Losing Weight at any Age

Losing Weight at Any Age

As you've gotten older, have you found that what worked in your 20s for weight loss doesn't quite work in your 50s? As our bodies change with age, we experience new dietary and fitness challenges. It doesn't mean you can't lose weight, or that your healthy weight is bound to go up, it just means you have to adjust your regimen.

Fitness expert Matt Johnson offers a special series this week helping men and women lose weight at any age. Part I of the series speaks to the 50-, 60-, and 70-year-olds.

Check back later this week for Part II, when Matt offers his advice for 20-, 30-, and 40-year-olds in our Lose Weight at Any Age series.
