Maintaining a healthy weight is important at any age, even for your aging loved one. But losing weight as they get older can be difficult. Seniors have a harder time burning calories than they did when they were younger, but that doesn’t mean they can’t shed off extra pounds.
When it comes to your loved one trying to lose weight, they need to follow the same golden rules that apply to anyone looking to slim down. There are also some specific tips seniors should follow when they are trying to lose weight.
Before your loved one starts a new regimen for weight loss, including exercises and diet changes, have them talk to their primary health physician.
