Health.com: Fat-Proof Your Life

Sculpt Muscles

Don’t want to eat less? Lift more. Since muscle mass diminishes with age, if you don’t do anything to replace it, your body will shift to more fat and less muscle—which slows down your metabolism even more, says Dr. Northrup.

Aim for two 40-minute sessions of weight training a week to keep muscle and bones at pre-meno level. Other days, try for 30 minutes of cardio, like dancing or the elliptical.

That simple formula—strength plus cardio—really can keep mid-life gain away.
