If you’re a woman over 40, there’s a 99% chance you’re suffering from “The Curse.”
It’s harder to lose weight.
It’s harder to find the energy to stay alert and productive throughout the afternoon.
It’s harder to eat your favorite foods without them ending up on your hips and thighs.
It’s harder to fit into your favorite pants from last season.
Simply put, it’s just harder to do everything that used to come so easily!
But did you know you could overcome The Curse of Age 40 and reverse all of these side effects of aging simply by boosting your metabolism with 4 simple tricks?
These tricks will boost you up into the 1% of women your age that look, feel, and move like they are 20 years younger (aka, the women you probably sneer at in the gym!).
If you’ve ever wondered “What’s the secret?” you’ve come to the right place — because you’re about to discover 4 simple tricks that will boost your metabolism by 50% or more.
Trick #4: Optimize your Metabolic Hormone System – Hormonal balance is a first line of defense in keeping your metabolism functioning properly.
As we age, hormone production changes. It seems the good ones decrease while the bad ones — like the stress hormone cortisol — increase. Increased cortisol levels are common as we enter our 40s, and that puts strain on the adrenals, causing adrenal fatigue and leading to increased belly fat.
Adrenal disorders can lead to high testosterone levels in women, too. While proper levels of testosterone can increase muscle mass and fat burning, too much of it in women, causes a host of unpleasant side effects, including acne, facial hair, a deeper voice, and decreased breast size.
The difficult part is that adrenal disorders are tough to diagnose — and even tougher to treat.
Trick #3: Improve Your Metabolic Recovery Profile – The first, and most important, step to improving your metabolic recovery profile is getting the proper amount of quality sleep. Here are the TWO best ways to do this:
- Keeping your bedroom dark and cool (we recommend no more than 68 degrees F)
- Keeping your bedroom free of electronics.
Your body needs adequate sleep for myriad reasons, but one of the most compelling is that a lack of sleep increases the production of ghrelin, a hormone that makes you feel hungry. It also decreases leptin, the hormone that signals you to stop eating when you’re full.
Getting 7 to 8 hours of sleep a night balances those hormones and helps you keep your waistline in check. But getting enough quality sleep is difficult if you have work and family obligations that don’t always fit into a routine schedule.
Trick #2: Give Your Body Plenty of Metabolic-Boosting Nutrients – Hydrate, increase your fiber intake, and don’t skip meals or over-restrict calories. This causes your body to go into starvation mode and contributes to muscle loss. When you lose muscle, you also lose its fat-burning benefits, which leads to a vicious cycle of fat gain.
Healthy eating is a great tool in boosting your metabolism, but it can be tough to fit adequate quality nutrition into your routine (and budget!) on a daily basis.
Trick #1: We Call It The ‘Morning Metabolic Miracle’ – And It’s Your Best Weapon Against The Curse of 40. Once you use this Trick to ignite your body’s fat-burning power, you can burn fat all day long — even if you’re sitting at a desk, and even if you occasionally miss out on the ideal night of sleep.
