Women’s healthy weight day January 23 2020. Private Home Care is particularly passionate about women’s health. Any woman will tell you that it is harder for women to lose weight than men. This is because women store higher levels of fat in their body and men have higher levels of muscle. Women are typically smaller boned than men, so their caloric needs are lower, which means when eating at a restaurant it is easier for women to overeat. Women also experience more hormonal changes throughout the aging process. They have different needs at different times, which can be challenging to maintaining a healthy weight.
Here are some steps you can take to maintain a healthy weight:
- Consult with your doctor – they can help you set realistic goals and order screening tests that provide insight about your weight.
- Drink water regularly.
- Get enough sleep!
- Eat more fruits and veggies.
- Avoid processed foods as much as you can.
- Regular aerobic exercise – it can be walking or a zumba class at your gym, whichever you like best! It can be helpful to have a ‘workout buddy’ told hold each other accountable and make exercise more fun.
