So this is one of those questions we get a lot from our clients, on how to maintain your weight that you had as a 25 years old when you are 55 years old.
So the answer is a program we call Cut 10% for every decade from 30 to 50 years.
Rick our founder came up with this CUT 10% solution in 2007 after studying clients weight gains over the years.
So basically what it means is that we know for a fact that our metabolism slows down quite a bit already at age 30.
So we have to keep that in mind going forward.
So when you can eat 3000 calories a day as a 27 year old man working a normal job where you have to use your body as a tool, you can not eat the same amount of 3000 calories at 37 to keep your body weight status Que.
So the way you solve this problem that we all go true over time with your body slowing down its metabolism, is that you cut 10% of your calories each decade for 3 decades.
So when you hit 30 years, you cut your daily calorie intake to 2700 calories from the 3000 calories that you consumed as a 29 year old.
Then when you hit 40 years of age you cut another 10% from the first 3000 calories to 2400 calories per day.
And then again at 50 years of age you cut it to 2100 calories per day.
So by working your way down this way on the calories you consume, you avoid getting that belly in your 30s.
Training is an important part of your daily routine, and regardless if it is walking or gym training you are allowed to then increase that amount of calories for your body that you burn off exercising.
So the way we count the calories here is that we are looking at 3000 calories as a non training amount of calories just for you to stay status Que, in the weight department.
So even if exercise is important the way we control our body weight will be with calorie restricted intake, that we change down every 10 years up to 50 years, and then we stay there.
So then when we decrease our calorie intake over the years, it becomes even more important that the food and drinks we consume on a daily basis are of high nutrient quality.
So we are not goanna fill up on junk food or donuts, but rather on high quality food sources like chicken breasts, potatoes and veggies.
This is a typical super food plate for your dinner, loaded with protein , high quality slow carbs and antioxidants and the good type of fat.
This is a 500 calories meal, and it will keep you full for at least 6h.
So we have to be smarter the older we get when it comes down to fight against our own bodies metabolism slowing down.
Hope you learned something new.
Take care out there.
