Our bodies change as we age

As our bodies age, it becomes harder for us to lose extra pounds. Our metabolism slows down because our bodies want to hold on to those pounds in preparation of a famine. It is a throw back to harder times and is genetically programed into us. It is just like getting gray hair and age spots, it is something that cannot be avoided. What you can do is learn to eat a balanced diet, drink plenty of fluids and get at least 30 minutes of exercise a day.
