Losing weight the right way can be tough, particularly as you get older. By ‘right’ I mean losing body fat rather than water and muscle, and then keeping it off. I’ve researched this a lot, and people often ask me for advice. This is a summary of the main things I’ve learned.
Before beginning, I should make a disclaimer. I’m not a GP, nor a professionally trained athlete. I’m just someone who’s worked to reach my optimal weight and body composition. The information, hints and tips I give below are what I’ve found to work for me, and are offered to encourage you to go and do your own research about how to achieve your personal goals. If you’re unsure about anything, always seek professional advice before embarking upon a programme of exercise and/or weight loss.
