Immunity Boosting Foods for Women over 40

Many women will be under the assumption that losing weight after their 40s is very difficult and impossible. Despite this, it’s just a myth and a proper healthy balanced diet and exercises will possibly reduce weight.

At the age of 40s, you need a lot of nutritious food as there will be a change in the metabolism of the body. Mostly starting at the 40s you will be losing almost a half-pound of muscle every year which makes losing weight more difficult and these changes are due to a decrease in hormones, contracted activity levels, and medications you are going through. So it’s ideal to intake protein and nutritious food in your diet. Avoiding consumption of alcohol, and fizzy drinks is renowned to alleviate menopause symptoms.
