Are you eating to fuel your body and be stronger, or are you missing out on a key component that could drastically change your ability to develop and maintain lean muscle mass?
Eating healthy isn’t just important for weight management. To develop more lean muscle, and maintain it, you need to be fueling your body properly. It’s vital.
As one ages, the thought of eating healthy and maintaining a nutritious diet is typically only considered when you need to lose weight or fight disease. Aging brings much more than the threat of gaining weight, developing high-blood pressure or high cholesterol.
What many don’t realize is the impact losing lean muscle mass has
on your ability to live a long, healthy life.
Throughout life, the presence of lean muscle mass will impact your ability to live a better life in multiple areas. As you age into your 50s and beyond, the atrophy of muscle becomes more rapid and can impact your quality of life and your health in multiple ways. According to Healthline.com, “After middle age, adults lose 3% of their muscle strength every year, on average.”
The impact that this ongoing muscle loss can have on your body largely contributes to other areas of your health such as:
– The ability to control your weight
– Cardiovascular health
– The ability to participate in activities
– Self – Confidence
And Much More!
