t Burn the Midnight Oil

shawn-midnight-oilfire

Your body can react to even moderate sleep deprivation the same way it does with a severe calorie deficit.

Cortisol levels increase and you can become more insulin resistant.

This means that your body tends to store energy rather than burning it, so you hold onto your fat.

Your leptin levels are also affected.

Leptin is an appetite suppressing hormone and your appetite can get out of control when it’s in short supply.

To add to this, serotonin and dopamine levels drop and you will crave carbohydrates.

Is it any wonder you can’t lose any weight when you’re sleep deprived?

Who would have thought that sleep is the answer to sustainable weight loss?

shawna-sleep

If sleep is an issue for you, you could try a natural sleep aid called melatonin.

As we age, we have less naturally occurring melatonin; it helps us get into the deeper levels of sleep that makes us feel more rested.

You could try 0.5 – 3.0 mg supplement taken an hour before bed. It helps you feel drowsy and aids overall sleep quality.

There you have it, four tips to boost your metabolism: build muscle, add interval training, eat nutritious food and get some rest.

In truth, these things will always be a ‘work in progress’ but we can certainly make efforts to improve our overall lifestyle to set ourselves up for a stoked metabolism.

Does Menopause Cause Weight Gain?

I get a lot of questions from my clients.

Since we all tend to experience similar issues,  I thought it would be helpful to address five of the most common questions I get:

shawna-real_women_lift_weights_


Does Menopause Cause Weight Gain?


No, menopause can’t be blamed solely for weight gained at this time. What’s often the culprit is the sedentary lifestyle that occurs in the decade prior to menopause. Your body is slowing trading muscle for fat. Muscle is metabolically active calorie burning tissue as opposed to fat that is dead weight. So as you lose muscle, you’ll get fatter eating less food and this is why many complain that they are eating less and still gaining weight. It just seems to catch up with you and is noticed in our forties.


Does Metabolism Actually Slow Down At Menopause?

shawna-1

Sedentary men at this age can also experience a similar gain in weight and slow down in metabolism so it’s not menopause per se that’s the reason for a tanking metabolism. Studies show that for those that are sedentary, there can be a 1-2% loss of lean muscle mass per decade or 10-15 lbs which is replaced by fat. As I said before, fat doesn’t burn calories the same way that muscle does, so having a higher fat to muscle ratio will result in a slower metabolism. This is why it’s SO important to remain active through out your 30’s so that you don’t lose lean muscle mass.



What’s Happening With Hormones That May Affect Weight Gain?

42-16780594

One theory is that the ovaries are producing less estrogen. Fat cells actually produce estrogen, so the body works a little harder to convert calories to fat to generate more estrogen. Also, following a low fat and high carbohydrate diet heavy on refined and processed foods may make your body insulin resistant. When this happens, when ever you eat carbohydrates, your body is more likely to turn those calories into fat as opposed to using those calories for energy.


When A Women Reaches Menopause, Is It Really Harder To Lose Weight?

shawna-healthyseniors

It can be harder but it’s always possible to lose weight at this age. More commitment is needed as we get older.  More intensity with exercise is needed and more dedication with proper diet important. I want to point out that it’s not necessary to train longer, your workouts need to be the same length but more intense.


What’s The Best Way To Slow Down Or Reverse This Process?

shawna-anti-aging

Start Resistance Training Immediately

shawna-exercising-at-sr-center

You’d be surprised to hear that body weight only training is one of the safest and most effective ways to increase and maintain muscle mass in women in this age category. By adding some muscle and maintaining the muscle that you already have, you will preserve and even elevate your metabolism as you age. And don’t think for a minute that you’ll get that overly developed muscular look-if only adding muscle was that easy. Your hormonal make up is not such that this is even possible. Lift weights and lift as heavy as you can and you’ll still only add modest amounts of this good stuff.


There you have it, five of the most common questions that I get asked.

If you want to make some positive changes in your physique and minimize the effects that Mother Nature will bestow on you with your sedentary lifestyle, you can check out my e-book, Female Fat Loss Over Forty. It’s not too late to make positive changes in your appearance and feel better.
