I have restarted my journey to improve my health. Especially, after a difficult year.
I believe I can answer the question, “can seniors lose belly fat?”
I also believe we can adjust our diets and lifestyles to improve our health and help our bodies shed fat. Specifically, belly fat. I am neither a doctor or a nutritionist. But I have experience as a fat man. And the dryer did not shrink my clothes. The refrigerator did!
Please follow along with me.
The following short video highlights the facts around the growing obesity problem in the United States and the need to lose weight.
All I ever wanted was the simple truth about losing belly fat.
Like so many other people, I have slowed down as I have aged. I walk slower; my metabolism is slower. We all have our aches and pains and trouble adjusting to the speed of the world.
I don’t know about you. But I have come to realize my weight gain is my fault and I need to do something about it.
I would have posted a picture of my belly. But I am afraid of having my website shut down for being obscene!
I have tried all kinds of diets, fads, exercises, and everything else I can think of. It has been so difficult to stick with it. Lost weight, gained weight, gained weight, lost weight, gained weight.
This time is different. I spent countless hours reading and researching weight loss and how to lose belly fat. I have talked to my family doctor and a nutritionist.
So I have started this website, to chronicle my journey to a healthier “me.”
As of today, the 9th day of February 2017, I am 67 years old, weigh 265 pounds, am 72 inches tall, am diabetic, take high blood pressure medication, and have a chronically sore back.
I know from my past experience and what I have read is that to lose belly fat a person must:
1. eat healthy, find a diet plan if I must
2. find easy and healthy recipes
3. follow healthy tips and techniques
4. find and use products that contribute to my well-being
My GOAL is to improve my eating habits to improve my lifestyle and lose 50 pounds by October. As of May 22nd, I am half way there.
To reach my goal, I will:
1. exercise more by going back to the gym to do low impact aerobic exercises,
2. start doing yoga again to improve my flexibility and mobility,
3. reduce my carbohydrate intake (good bye bread!), and
4. eat healthier.
