Hi, Can one lose weight at 45 y.o. with boxing fitness 3 x week and eating sensibly. Hear so much after 40 hard to lose. Thank you.

Absolutely!: It is harder to lose weight as we age and some medications may make this more difficult. However, cardio activities help a great deal such as your boxing class. Your best bet is 5 times weekly for 30 minutes but this can be varied by adding walking into your week. Eating sensibly, but not undereating, is also vital. Undereating is as problemmatic as overeating! ...Read more

Lifestyle: Hi. Healthy lifestyle should be life-long (ergo, the "life" in lifestyle). One week of eating right does't make up for a lifetime of unhealthy average American diet. Eat a healthy diet for life, and exercise regularly for life. Running is great for you, but data are mixed on effects on weight loss. But still, if you're just starting a healthy lifestyle, over time you probably will lose weight. ...Read more
