Denise Austin’s tips for fighting fat after 40


4. Crank up cardio workouts. This doesn’t mean kill yourself, however, the older you get the slower your metabolism is. It takes harder work to get it going at 40 than it did at 20.  Walking is great cardio and by simply adding hills and more speed walking will do the trick.  Austin suggest, interval walking as a great way to kick up those cardio workouts. “I love it, and it’s really helped me keep off weight after hitting 50. All you have to do is change the pace of your walk every two to four minutes, increasing your speed for a few minutes and then dropping back to a more moderate pace for a few minutes, and repeat that series for 30 minutes,” says Austin.

5. Plan your splurge day. “I think it really helps if you focus on losing weight one week at a time,” says Austin. “Aim to eat healthy six days out of the week, and then enjoy what I call a “super splurge” on the seventh day.” Splurging once a week or once a month will help you not feel deprived. Studies show that those who have do not deprive themselves during diets are more successful in weight loss. Portion control is key.
