Ladies: Do This To Keep Metabolism High After 35

As women age, many of us will tell ourselves that putting on more and more weight is just inevitable because older age always means lower metabolism. And for many women this does ring true, but the real reason why is often never fully explained – and the reason why has to do with gradual muscle loss that occurs with age if you don’t practice a healthy lifestyle.
Now interestingly enough, there is a proven way to slow and even totally prevent muscle loss that occurs with age, and the way you do it is very simple and involves just making slight tweaks to your diet and workout plan. End result: Your metabolism stays high, no matter how old you get! Ready to learn what those 2 tiny diet and exercise tweaks are?
1. Eat (a good) breakfast. Yes, Every. Single. Day. If you don’t, your body goes into starvation mode (it’s paranoid like that), so your metabolism slows to a crawl to conserve energy.
2. Use Interval Training. You’re always looking for a way to shorten your workout, right? Well, step up your intensity and you’ll burn the same number of calories or more in less time.
3. Don’t forget To Sleep. Yes, sleep. When you sleep less than you should, you throw off the amounts of leptin and ghrelin—hormones that help regulate energy use and appetite—that your body produces.
