There is a big difference in how you maintain and manage your weight in your 20’s and 30’s, compared to your 40’s. Even if you’re an active person all your life, losing weight after 40 can feel like an uphill battle!
When you are younger, you can eat whatever you want but still manage to fit in your favorite jeans, even after a weekend of binge eating. There are stark differences in the way you consume and enjoy food as you age and in the way your body digests and breaks it down.
