The best ways to maintain weight when you are over 40.

Obesity, which is linked to an increased risk of many serious illnesses and diseases, has been a public health problem for years. More than 42% of middle-aged adults between 40 and 59 years of age are obese, the age group with the highest obesity prevalence. As you age, your metabolism slows down and hormonal imbalances become a problem that changes the way the body breaks down fat.
