  • Is it true a woman's metabolic rate decreases at age 25? What can I do.

    From Michigan :

    Is it true a woman's metabolic rate decreases at age 25? What can I do to boost a slowing metabolism?

    Besides genetics, muscle mass is the key driver of metabolism, as muscle is active tissue. After age 25 or so, both men and women tend to lose about 1/2 pound of muscle per year (because of both the clock and inactivity), and metabolism slows accordingly. To counteract this, you need to do a weight training program designed to maintain or build muscle mass. This involves exercises for the large muscles with a weight that causes fatigue after 8-12 reps. Most women will not end up looking bulky, because the muscle will just replace some of the extra fat (and women don't have the hormones for bulky muscles anyway.)


    That's it for this time,
